(AllHipHop News) Ryan Leslie is attempting to put artist in more control of their careers by connecting them to fans more directly. On July 15th, Ryan Leslie will hold a live Q&A session with aspiring artists, music executives and to explain Disruptive Multimedia.
The new platform is designed to give artists’ fans direct access to their favorite artist as well as digitally distribute their music while retaining a large portion of the sales with a three day turnaround on receiving funds. At the Q+A, being held at AlleyNYC, Leslie will address his reasoning for crowdsourcing his next album, other technology platforms that can help and more.
Kanye West recently touted Leslie’s creative aptitude in regard to pushing music at the “Technology, Culture and Consumer Adoption: Learning To Read The Cultural Landscape” seminar at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity:
I think it is ridiculous giving any celebrity a creative director role of anything. There is only like three guys who I think could work like that, and that’s Ryan Leslie, me and Will.I.Am, because we care about it. We’re inside of it.
Tickets to the event will be limited to 100 and can be purchased here.
