We haven't heard much about the Rich The Kid / Frank Ocean studio session that allegedly occurred earlier this month, but Rich The Kid has come forward to talk about the now infamous FaceTime screenshot he posted showing Frank's face off to scores of fans who haven't seen head or tail of the artist in quite some time.

In an interview with XXL, Rich The Kid explained how he got in touch with Frank in the first place and what happened after.

XXL: How did you end up linking up with Frank Ocean?

Rich the Kid: I posted the picture and it went viral. Everybody seen me talking to Frank Ocean so they know something is coming, so something is coming with Frank Ocean just wait on it and you know, people were just like “Whoa, Rich the Kid found Frank Ocean!”

Did Frank Ocean reach out to you or did you initiate the contact?

I reached out to him. I called him on FaceTime and I was like “Where you at?” and he was like, “I’m in L.A. at the studio and it’s time to cook.”

What happened after the picture was posted?

After I posted the picture of Frank Ocean, I think his little brother called him and said the picture was all over the internet, so Frank Ocean was like "I’m not on social media like that but it’s cool. I'm not mad about it."

Did Ocean's management reach out to you about the photo?

One of my management people called me and told me they were trying to keep him offline, so I apologize for that.
