Bryson Tiller gets candid about mental health. Earlier today (May 7), Tiller used his Twitter account to reveal that he'd been battling depression before he recorded his sophomore LP, True to Self.
Responding to a Twitter user who spotlighted tweets criticizing Tiller, the Louisville, Ky.-bred crooner offered up a window into his mental state leading up to the recording of True to Self. The user said fans' reaction to Tiller's Trapsoul follow up album made the singer depressed. Tiller responds by saying that he was afflicted with the condition way before he even recorded the project.
"1. i was depressed before i made that album and you can hear it in the music," Tiller wrote, framing his tweet as a list. "2. statistically, we didn’t do that great because of it.. and 3. depression ended in 2017 and i been workin hard ever since. stay tuned."
In another interesting note, Tiller also admits True to Self wasn't his best work. When one user said he fell off, Tiller responded casually, saying "it happens" and that he'd figure it out. Within that same tweet, he asks the Twitter user if he makes beats, and go on to discuss possibly working together.
