Bryson Tiller announced an event he’ll be hosting today in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky in an effort to give back.
He posted a pic on IG of him standing in a basketball court with the caption that read in part “I made it a goal of mine to redo a court in the area i grew up in, teamed up with Nike to make it official, and now it’s finally FINISHED!! Come to Wyandotte Park tomorrow at 9:30am, i’ll be there!!”
The celebration included plans to hold basketball clinics for the kids in the area and a pop-up show at the Louisville Mercury Ballroom where he’ll be showcasing new music from his number one debut album ‘True to Self.’
a few years ago while working on Trapsoul, i was flying back home to Louisville to visit my family. When i landed, i saw a poster of the city and it was captioned "Its Possible Here" and i just stood there in awe like wow…. it really IS possible here. it's possible to make it out of this city even though people would always tell me it wasn't. So i made it a goal of mine to redo a court in the area i grew up in, teamed up with Nike to make it official, and now it's finally FINISHED!! Come to Wyandotte Park tomorrow at 9:30am, i'll be there!! reminding everyone that it's possible here in Louisville Kentucky.
Bryson will return to the area to cap off his ‘Set It Off Tour’ which kick off in Atlanta in August and making a stop right here in the DFW at the Bomb Factory on August 25.
