Report: Frank Ocean Fires Management and Publicist

Odd Future singer making major changes to his team ahead of sophomore album release.

Published June 26, 2014

Frank Ocean is reportedly moving on from the support team that helped him with his critically acclaimed, Grammy Award-winning debut, Channel Orange

According to Complex, Frank has dropped his managers and publicist for as yet undisclosed reasons (none of the parties have commented so far, not even on Tumblr).

Frank had been working with Christian and Kelly Clancy of 4 Strikes Management since 2010. The team also handles Odd Future; along with OF members Earl Sweatshirt and Tyler, The Creator as solo artists; Solange Knowles; and Mac Miller.

His former publicist, Life or Death PR, continues to handle OF as well. However, word is he's taken on Hollywood and New York-based ID PR (who also claims Alicia Keys and Jennifer Lawrence as clients) ahead of his next album, his sophomore effort, expected sometime this year.

No word yet on who his new management team may be.
