Who is Frank Ocean?

Growing Up 1 of 7

Frank Ocean was originally born as Christopher Breaux in Long Beach, California on October 28, 1987. He and his family moved out to New Orleans, Louisiana just a few years later and was heavily influenced by the local jazz scene.

While he was a teenager, Ocean worked odd jobs and saved up his money for studio time. He began developing his own experimental style and continued to pursue music while attending the University of New Orleans.
