Frank Ocean’s Tribute for Virgil Abloh: ‘You’re A Hero’

After extremely The tragic and untimely death of Virgil Abloh at the age of 41 This Sunday, the hip-hop and fashion worlds are reeling from the loss of such a monumental talent. Kanye West dedicated his latest Sunday Service to his longtime collaborators and artists like Tyler Creator praised Virgil’s influence on them, and although he barely posts on social media anymore, Frank Ocean has also given his heart to honor the late designer on Instagram today.

As always, no one is better at putting the most important things in words than Frank, so I’ll let his words speak for themselves.

“In 2018, I believe I was called V and asked him how he was able to do hundreds of shows a year and do so many fashion collections each year, being a father and a husband at the same time. and send EVERYONE’s messages back with enthusiasm, emojis and encouragement and seemingly effortless ease. I can’t remember how he replied verbatim but I’m sure it’s possible to quote what he said… he can always quote. But the gist of his answer was that he was interested in living and living to the fullest extent… which has proven impossible today because he was AFTER.

I will miss you. When Ryan went to his prom, you got him some pieces from your new collection at LV and he was GEEKED. Can’t get him to take it off. When I went to Miami and you played a set on the beach in 2016, you played “White Ferrari” – a song with no drums or bass anywhere to find lol – and started a very long song. When I play you demos of shit, I’m working, or show you how Homer before it’s ready, you put the batteries in my back. When my brother passed I never said anything because it was too much but he loves you and really respects you. He’s going to fashion school and everything. He wants to be a designer. My family was as proud of you as you were our family. I know grief is love you can’t express so here’s an attempt to show it. Love you V. I’m a hero. ”
