There are a lot of hip hop and rap artists out there that are positive and underrated. Ryan Leslie happens to be one of them. My son introduced me to him a couple of years ago. I enjoy his music because no matter whether he’s singing or rapping, he has a message in his lyrics that you can relate too. Born in Washington, D.C. and raised in Stockton California Ryan Leslie is multi-talented and intelligent. He received a 1600 on his SAT score and graduated from Harvard at the age of 19. Ryan Leslie sings, raps, write songs, produces records, arranges music, plays the guitar, bass, keyboards, drums and trumpet. Ryan’s debuted in 2007 with his single "Diamond Girl" and he just keeps put out fantastic music. Ryan Leslie has been doing his thing since the age 14. He was tutoring kids and traveling as a musical ambassador. Ryan Leslie is the whole package, it amazes me how underrated he is. Some of my favorite songs are "Diamond Girl", "Addiction", “Pleaze Pleaze Pleaze”, "How It Was Supposed to Be", “Glory” and "Maybachs and Diamonds".
