Video: Ryan Leslie "Beautiful Lie" In Studio + Video Treatment
An update from the multi-talented Ryan Leslie who is about to change that tagline to ‘omni-talented’ by attempting the musical high dive: putting out a rap album (Les is More–threatening to materialize for a minute and a half now). Considering that his creative process basically involves himself and a homeboy alone in a studio with their dreams (delusions?) of grandeur, this is probably the most compelling behind-the-scenes, messin-about-in-the-studio vid I’ve seen yet. And that is because dude makes some undeniably great music and his own energy translates directly to the listener. I’m not 100% sure whether the video treatment he is laying out will ever make it to the HD stage, or how the whole rap album thing will work out. But I’m damn sure I will be watching while he climbs the ladder.
