Jay-Z and Kanye West Are Working With Frank Ocean

In a Tumblr note addressed to himself five years ago, Frank Ocean (Odd Future's non-controversial member) writes, "i don’t wanna spoil too much for you, but.. you’re on a plane right now to the east coast to work with kanye west & jay-z. it’s all working out kid. you made it." (Aw!) Ocean is presumably taking part in sessions for Watch the Throne, for which an alleged track list has been floating around, as well as a rumored July 4 release date. Although, if the duo is still in the studio (in between Sweet 16 appearances, of course), both of those things seem unlikely to be accurate. By the way, Ocean previously worked with Beyoncé (he's apparently a credited co-writer on 4's "I Miss You") and Nas, so dude is just racking up the anecdotes. [FrankOcean]
