Before we give up on Frank, it was revealed that his album will drop this Friday. Last month, our friends at HYPEBEAST caught up with the Brooklyn artist where he talked about his work, which are inspired by Jamaican sound-clash culture, New York corner stores and Defender, the classic 1980 arcade game.
