(Photos+Videos) Ryan Leslie Brings Out Fabolous & G-Unit During NYC Show!

Last night, Ryan Leslie put on quite the show at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC along with some very special guests for his #RenegadeNation Tour. First, the Black Mozart proved to the crowd why he’s dubbed as a “musical genius” while playing numerous instruments and performing countless hits including “Addiction,” “Diamond Girl,” “Jibberish” and many more. He then brought Fab out to the stage to perform their extensive catalog of collab tracks together including “Addiction and “Lay Down,” just to name a few. To everyone’s surprise, G-Unit rappers Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, Tony Yayo and Kidd Kidd came out and ripped the stage along side R. Les and Loso. Some famous faces were in the house including Emily B, Drake’s OVO sound producer Mike Zombie, Victoria Secret model Lyndsey Scott and many other familiar faces. (Shout out to Ryan Leslie and his publicist Savannah for giving me the pleasure of doing an exclusive interview and for hooking it up with the pass for the show. Also huge s/o to Jamaal for the super dope pics/vids!)
