Ryan Leslie's upcoming album, Les Is More, is dropping October 23rd, he announces tonight on Twitter. I am among the many who feel that R-Les is one of the more underappreciated artists in the game today and having said that, here's another album I'm going to be looking forward to this fall!
Singer/songwriter/producer Ryan Leslie joins Sgt. Tibs for an exclusive interview at the Pepsi Refresh Project event at the Harold Washington Library in Chicago. R-Les talks about his role in the Pepsi Refresh Project, where he speaks words of inspiration and performs to the students. He also discusses alternative meanings of his upcoming single “I Choose You” and what to expect from the video that is soon to come. Finally, Ryan Leslie leaves us with some insightful advice for the aspiring youth about getting your college degree, surrounding yourself with mentors and like-minded peers, and pursuing your passion. The Harvard grad couldn’t have said it any better! We were impressed by Ryan Leslie’s candor and genuine love for everyone throughout the event and continue to look forward to a BIG year to come from R-Les in 2010! Stay tuned for more coverage of his performance at the Pepsi Refresh Project in the days to come. Enjoy!
