http://www.ascap.com/expo Ryan Leslie has worn many hats throughout his 20 years in music - chart-topping songwriter, trusted producer, Grammy-nominated recording artist, forward-thinking entrepreneur...the list goes on.

Should I shoot for a major label, or go the independent route? Should I compromise my standards for the sake of a hit? In the unique Black Mozart: Master Session with Ryan Leslie at the 2017 "I Create Music" EXPO, attendees got a rare glimpse into the evolution of Leslie’s art and career. In this clip, Leslie discusses his first beat placement with Beyoncé.
