Ryan Leslie Cries On Stage While Discussing $1,000,000 Court Ruling [VIDEO]


Ryan Leslie got emotional on stage at the Long Island University homecoming concert when discussing his court case. 

When talking about his ordeal and landing on the front of the New York Post with the tag “Rap Weasel” on the cover, he got choked up. “And yesterday (and the reason why I’m on the front page of the news today) everyone thought I was just a cheapskate or something like that – a jury of my peers,” said Ryan.

“Eight people, they looked me in my face and told me I had to pay this man $1MM for music I never got back.” He went on to say that the $1,000,000 reward is still on the table for anyone that can return his music and then dramatically lit the cover of the Post on fire.

  • I hate that this man had to go through this… clearly, the ‘Good Samaritan’ was only in this for the reward. My hunch is, he knows where that music is, and we’ll be hearing it under another label. I’m certain R Les will make waaaaaaay more than $1M in future album sales.

      I like Ryan Leslie, but whether the Good Samaritan was in it or the reward or not, he found it. Therefore he should pay up. Stand by his word. Next time time he should keep better accountability for his stuff. Why waste another mill trying to get music back?Just make more and better music.

      • smh

        Your so right

  • What a d-bag. Put it up, because of YOUR own egotistical mouth you are under court order to pay up, YOUR fault. Now be a man of YOUR word and pay up. Unless, of course, YOUR good word means nothing.

      yeah but i think the man who returned it had something to do with it being stolen…it was hacked into..i think someone he knew stolen then waited for a ransom..stupidly, RLES should’ve said 10k not 1mill or said conditions upon the following..i feel bad for him…talented dude..but he got it..he makes music for many artists..he’ll be alright

  • ajustinmoore

    Dummy. He should have chosen his words more wisely. He asked for the LAPTOP–not the MUSIC.
