Earlier this week Washington DC-hailing R&B star Ryan Leslie announced the Black Mozart EP and documentary, his way of responding to the recent loss of a million-dollar lawsuit, and here’s a video teaser for the project, expected to arrive some time in early 2013.
The short clip, shot in black and white, shows footage of the former Harvard graduate leaving the Manhattan federal courthouse where he lost his laptop reward lawsuit to a German businessman. Leslie looks perfectly composed, but in the background, news reporters discuss him and his music, recalling the sudden burst of media attention that has the singer and producer in recent weeks. Meanwhile, in keeping with Black Mozart‘s title and themes, the gentle tones of a classical piano play away as musical accompaniment, setting the scene for the follow-up to Les Is More.
