Ryan Leslie has just released more dope visuals from his video album Les Is More and they fit with the grandiose tone of the original tracks.
The videos for “Maybachs & Diamonds” and “Swiss Francs“, both of which are shot in stunning black and white, show Leslie, the former Ivy Leaguer, living a life of conspicuous consumption as a successful artist. “Maybachs & Diamonds” adds an extra layer, as the rapper and singer reflects back on priceless romance from lonely private cinemas and chauffeured cars, whilst “Swiss Francs”, a less guilty engagement with rap riches, hired guns et al, is still worth a watch for its affluent imagery.
Les Is More is out now. Buy a digital copy here and check out the videos for “Maybachs & Diamonds” and “Swiss Francs” below:
