Bryson Tiller, Bryson Tiller, Bryson Tiller! I had to say it three times so it sinks into your head. I suggest all bandwagon riders get on board now before there is no room. Bryson Tiller is quickly becoming one of the artists to watch in 2015. His singles "Don't" and 'Sorry not sorry" are doing crazy numbers on both SoundCloud and YouTube. I got familiar with him when I was browsing through "2dopeboyz", I was like "damn this dude got that it Factor ;So I did a little more research and every record I heard was dope. When there is an artist I respect my goal is to sit down with them and pick their brain...so here we are. I sat down with the Kentucky native to find out how it all started and where he see's his career going.
