R-Les is one of my favorite producers right now. He's the Kayne West of R&B, but he can play any instrument and doesn't need to sample or steal anything to make a hit. He's also super smart since he went to Harvard.

Check out this interview he did with HipHop DX.


With the heavy radio play of the single “Diamond Girl” to the second hit single “Addiction” the artist, producer, songwriter and executive known as Ryan Leslie has been on the long hard path to stardom.

Many have seen him from his intimate videos on YouTube where he gained online stardom with millions viewing his page or subscribing to it. Some have even gone as far as calling him the R&B Kanye West. He has produced songs for Beyonce, Britney Spears and Usher. Creating the global marketing and media company, NextSelection Lifestyle Group he exemplifies the word talented and knows very well how to handle his time. With his efforts in many different outlets its surprising he had time at all to go through an interview, luckily he made the time.

Check these videos out. :)

Ryan Leslie is sick. Who needs to sample motown songs when you can come up with beats like that by yourself. The beat he did for Cassie on Sometimes (first video) is one of my favs.

Yeah he does a lot of Cassie's songs.

Thats why I like some of her songs though her vocal ability isn't that good. :lol:

He does most of Cassie's songs since she's signed to his label.

Her vocal ability isn't the best, but she has been improving. I like her new song.

I could sing over a Ryan Leslie beat and it would sound good.

And I can't sing.
