The Singer: Ryan Leslie

His Rap Resume: Earlier this year, R Les dropped “Joan of Arc,” one of the first offerings from his third album, Les Is More, and it surprisingly featured him rapping his verses and singing the chorus.

Why He Should Stop Trying To Rap Immediately: We’ll give props where they’re due: The singer/producer didn’t sound awful on “Joan of Arc.” In fact, if we didn’t know he was a singer, he wouldn’t be any worse than half the rappers out there who have deals. But since we do know him as a singer, we can’t let this slide. More singing and less rapping on your new album, Ryan!
