Les is More when it comes to what fans can expect from Ryan Leslie’s third studio album, in stores today. Superstar musician, producer, and rapper extraordinaire, R. Les treats fans to two new motion pictures from a visual album to compliment the studio album.
“Maybachs & Diamonds” tells a luxurious tale of what he thinks his woman is deserving of. While “Swiss Francs” offers the braggadocio theme of how he likes his money, suited up with a side of European flare.
With a Harvard education and a musical resume that boasts collaborations with the best of the best in hip-hop, Mr. Leslie can now add Roc Nation MC, Jay Electronica to his list. During his sit down on “RapFix Live” earlier this month, “The Diamond Girl” singer explained how he hooked up with the elusive God MC.
“He found me. He found me on Twitter,” he explained. “I responded to the tweet and next thing you know, I was out on a farm in England and that’s where he was recording.” Expect to hear a verse from Jay Elec on Ryan’s new album.
What do you think of his new visuals?
