Jay-Z And Ludacris Film DUELING Cognac Commercials + Frank Ocean Posts OPEN LETTER On Fame, His New Love & Oreos

Business moguls Ludacris and Jay-Z have both released commercials for their brands of cognac. Decide who made the best ad inside and read Frank Ocean's latest (interesting) open letter of ramblings to fans.

 

Jay-Z and Ludacris are both staking their claim on the cognac industry with the release of new ads for D'USSE and Conjure respectively. 

Jay-Z's ad (which is silent) appears to have been shot in a swanky apartment and shows the rapper smoking a cigar in slow motion while staring at the NYC skyline. 

Meanwhile, Ludacris' commercial took a more familiar approach as director Larenz Tate (yes...the actor) put the rapper amidst a room of party-goers in a lounge setting.  And former Danity Kane member D. Woods makes a cameo as the lounge's entertainment. 

Larenz talked about directing the clip saying, “It was a pleasure working with my good friend Chris Bridges on the Conjure commercial. It feels good to work alongside people you respect. I hope my vision as a director gives the world a glimpse of the new level that Chris is taking his cognac brand. Cheers!”

In other music news......

Frank Ocean posted an open letter (written in his "stream of consciousness" style) on his Tumblr recently where he let fans in on some of the things floating through his head.  In the Notepad letter, (he obviously hates paragraphs by the way), he talks about writing a novel, his new relationship, working with people like Jay-Z and Pharrell and reveals that Oreos don't taste good with almond milk. 

Frank ended by saying that he's working on a lot of music.  But judging from all the things going on in his head, maybe the homie could use a break.

I'm sorry but Jay's

I'm sorry but Jay's commercial is good in theory but the decision to make it silent was not a smart one....it was so boring I didn't finish it. Maybe a final video will have music. Luda's commercial is nice. Frank Ocean is mad talented and he has issues....like most artistic people. Imma pray for him.
