Frank Ocean was recently named “Rookie of the Year” in GQ’s “Men of the Year” issue that’s now on newsstands. Today, we get a behind-the-scenes look at the crooner’s photoshoot at Los Angeles’ Greystone Mansion. The singer/songwriter reveals advice Kanye West gave him, appreciation for Adele’s 21 and Tyler, The Creator’s GOBLIN albums, lessons learned from Jay-Z, hobbies including Kung Fu and Tai-Chi, plus his love for the color orange.

Spotted at the newly launched Frank Ocean fansite, created by Dejan Pralica (also responsible for Kid Cudi’s fan site).
