In case you don’t know, Frank Ocean is a singer/songwriter out of California who is also a member of the eccentric Odd Future Collective. He’s worked with such big names as Beyonce and Kanye West in the studio. But Frank’s biggest claim to fame is going toe-to-toe with troubled singer Chris Brown on

Well, Brown’s cousins caught up with Frank yesterday and they asked him to “take the fade.” I’m assuming “take the fade” means to get out of his expensive ride in the middle of the street and take a beat down.

Not surprisingly, Frank, 23, declined their invitation to scrap — presumably because he didn’t have his keyboard or monitor with him for protection.
