Frank Ocean: Kanye West pens McDonald's poem for Boys Don't Cry magazine
And we're lovin' it
Frank Ocean’s album release is the gift that keeps on giving. In addition to visual album Endless, a music video for “Nikes,” and this weekend’s debut of Blonde, the singer delivered a Boys Don’t Cry magazine that includes a poem from Kanye West about — wait for it — McDonald’s.
According to a list of credits, Tom Sachs, Tyrone Lebon, and Wolfgang Tillman are some of the artists who contributed to the mag, but Yeezy’s piece of writing about the golden arches is a scene-stealer.
“McDonalds man / McDonalds man / The French fries had a plan,” the poem reads, according to photos posted to social media. “The salad bad and the ketchup made a band / Cus the French fries had a plan / The French fries had a plan.”
Accompanying West’s words are photos of him rolling up to the drive-thru of a McDonald’s shot by photogrpher Nabil Elderkin.
“I had the time of my life making all of this,” Ocean wrote in a Tumblr post, referring to the albums and magazine. “Thank you all. Especially those of you who never let me forget I had to finish. Which is basically every one of ya’ll.”
