After releasing an impressive mixtape the other month, which recieved great feedback and so much praise for the project, I went to find out if I could get my hands on some of Frank Ocean’s earlier material. ‘The Lonny Breaux Collection’(named after his previous alias) is a collection of 60+ unreleased tracks which was made prior his ‘Nostaligic, Ultra’ mixtape. The collection does sound completely different from his last mixtape; this compilation sounds more like the R&B we have heard before, whereas his latest mixtape is more like what R&B should be sounding like, if there was blues rather than just rhythm. but nonetheless, it is good music.
Amazing. It's almost too much to handle - almost. Even though I agree with DF in that most of it sounds like "R&B we've heard before," it's still pretty impressive coming from such a young talent. I don't know of any other singer who's given us a look into his portfolio of work as much as Frank Ocean. And for that, I THANK YOU.
For the fans of the Odd Future singer and songwriter that haven’t heard his previous material, go ahead and cop that ‘Lonny Breaux Collection’.
You’re most likely a Gen Y babe who refuses to settle for a ‘good enough’ life. You want the whole enchilada. You want the energy that comes along with being authentic, the “I love my life” sparkle, the inner calm that surfaces when you’re on the right path.
You want to Rock Your Right Life, Right Now.
You’re here because you want something more. You’re willing to examine your life with honesty. To throw out what’s not working and face your Quarterlife Crisis head on. You’re gutsy enough to embrace the authentic you. To go after the big dreams. To take a chance on glimmers of intuition. And most of all you’re bold enough to do it NOW.
This is your life, after all. Jump In. Make it Count.
As one of those ladies who wishes she would sit down, unplug and write it out in a journal more often, The Joy Juice could not come at a more perfect time. I'm so excited for these prompts to get me journaling and talking shit out again. I get so wrapped up in my day-to-day that doing stuff like this for myself often falls to the wayside (aka "I'll do it when I have time.") I'm sure we've all felt like that sometimes!
