Last night, Ryan Leslie shed some tears at a concert after a jury ordered him to pay the $1 million he promised to the German man who recovered his laptop. Unfortunately, the laptop had all of his music swiped off it.

When Ryan Leslie lost his laptop in Germany a year ago, he offered a $1 million reward to anyone who found it. RLes was desperate to get it back because it featured songs from his ‘Les Is More’ album, which he released this past July. No sooner had he made that offer, a German man made his claim after returning it to police (he found it while walking his dog). Joyous that he was about to live a life of luxury, Armin Augstein was doing cartwheels. After all, I can imagine that finding that laptop was like finding a winning lottery ticket. Despite the German consistently emailing RLes, those emails went completely ignored and now the man has filed a lawsuit in the Manhattan federal court.
It will be interesting to see how he fights his way out of this one because there is multiple evidence showing that RLes offered the $1 million reward (interviews, youtube, twitter, facebook and vice versa). This is such a downright cheek! I hope his balls grow a conscience and he pays the man the money he is rightfully owned. While $1 million is life changing money, you don’t make those type of promises only to unfairly rescind it. And if he didn’t have that type of money, why make the offer? I’m sure he has it. I just don’t think he wants to pay it. The man returned the laptop! So pay up Ryan!
Ryan Leslie knocks back the haters in his new song ‘Glory’. The accompanying music video premiered today on the songwriter’s official youtube channel. The black and white clip presents a story about his positive journey as a producer, songwriter and overall artist. He acknowledges he may not have enjoyed a top ten hit (at least his own), but despite being an underrrated act, he still gets the female adulation, the model chicks and the free drinks.
I told his crush Denise from ryanleslieweb.net that I was not really excited about his new album ‘Les Is More’ because he has turned to rapping. It seems he is aware that people are clowning his rapping and addresses that in the song! Well damn, he sure did tell me! Check out the video below!
Ryan Leslie premiered yet another new track from his upcoming new album ‘Les Is More’ (out on July 4th). The track, which he performed live in San Francisco is titled ‘Breathe’ and it features UK singer Mr Hudson. The midtempo cut consists of a multi-layered beat and pulsating melodies, accented by live instrumentation. It’s a step up from ‘Beautiful Lie’, which he premiered previously but he still needs to cut down on the rapping. Check it out below.
