Producer/songwriter Ryan Leslie released his 25 minute documentary today entitled, Black Mozart. The documentary follows R. Les' journey as he crafted his forthcoming album of the same name. The footage takes place in Vienna, Austria where Leslie took two days to record his LP. Also present in the short film are producers Cardiak and Cadenza, along with Ryan's crew. Check out the documentary after the jump and let us know if you'll be purchasing the album or not. "Black Mozart starts at the moment that I walk out of the courthouse. I wrote the entire album in the two days following the verdict, so the album is written and will be recorded in layers with the strings, horns and potentially a choir in the royal conservatory in Vienna, Austria, one of the homes of some of the most classical music ever written."
