December 19, 2017
Bryson Djaun Tiller, known just as Bryson Tiller, is a songwriter, singer, and rapper. In 2011, he kicked off his career when he released a mixtape called Killer Instinct Vol. 1, and received recognition with his single “Don’t”. He originally released “Don’t” on SoundCloud and with it’s success, made it the lead song of his debut album.
From then, he released his very first studio album, Trapsoul with RCA Records, which also includes, “Don’t” in 2015. Trapsoul is a 14 song, 45 minute album that includes mainly hip hop, influences of R&B, and of course some trap.
Tiller’s music can be described as a chill or laid back kind of vibe. He incorporates a mix of slower songs such as “Right My Wrongs” to more upbeat songs like “502 Come Up” and creates a sense of balance through the album.
Along with “Don’t”, songs that are also worth checking out are “Let Em’ Know”, “Exchange”, “Rambo”, “Sorry Not Sorry”, “Been That Way”, and “Overtime”.
Overall, Tiller made his first album a very solid one. With this debut, he creates his own genre and style of music. He gives us a look at his individual sound that isn’t like anything else and is for sure worth the listen.
