R. Les for Pres.

March 8, 2009

My current artist of the moment is the young genius Ryan Leslie. Now for those of you who don’t know this man he’s a cat who has put in work in music behind the scenes. He’s written songs and produced for artists like New Edition, Danity Kane, Cassie and Britney Spears. His debut album is finally in stores and it’s the first R&B album I’ve been excited about in a LONG time. Dude has put together a solid R&B record that makes me groove when I listen to it. He has also launched an ill viral campaign for himself. Actually the way I got introduced to him was through this Youtube video of him making his second single Addiction.

From that moment I knew I had to cop dudes album and I’m happy to say it was a worthy purchase. In these days and times people would rather download an album and get around to making a purchase later… maybe. I guess I’m still in the old mindset where I like going to a record store and purchasing a CD. I just found his latest music video from the album on his website http://www.RyanLeslie.com and it’s another banger. This guy is really talented. His voice is not the strongest by far but his melodies are way on point. Check this out. Oh… and he directed this video as well. TALENTED!
