Bryson Tiller is back in mixtape mode.
On Halloween, the R&B crooner surprised fans by dropping Killer Instinct 2:The Nightmare Before. The 13-track sequel arrives a decade after his original mixtape and finds Bryson back in his bag as he takes on hits from today and the past including 112’s “Dance With Me” (“Money Dance”), complete with an intro from Diddy.
He also flips Brent Faiyaz’s “Gravity,” NBA YoungBoy’s “Lil Top” (“On Top”), Normani’s “Wild Side” (“Are You Listening”), and Chris Brown’s “Heat” (“Keep It Simple”).
The project opens with Bryson having a conversation with himself in the future. “I feel like you forgot how important it is to have fun in this shit…Bring that Killer Instinct back. We need that hungry Tiller,” the future Bryson tells the past, who responds, “Yo bro, I kinda lost my way there a little bit.”
Bryson is now gearing up for his long-awaited album Serenity, the follow-up to last year’s Anniversary. He can also be heard alongside Lil Durk on “Loyal to a Fault” off Big Sean’s new EP What You Expect.
