Is Ryan Leslie A Great Rapper?

Admittedly, I slept on Ryan Leslie for a minute. As the dude behind Cassie's mind-boggling "singing" career, I quickly wrote him off as someone as equally devoid of actual talent as his protege. It wasn't until he released his third album, Transitions, that I finally decided to see what all the hoopla was about. While his singing (and dancing) abilities were debatable, it was hard to deny the infectiousness of his tracks. So when he announced his fourth album was in the works, I added it to my list of things to check for. After several delays, Leslie is finally ready to deliver Les Is More to his ever-growing fanbase.
