Ryan Leslie has been dubbed as a “musical genius” for years now and nobody fits the description more perfectly than him. Graduating from Harvard University at the tender age of 19, R. Les knew he wanted to pursue a career in the music industry and he made it happen. Not only did he dominate the music business over the years, but he has also taken his knowledge of both social media and technology to another level, which helped contribute to his extreme success.
With the launch of his artist-to-fan platform called Disruptive Multimedia, R. Les allows his fans to contact him directly via text message (read the interview below for his phone number!) He also created an exclusive Ryan Leslie fan-club called the #Renegades. Along with a one-time $12 membership fee, you get access to his Black Mozart album along with a bunch of other dope perks including the chance to have a personable relationship with the “Diamond Girl” artist. To promote his upcoming project entitled M.Z.R.T. (pronounced “Mozart,”) Ryan will be debuting a new video every month starting in September until all of his music from the album is released.
Ryan Leslie will be bringing his #RenegadeNation tour to NYC this Wednesday, August 20th at the Bowery Ballroom located at 6 Delancey Street in New York, NY. Doors open at 7:00 PM and tickets can be purchased here. To read the full exclusive IFWT interview with Ryan Leslie to find out his dream collab, definition of a perfect date and
