People that work for record labels must watch shit like the above video and just think what the fuck the point is. Frank Ocean, one of the best crooners in the world, fucking around in his bedroom recording shit, posting said shit on the internet, no middle man, no record label, no A&R guy, no record store - nothing between Frank in his bedroom and the consumer at the other end. More importantly, content with NO COST associated with it. The same can be said about his latest song, Pyramids (below) - an 8 minute epic about Frank getting his rocks with a hooker - available for absolutely no cost, legally, on the internet. I remember going to the record store in 1996 and buying the single for Gangster's Paradise which cost, and I'm not making this shit up, 16 bucks. SIXTEEN WHOLE FUCKING DOLLARS FOR ONE SONG, IN 1996. It was imported, which explains the crazy mark-up, but still. The internet in this context has taken out the need for a middle man and no one except the record labels can say it's a bad thing. DD
