Ryan Leslie is a Harvard grad, music producer, singer/rapper and entrepreneur. We know he discovered Cassie and that his laptop (with his entire music catalog) was once stolen, but there's a lot more to his story. He has such an inspiring message and recently sat down with the Combat Jack show (get into this podcast) to talk about his path to success.
