Ryan Leslie is known for being a legend in the music industry as a Grammy nominated producer, singer and rapper. He's had hit records of his own and has worked with some of the biggest names in music history.

His genius reaches far past music. He scored a perfect score on his S.A.T. at fourteen and went on to graduate from Harvard University. He has always been ahead of his time.

He shocked the music industry in 2012 when he took his music off of streaming services and as a result, he made more money. Now he is focused on his latest venture called Super Phone, which is a text message data management system that he expects will change the way we communicate with each other.

His goal is to be the next tech giant and change the world in the process. On episode 64 , Ryan discusses all of the aforementioned topics and much more, for one of our most broad-ranging conversations ever.
