Ask me anything
It didn’t take long to get a remix of this track. I figured I’d post this one instead of the original, because R.Les actually drops off a pretty hot verse.

Red Cafe - Fly Together Feat. Rick Ross & Ryan Leslie
The main highlight of this track is Ryan Leslie’s vocals and production. This was so much better when I saw it live.
Ryan Leslie - Glory
R. Les’ new album is really shaping up to be a good one. I can’t wait for it to drop. “Glory” really touches on many of the topics that have plagued Leslie throughout his career. It’s also his way to give a middle finger to all the haters.
Fabolous - Look At Her (Killin’ Em Pt. 2) Feat. Ne-Yo & Ryan Leslie
This is one of those few cases where the sequel is better than the original. One plus is that Fabolous finally let someone else sing on the chorus other than himself. He even recruited Ryan Leslie for the ad-libs on this one, leaving room only for Loso to spit some bars. This is off of Loso’s The S.O.U.L. Tape, which is supposed contains beats solely based off of soul-samples.
Ryan Leslie - Joan of Arc
Anything produced by Ryan Leslie gets an automatic stamp of approval from me. His talents on the mic have been improving lately. I actually prefer his flow to half of the other “emcees” out there. It doesn’t hurt that he can provide his own choruses on his songs. I’m definitely looking forward to Les Is More.
Lloyd Banks - Start It Up (Extended Version) Feat. Kanye West, Fabolous, Swizz Beatz, Ryan Leslie & Pusha T
I don’t know what the point is of releasing so many versions of this song. There’s the original, the UK remix, and now the extended version, with only slight changes in the latter two from the original. I don’t know why they didn’t just keep Pusha on the original. His verse started floating around the internet a few weeks back though, so I guess this was inevitable.
Lloyd Banks - Start It Up (Official UK Remix) Feat. Sway, Giggs, Ryan Leslie, Kanye West & Swizz Beatz
Lloyd Banks grabs UK grime artists Sway and Giggs to replace Fabolous on the UK remix to his single from The Hunger For More 2. It’s not much of a departure from the original version, as all the verses are the same save for the new ones. It’s somewhat of a refreshing change though I guess, and it’s nice to see these UK artists finally get some recognition.
