Bryson Tiller debuts the video for his track “Self-Made” that comes off his last album True To Self. Bryson is about to hit Europe on his Set It Off tour alongside SZA starting October 17th – November 30th, after just coming off a New Zealand and Australia tour.
The black and white video, directed by Colin Tilley, features Bryson surfing on the hood of luxury cars, jet skiing in the streets and posted up in the bedroom with some pretty ladies. There’s no shortage of backyard hangouts with the questionable tanning that seems to be happening in the pouring rain.
In a recent interview with GQ, the 24-year-old explains what “Self-Made” really means. “It just sucks whenever you work so hard to do something, and then a lot of people try to take credit for it,” he said. “That’s not only what the song’s about, though. It’s about how sometimes you deserve to go ball and splurge on yourself.”
“I feel self-made,” he continued to the magazine. “There are a lot of people that helped me get to where I am, but I took the initiative to want to better my life whenever I was just working at Papa John’s and UPS. I just said to myself, ‘I’m done with this life. I want a new lifestyle.’”
It was only two years ago that Bryson got his big break. The Kentucky raised singer really hit big with his September 2015 release of Trap Soul that had heavy hitters such as “Don’t” that boasts over 200 million views on YouTube. Bryson even got offered a deal with Drake and his OVO label but turned it down due to his deal RCA Records.
Bryson’s last video release was to the popular song “Insecure” featuring Jazmine Sullivan, that comes from the hit HBO show of the same name created by Issa Rae. That video sees the duo on the set of the series, throwing a party in the classic “Dunes” apartment where Bryson and Jazmine navigate the insecurities of relationships.
