Nas has a lot to say about artists past and present. One newbie that the Queensbridge lyricist is apparently a fan of is Odd Future's Frank Ocean. Nas has praised the Odd Future collective in the past, but reserved specific encouragement for Ocean.
"Frank Ocean is just a new gust of wind to move things out the way and give us something new," Nas said in the past about Ocean. In a recent interview, he reiterated his enthusiasm for the singer. "Just the garbage, the garbage pail kids out there that's everywhere," Nas said in reference to much of the current music on the air. "Everybody just don't have it, so somebody that comes out like Frank Ocean and does it his way and sings his way, it's fresh, it's good for the game."
