Urban Gentleman Ryan Leslie’s ESSENCE Photo Shoot

Ryan Leslie is quite a dynamic musician. I could even go as far as to say that he’s what many Men of Morehouse and Morehouse Men would call a Renaissance Man, I’d say he’s atleast a Renaissance man of music. As essence.com wrote, “He plays [several] instruments, composes music, writes lyrics, produces melodies and sings songs of love. Leslie is a man’s man—a real artiste. In an exclusive photo shoot, essence.com asked Leslie to channel the Jazz Age and the swagger of John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Frank Sinatra. We captured the creative, romantic and visionary artist inside. Experience Ryan Leslie, the Music Man.”
