Craig Mitch Chats To Ryan Leslie

Craig Mitch Ryan Leslie

I recently caught up with the self proclaimed “Black Mozart” Ryan Leslie for a chat on behalf of Flavour Mag. Ryan is an interesting character to say the least. He graduated from Harvard University and when you meet him you can see why.

He asked to see some of my work before we kicked off the chat and when I showed him the ASAP Rocky interview which notched up 30k hits he was rearing to go. He’s so hands on he recommended what audio to use and how the camera should be filmed.

We spoke about his Renegade fan base, Fabolous and his fashion taste. Check the interview after the jump…

Drake’s “Would You Like A Tour” stopped by Paris recently and during the show he brought out his friend/booty call Rihanna for a duet of their hit single “Take Care“.

It’s hard to keep up with bad Gal Ri Ri. One minute she’s with Chris Brown, the next she’s with Drake, then it just goes round and round again. Either way the two put in a strong improvised performance, then Rihanna performed her strip club anthem “Pour It Up

It seemed like Chris Brown was laying low towards the end of 2013 after getting into even more trouble with the law, but he’s back for 2014 with brand new material and his yet to be released 5th studio album “X” finally has a release date, May 5th.

A new song has found its way onto the web featuring his on-and-off lover Rihanna and Mr “too paid to put work in” Wiz Khalifa. Despite on the drama that comes his way, one thing is for sure, Breezy makes great music.

Last Sunday I hosted yet another Acoustic Afternoon at Box Park and it was eventful to say the least. There were 5 acts on the bill including Twinnie, Fleur, Rashard, La La Land and beat boxer Insenti-T (who was supposed to perform but couldn’t make it because he was stuck in Dubai some how).

This meant that I had to do a lot improvisation on the spot to maintain the crowds attention which involved a poem about why I was late entitled “Train” and the formation of a band on the spot to fill Insenti-T’s missing slot. It all went well in the end much to the audiences delight and all acts delivered stella performances.

Yeezus lends his vocals for a very rare remix of Beyonce’s club anthem “Drunk In Love“. Kanye does his thing on this remix in a very explicit way. Rumours are that they have shot a visual for this remix which bound to drop any day now.

Surfbooaaaard!!!

We saw Shakira and Beyonce team up a few years back for “Beautiful Liar” but now the Colombian superstar has decided to turn to the ratchet side and team up with Bad Gal RiRi for her latest single “Can’t Remember To Forget You“.

Shakira has been on a hiatus playing mother and wife to Barcelona footballer Pique but she’s back with a bang in this exotically aesthetic visual.
