Congratulations to Odd Future standout Frank Ocean, who garnered a “Rookie Of The Year” nod in GQ’s “Men of the Year” issue.

Here’s an excerpt from GQ:

Earlier this year, 24 year-old rapper Frank Ocean was unknown. But after posting his album Nostalgia Ultra online, Ocean suddenly found himself catching the attention of some very important people – Diddy even went as far as to invite him over for Roscoe’s Chicken n’ Waffles. That’s why Frank Ocean is GQ’s “Rookie of the Year.” He’s overcome his heartbreaks and his crappy Kinko’s job and is now regularly fielding calls from Nas, Beyonce, and Jay-Z and Kanye — all of whom are looking to enlist his lyrical candor and humor. And what does he think of this success now? “I got to grab my nuts and point my middle finger up.”

Congratulations Frankie, we are proud to see you shining!
