502 Come Up

  • This track from Bryson Tiller's debut album Trapsoul finds the singer reflecting on his change of fortunes since he started receiving attention from music industry insiders with his breakout single "Don't." He told The Boombox: "In the song I say 'I woke up in the hills this morning' and it's crazy because I say, 'A year ago I was sleeping in my car,' and to be able to wake up in the hills. Like I literally woke up one morning and was like 'Wow, like this is crazy,' you know what I mean."

    "Sometimes my life is moving so fast that I forget what's going on. I'm just going with the pace or going with the flow. Like I don't really stop and try to pay attention to things for too long. So I got kind of lost in that moment."
