Ryan Leslie Forced to Give Up Music Rights


Back in 2011 music producer Ryan Leslie was sued by a man in Germany after Ryan failed to pay a promised $1 million reward for the return of his stolen laptop [click here if you missed that].

It's time to pay up...

Ryan Leslie initially refused to pay the reward after the laptop was returned to him wiped clean of the unreleased music he was hoping to retrieve.

After the courts ordered Ryan to pay up he immediately filed for bankruptcy, but his plan may have backfired.

Earlier this month Armin Augstein was awarded the rights and royalty payments from Ryan Leslie's entire catalogue which includes music from Cassie, Mary J. Blige, Usher, Ne-Yo, The Game, New Edition, Danity Kane, Fabolous, Britney Spears and many others.

Armin will retain the rights until the $538k debt is paid in full.

Wayment, what!?

Who made this deal? Why did he promise money he didn't have? How did he lose the laptop? Who wiped the laptop? Why is this story so strange?

I have a friend who graduated from Yale and he's got no sense either. Ryan is allegedly a Harvard man but these degrees seem like they don't prepare people of color for real life.

But for real-real, why does this story have so many weird twists?

This story is so ridiculous. He could have just kept the finder's fee at the initial $20K and went on with his life. Instead, his ego indebted him.

Why a mili? Anyway before he promised anything, he should've first made sure he still had his files. Wow, that's a lot of f'ing money for a kidnapped laptop.
