A year and a half ago, Bryson Tiller was sleeping in his car and working two jobs to support himself and his daughter. Now, his name has lit up the marquee of New York City’s Webster Hall as part of his 36-city Trapsoul tour to promote his namesake debut album. On an unseasonably warm Monday evening, Pen Griffey took the stage, clad in all black attire and his signature baseball cap. The Louisville native began his set with “Differences”, the intro to his RCA Records debut. The 23-year-old singer then followed with such standouts as “For However Long” and “Exchange”. After each song, a different color backdrop accompanied Tiller’s performance, which included a live band, a noticeable difference from previous shows. When he delivered the Sylvester Stallone-cosigned “Rambo”, the stage was painted neo green, dismissing the previous fire engine red hue. Tiller ended the night with the number “Right My Wrongs”. Backed by an illuminated sign that read “TRAPSOUL”, he celebrated his full circle moment before launching into “Don’t”, the Dope Boi produced love note that propelled him from internet favorite to R&B star. Tiller has an incredible stage presence and a bright future ahead of him. A source close to rapper Kanye West confirmed that the rapper/designer will be hitting stages to promote his latest release “The Life Of Pablo”. Dates may be revealed within the next month. Earlier this month, West hosted a ticketed event at New York’s Madison Square Garden for a simultaneous Yeezy Season 3 fashion show and TLOP listening, which was attended by 20,000 people. Sources have previously reported that West was pondering several release strategies with Def Jam and Universal Music Group for “Pablo” as well as a possible physical version. West also announced via Twitter that another album is due this summer. He recently previewed a new track at Los Angeles’ 1OAK Club, where he played the braggadocious cut “Saint Pablo (Closest Thing to Einstein)”, a track not included on the Tidel version of “Pablo”. He will also headline the Governor’s Ball Music Festival at Randall’s Island Park in New York City June 3-5, his only festival appearance in the U.S. this summer. Music mogul LA Reid brought along special guest Andre 3000 to his recent Kidd Kaddick Morning Show interview to promote his memoir “Sing To Me”. The Outkast member, known for keeping a low profile, hung out with Reid and shouted out several artist on his radar. Those artist being Kid Cudi, Young Thug and Future. He also gushed over his 18-year-old son, who may have inherited his father’s gift. He added that he told his son to release new music without revealing who his father is. Reid also praised Andre, calling him one of his favorites. Andre, who appears on the ABC crime drama “American Crime”, also weighed in on the art of freestyling and stated that he may need social media one day. Seattle bred rap duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis released a visual for the single “Kevin” before the release of their sophomore effort “The Unruly Mess I’ve Made”. The black and white clip, directed by Jason Koenig and Lewis, accompanies the tribute track to Macklemore’s late rapper friend Kevin. According to MTV, the MC recalled his friend’s passing of an overdose in a January 2014 interview with the cable station. The follow up to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’s Grammy winning debut “The Heist” includes previous releases “Downtown”, and “Buckshot”.
