Ok at first glance you may think it is Drake, but no, its the return of Ryan Leslie. Now you may be saying a commercial R&B act, why is this showing up on here? Ryan Leslie has been on the scene and in the background for a minute, producing hits for a few of your favourite hardcore MC’s (Fabolous, Llloyd Banks, Booba etc.) but the fact of the matter is, the man is a genius. While in his teens he managed to be accepted into Harvard, Standford and Yale. And some folks still dont think the hip hop community is educated (smh). But on the real, watching him work and craft up banging hits is inspiring and he is clearly a producer to be respected.

Make you mine

What originally started off as a grungy hip hop instrumental quickly morphed into a melodic and dynamic RnB collaboration . Zion called me randomly from the train to explain that he was halfway to my place with his guitar and suitcase in tow; two things he’s hardly without. As we set down and talked about our musical past, different interests in music and where we want to take our respective styles, we somehow concocted Make You Mine from a few lyrics he had already started. The kid’s vocals are always soft yet extremely dynamic and unmistakable which match perfect with my gritty productions.
