Ryan Leslie definitely knows how to “Start It Up” when it comes to his new tour
Last night, August 20th, Ryan Leslie kicked off the New York leg of his Black Mozart Tour, putting on a show at the Bowery Ballroom on Delancey Street in New York City. The sold out performance was one for the ages. Not only did Ryan world premiere his newest music video for his latest single “New New,” but he also treated fans to throwbacks such as “Gibberish” and “Fly Together.” He even sang his popular hit “Addiction,” but that performance was not complete without having Fabolous come out and perform alongside him!
That’s right! Fabolous came out and performed “Addiction” with Ryan along with his live band. Fabolous also performed “You Be Killin Em,” his 2010 hit that was produced by Ryan and ended up becoming a staple tagline in 21st century pop culture.
The show didn’t end after Fabolous performed. It got better… G-Unit then came out! Lloyd Banks, Tony Yayo, and Young Buck all came on stage to perform “Start It Up” as you can guess the crowd went crazy!
Other celebs in attendance included Emily B., Damon Dash, Mike Zombie (Drake‘s artist) and Lyndsey Scott (Victoria’s Secret Angel).
