Exclusive Interview: Ryan Leslie Is Probably The Smartest Man In The Music Business; Talks SuperPhone, Rihanna, Cassie & more

ryan-leslie

SFPL‘s Gabriel Williams recently caught up with Ryan Leslie during his concert at the Highline Ballroom in New York City. The talented singer-songwriter-lyricist-musician-producer and entrepreneur held an exclusive event for his fans, in which he performed a plethora his songs, and even went back into his music catalog of renowned hits.

In case you were under a rock, Ryan is a well-respected Grammy-nominated musician, tech entrepreneur and champion of artist rights who has made it his mission to transform the way that people create, share and meaningfully connect with their greatest supporters.

ryan-leslie

A Harvard graduate at 19 who has been lauded by Kanye West as one of the music industry’s only capable creative directors, today Leslie is known within the industry as living on the forefront of music, business and innovation.

Independently, Leslie has been able to earn over $2 million in one album cycle with the support of just 15,000 fans through Superphone.

Musically, Leslie is also a highly respected artist and Grammy-nominated producer who’s worked with Kanye, Chris Brown, Cassie, Fabolous and Rick Ross. In 2013, Leslie released his subscription-based lifetime album MZRT, which releases one song every month for the rest of his career.

‘MZRT’ subscriptions are available to a limited group of 1,000 friends and supporters. Higher support levels come with greater access to Leslie’s world and creative process through exclusive content. He only accepts support for the album during months where a song is released.

After the show, Gabriel sat down with Ryan as they discussed a few topics from new music, new artists that he’s listening to, Rihanna, fashion, his lucrative business called SuperPhone, and even open to the possibility of getting back into the studio with Cassie, if asked.

What’s Ryan been up to?

Traveling the world, that’s what I do. I just came back from Tel Aviv and it was beautiful. I spent a lot of time overseas in Europe and everything.

Project in the works?

My project is a lifetime album. So, I am dropping a song every month until I decide to retire from the game. The way you subscribe to it, you send me a text, you authorize a payment, then you can say how much you think the song is worth. People give me anywhere from between $1 to $100 a song. Shout out to Christopher! I’ve been giving songs away for the last nine months and he gave me $900 for nine songs. Pretty crazy, right?

New artists you’re checking for like Bryson Tiller, Torey Lanez?

I’m listening to Destiny Ryan, who was just on stage with me tonight. I think the names that you mentioned have more than enough exposure, so for me it’s about exposing that next wave of talent. I think her talent speaks for itself. She came out and really ripped her performance tonight and I’m looking forward to seeing how the world responds to her.

Any artists you would like to work with that you haven’t yet?

I wanted to work with Prince, but he gated out on me before I got the chance to get in the studio with him! You know, I have a very short list of legends I wish I could get in the studio with. I believe two of my last living legends would be Bootsy Collins and Stevie Wonder. Bootsy on bass, you know is incredible, and Stevie for sure. I performed for Stevie once at an ESPN party and that was crazy. He was sitting at the table with his family. But yeah, that would be just amazing. I mean, I would consider him one of my teachers.

Fashion?

Japanese styling, you know what I mean? Tonight is pretty simple: I still got the timbs going, Top Man you know, I like to keep it simple with the basics. But you know, it’s all about the silhouette. You’d never think this is a size small, because it’s intentionally oversized. Yeah, it’s pretty fresh.

Rihanna’s “Work”, I can tell that’s your favorite song, isn’t it?

Well, actually, you know it’s a couple of things…one of my former right hand guys was shooting a lot of my content for like 5 years, and Rihanna’s team called and said: “Hey, we love your content. Do you have another guy like the guy who’s shooting yours?”. I didn’t. I knew that was going to be a crazy opportunity for him, and so he’s now actually Rihanna’s personal archivist. So, whenever I get a chance to link up with him, he has just like hours and hours, and hours of footage. He gets excited about records and, he told me that this record was going to be crazy [and showed me footage]. I knew from the moment I saw his edit from behind the scenes, that it was going to be infectious. So, I intentionally don’t listen to it on the radio, because I knew it was going to haunt me everywhere, and then it just so happens to be one of my girls favorite songs. We drive and we travel a lot. We just shot a video in Port Antonio together so that was basically the soundtrack for the past however long that song has been out. Whenever we get in the car, that’s the first one in the playlists.

Would you like to work with Rihanna?

Yeah, I would love to. It’s crazy, I mean Riri and Cassie both came out almost at identical times. She had “Pon De Replay” and Cassie had “Me and You.” It’s just pretty insane the body of work that Rihanna’s put together. I think she drops a new album every nine months. She has an incredible team around her. Great creative; I love her style vocabulary. I love the collaborations she’s done. I remember watching when she first got together with Freda Gianni. When Freda first came on at Gucci and they did the tattoo heart collection for whatever cause she was working on. I really like that movement. I see what she’s doing with Puma. You know, man, I just like the whole movement.

Are you and Cassie maybe getting back in the studio anytime soon?

I haven’t really spoken to her in probably like years now. Definitely been following her career, so I’ve been watching. I saw she just came out with a film with Terrence J, so I think that’s an indicator that she’s moving into Hollywood and major motion pictures. I wish nothing but the best to her and her family. I got to know her family pretty well. But I’m always extremely accessible so should anyone want to work with me my number is public. I think ya’ll might have posted it before, but that number that’s on my Twitter and Instagram? That is my direct cell: 646-887-6978, SuperPhone.

SFPL x ‘The Perfect Match’ Exclusive: “What makes someone your Perfect Match?”, Take 4-Steps To Find That Special Someone

041-TPM_Day2-00394

Is there such a thing as the perfect match? Charlie is convinced there isn’t, at least for him. A playboy who avoids love at all costs, he’s convinced that relationships are dead. His sister Sherry a therapist, does her best to get through to him to no avail. Charlie seems set in his ways until his best friends challenge him to date one woman for a month, certain he won’t be able to avoid falling for her. Believing he’s immune to love, Charlie accepts unaware he’s about to meet Eva. At first Charlie and Eva are on the same page, agreeing to a casual affair. However, Charlie soon begins to question his stance on love and whether he may actually want more than just a one night stand.

The Perfect Match hits theaters this Friday March 11th and stars Terrence Jenkins as Charlie and Cassie Ventura as Eva. Executive produced by Queen Latifah, the film also stars Paula Patton, Lauren London, Dascha Polanco, Donald Faison, and Robert Christopher Riley.

Ahead of the movies release we decided to ask ourselves, “What makes someone your perfect match?”. Now perfection is an unachievable ideal, because no one is without their flaws. There is no one size fits all equation and your perfect match is exactly that, your match; it is unique to you. However, there still are principles we can all use, as a guideline in determining whether we’ve found our match.

127-TPM_Day9-00005

After feedback from members of both sexes we have established four stages that can help you determine if your significant other is the pea to complete your pod. These are Chemistry, Compatibility, Communication, and Comfort.

Chemistry

This is something that cannot be faked. We all know what it feels like to really vibe with someone. You get butterflies in your stomach whether you’re thinking about or with that person. Your conversations flow, you make each other laugh, you have a smile plastered on your face for hours after seeing or even speaking to them. Now if you’ve made your way to the bedroom, being sexually intimate can either deepen your connection or totally derail your chemistry. It’s important to keep in mind though that it may take a little effort to become in sync, but as long as you are both willing don’t let it deter you, because what matters is that you want to tear their clothes off.

164-TMP_D19-144

Compatibility

As you get to know your significant other you’ll start to see whether or not you’re compatible. This entails discerning how this person fits into your life. Do you share similar interests and tastes? If not, they should at least be making an effort to take part in the things you enjoy. Do they get along with your family and friends, those closest to you? You’ll begin to notice their quirks and habits. If at this point you aren’t completely repulsed and looking for a way out, then you may have found your match.

099-TPM_Day11-645

Communication

Communication is an important part of life and crucial in determining whether your partner is the one for you. It involves building trust, having a mutual respect for each other, and being willing to listen to what your partner has to say. It also isn’t limited to verbal communication. Body language and intimacy also play in a role in establishing excellent communication between you and your partner. Understanding each others love language and making an effort to be mindful of how we receive and give love is also vital.

014-TPM_D20-103

Comfort

Over a period of time if the chemistry doesn’t fade plus you and your mate are in sync there comes a level openness and vulnerability. Everyone has let their guard down and there’s a steady stream of support, communication, understanding, and acceptance. Comfort is getting to be unapologetically you without fear of judgement. When you’ve reached this state you’ll know without a doubt you’ve found your perfect match.

045-TPM_Day10-00333

We hope this helps those that are in search or just happen to fall upon that ‘Perfect Match.’

And…don’t forget to check out the movie! It’s definitely a MUST SEE!

Diddy’s New Fragrance Ad With Cassie Banned For Being To Racy.

Instagram/iamdiddy
Instagram/iamdiddy

Diddy-Cassie “Banned” 3AM Fragrance Ad is causing quite the ruckus! Diddy almost had to delay the launch of his new fragrance, ‘3AM,’ because the ad he shot for it was too racy to be played inside retail giant, Macy’s.

diddy-cassie-3am

According to the New York Post, whom has seen the ad said:

“it features simulated sex between Diddy and his 28-year girlfriend Cassie. At one point a naked Cassie straddles Diddy, and at another Diddy thrusts between her open legs.”

“The full-length version includes such provocative images that retailers were concerned about young customers seeing [them],” an insider told the Post.

Macy’s demanded Diddy recut/re-do the ad for the launch, which pretty much almost delayed the release. In good ole’ Diddy fashion, he also tried to get the uncut ad on TV, but the networks was not having it.

Originally, Diddy was going to shoot the ad with an actress of some sort…but it looks like the sexual chemistry wasn’t there, and he instead decided to use GF Cassie as his leading lady.

Check out the visual ad below:

 

The ‘3AM’ fragrance is on sale right now.

Thoughts?
