The lyrics are totally original, and its a free mixtape song. White people that comment on these articles call all black artists rappers. I remember when Nate Dogg died, they called him a rapper in the title of the article

im trying to figure out why some ppl are calling him a rapper though.
...Because (white) Mainstream news media a.ssumes that all black male artists who haven't crossed over are rappers by default. They did the same sh!t when Nate Dogg died.

Hotel California is my favorite song of all time. I like what frank ocean did with the record. He is introducing younger generations to the eagles catalog. The Eagles and their fans should be happy if you ask me

i gotta say tho. . .

arguing with these white folks makes me really appreciate how dope hip-hop is in terms of the attitude towards music

50 Cent came up by using other n*ggas beats and songs and making them his own and its not even thought to sue him.

ANd he used to sell alot of them joints in store for money

these white people be trippin over their copyright

I think that Frank Ocean's version is better but the hook isnt better than the original

I think that fank ocean did this for publicity to blow his name up
the song was on a mixtape that was released in feb 2011,how did he do it to blow himself up, he also did a full on coldplay strawberry swing cover and did his own version of mgmt's electric feel over the instrumental on that tape.
