Harvard Graduate rocks the Music World

Hello to our new subscribers from Russia  and Ukraine, приветствовать and Відношення. respect.

We again bring to your attention  one of our favourite mad music producers yet to blow up like nitro, the multi talented Ryan Leslie. He has an interesting story,  very unlike the normal RnB (sorry Urban Contemporary) and hip hop artist. Ryan has the distinction of having attended  Harvard at age 15 and graduating at 19 and then chose to pursue a career in music, a career that so far has proved to be quite successful. Actually Ryan is much closer to the Caribbean than you are aware, so we will claim some of his talent from his Caribbean roots.

This guy is no joke he scored a 1600 in his SAT, a perfect score.

His parents are both Salvation Army officers, his mom a trained pianist of Caribbean descent and his father a trombonist from Barbados and the family lived in Trinidad for a while So he grew up in a strong  musical family. Lets first see a throw back of Ryan Leslie from 1994 when he was an aspiring 16 year old. 




Then flash forward 19 years and Ryan Leslie is now  a star, we love his videos because it showcases his impressive production talents. forget the beginning and the end of this video which is just promo fluff, Ryan cruising in a Bentley, Ryan taking off his sweater, Ryan putting back on his sweater, Ryan jumping onto his G5 and other materialistic flossin.

Jus njoy the Mad Amazing music production on this and the AWESOME mad vocals of Jasmine Villegas
Trust us the creative process isn't like this, artists don't just walk into the studio and knock out a song in one take, it takes numerous takes over numerous hours but I suppose for the purposes of the video it looks impressive.

Nevertheless it is Maaad catchy this head noddin track......
