The track Racks, has references to drugs, and shit. I looked it up on google, and he had someone else write the song for him. I don't see you saying there's anything wrong about that.
I'm a MASSIVE Angel fan, and I always watch his interviews on YouTube. The truth is, that guy breathes music- because he's got music blood. His father, is Tendai Charles- a former song writer. His music does come from the heart, soul, etc. Because he raps, or sings about any experiences he's had, and what experiences you may get in the future.
And no, Angel didn't pay Frank Ocean to write any of his music. Angel wanted to work with Ocean, and there you go: that's the reason behind Ocean making a song for Angel so Angel could put it in his album. In fact, why don't you listen to Angel? All of his mixtapes, albums, etc- most of his songs are independent.
