Frank Ocean To Present Rick Rubin With Honor At Secret Genius Awards

The legend will be honored by a newcomer for his contributions to the music business.

(AllHipHop News) Frank Ocean will present Rick Rubin with an honor at Spotify's Secret Genius Awards.

The singer-songwriter will make a rare public appearance when he delivers the Legendary Genius Award to Rubin, the record producer and co-founder of music labels such as Def Jam Records and American Recordings, at the ceremony to be held in Los Angeles on November 1.

Throughout his career, Rubin has worked with a diverse array of artists, including the Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, Public Enemy, Kanye West, Lady Gaga and Ed Sheeran.

"There is likely no better person to help us tell the importance of Spotify's Secret Genius Awards narrative better than Rick Rubin, a true legend to our industry," said Spotify's global head of creator services, Troy Carter. "While Rick's greatness is far from a secret at this stage of his impressive career, he is an inspiration to all the quietly known producers, songwriters, and artists, who are responsible for the music we discover and love every day."

The Secret Genius Awards is comprised of 13 main categories and has been designed to celebrate people within the songwriting community that contribute to the creative work behind some of the most streamed songs on Spotify.
