Ryan Leslie Announces ‘Black Mozart’ EP

Ryan Leslie is disappointed by the verdict of the $1 million lawsuit that was filed by a German man against him for not paying him the promised reward for the recovered laptop. After breaking down on stage the other day, R Les has decided to record a new EP and documentary, inspired from the incident titled Black Mozart. He tells Vibe:


“Black Mozart starts at the moment that I walk out of the courthouse. I wrote the entire album in the two days following the verdict, so the album is written and will be recorded in layers with the strings, horns and potentially a choir in the royal conservatory in Vienna, Austria, one of the homes of some of the most classical music ever written. I’m doing this as an alternative to rereleasing my album with two new songs. The seven new compositions will be great.”

The documentary will also feature collaboration with producer Cardiak in some form:

“I’m actually working with somebody. I’ve been watching his career for a minute and I’m very excited about what he’s been bringing to the table musically, so I’ll be bringing Cardiak with me to Vienna. Then I’ll also be collaborating with another producer from the United Kingdom named Cadenza.”
