Who He Is: Ryan Leslie, or R-Les, as he likes to be called, is best known right now for producing Cassie's summer of 2006 hit "Me & You." But he's so much more than that: he's a singer and songwriter who enrolled at Harvard University in the fall of 1994 at 15 years old and graduated with a degree in Government and Economics at the age of 19.

What's Next for Him: His self-titled debut album's one of those project's that's been hit with delay after delay for about two years. But the project is finally set to hit stores on Feb. 10.

Check Out: Ryan's two most recent singles, "Diamond Girl" and "How It Was Supposed To Be," plus an interview he gave to the About R&B site back in 2006.
