His debut mixtape is a glorious swirl of rap and breezy R&B
Just as G-funk made the dance floor safe for rap fans in the ‘90s, Louisville’s Bryson Tiller is the trap-soul ambassador, opening the treacherous style to R&B fans. The slow-rolling beats frame his cascading voice perfectly on "Don't" and "Been That Way". Tiller isn’t confined to lover-man status; he lays down hot bars on “502 Come Up” and “Rambo”, showing the turn-up is real. Keep your precious suits and silks in storage; this is sexy, grimy music. Let the trap-soul era begin.
