Before leaving the stage, the Brooklyn emcee called Leslie up to perform their song ‘Everything, Everyday, Everywhere’ and hinted at getting back in the studio together. “If ya’ll wanna hear more music from me and Ryan Leslie, make some noise,” he instructed the crowd. “We got more music on the way.”
