31 Inspiring Quotes By Bryson Tiller

Bryson Tiller, who is one of the most talented up and coming artists, has brought a new sound called trap soul which is a blend of R&B and rap. He was influenced by Kanye West, Omarion, and Drake. In fact, it was Drake who gave him the thumbs up when he was at a point where he was about to give up on his music dreams. And Timbaland, who was a mutual friend of a friend, had told the young star to quit his day job (Papa John’s and UPS) to pursue his hip hop journey. Thankfully, he listened. Bryson Tiller got a chance to prove himself to Timbaland in Miami, but he passed on him and signed a duo called “They”. He went back home to get his old job back which was a very frustrating period. However, Bryson didn’t settle and he continued to push the envelope as he was not new to hardships (his mother passed away when he was only 4 and he was raised by his grandma).  His hard work and persistence paid off as he even passed on OVO and eventually signed with RCA. Here are 31 inspirational quotes that prove Bryson Tiller’s experiences and upbringing gave him insight, wisdom and a solid path to success.
