Frank Ocean took time out of episode 006 of blonded RADIO to pay tribute to André 3000. Having played both "Ms. Jackson" by OutKast and also Erykah Badu's "Hello," Ocean shouted out the rapper and argued that he doesn't factor into top 5 MC debates as he's so clearly the best.

"You know when you're not on the list but you're still No. 1?," Ocean asked. "You're not top 5 because you're No. 1. You're not involved in top 5 conversations because you're No. 1. That's André 3000."

André 3000 appeared on both of Ocean's albums, contributing "Solo (Reprise)" to Blonde and "Pink Matter" to Channel Orange.

Elsewhere in the episode was the premiere of new A$AP Rocky song "RAF" featuring Ocean, Lil Uzi Vert, and Quavo, plus an alternative version of "Biking."
