Lil Wayne's "No Frank Ocean" Slur Is the New "No Homo"
There's a new way of declaring "no homo" before complimenting another dude's ridiculous abs or quipping that homie's butt sags in JNCO jeans. His name is Frank Ocean.
Instead of yelling "no homo," Wayne claims "no Frank Ocean" when his sexual orientation's threatened. And just so there's no confusion, Weezy also admits on the track that he eats "pussy for breakfast."

The "Turn on the Lights" remix surfaced earlier this morning, about two weeks after the Young Money Cash Money capo dropped his latest mixtape, Dedication 4.
On "Lights," Wayne raps, "Tell her I skate/I ain't got no worries/No Frank Ocean, I'm straight," replacing his once-ubiquitous "no homo" phrase with an unnecessary personal jab.
Ocean has yet to comment and Weezy hasn't addressed the controversial line, but the lyrics in question have sparked debate.
"No offense to Tunechi," writes Hip Hop Wired's Kazeem Famuyide, "but Future's version definitely has a little bit more feeling behind it."
Rap Radar calls "Turn on the Lights" an "obnoxious single," blasting it as one of "various records" that Weezy's jumped on as of late.
Meanwhile,Pitchfork says it's "extremely raunchy" but "more engaging" than anything on Dedication 4.
What do you think? Is the remix better than the original? Or just lazy, homophobic crap?
