There are a lot of musicians and entertainers in the world that actually do some good for the world and more importantly the community they come from but it hardly ever gets publicized. Kentucky R&B singer/rapper Bryson Tiller just restored a little hope in his city of Louisville by teaming up with Nike and renovating one of his hometowns basketball courts. The unveiling of the new court happened Wednesday morning.
The court was renovated with a red coating at both ends of the outside courts and a green coated court in the middle that has the memorable number 502 in the center which is the city’s area code. Alongside the outside of the court there is a saying that reads “It’s Possible Here.” That is a saying that Bryson says he sees often when he flies back into Louisville.
“I remember my first time seeing it,” Tiller says. “I was working on my debut album, and I just thought, ‘Wow, it is possible here.’ Everybody always thinks you have to move out of the city and go where the music industry is, but it’s possible in Louisville, and it’s possible anywhere. You just have to believe.”
In other news, the Kentucky musician capped off the night with a sold out performance in his hometown for his Set it Off tour. Not to mention Tiller just scored his first No. 1 album on the Billboard charts with his sophomore offer True to Self
