Last week, Bryson Tiller surprised everyone by dropping his sophomore project, True to Self, a month earlier than expected. While the jury's still out for some on how it compares to 2015's Trapsoul, Tiller's already moving at full steam, even announcing a tour with Metro Boomin that kicks off in August.
There's still one question that's on everyone's minds: "why did Bryson drop the project sooner than he announced?" In a new interview with Billboard, he explained the early release.
“I’ve been ready to get the music to the fans as soon as possible, so why not?,” Tiller said simple and plain. He did clarify that it wasn't his plan, though. "I can’t take the credit for that. It was just my manager; it was his plan [to] drop it a month early." He even said that he "forgot" it was due to drop early, which sounds crazy.
For those wondering, Tiller clears up a few things: not only is the voice recording of the girl on True to Self's "Rain (Interlude)" the same as Trapsoul's "Overtime," but you would be right in assuming that True to Self is the continuation of the story he brought to light on Trapsoul.
