Bryson Tiller & Nike Partner To Rebuild A Basketball Court In Louisville

The hometown hero, Bryson Tiller is back. Today the Louisville native artist is back, giving back to his hometown in a rather unique way. Coming off his very first #1 album, today the word comes down that Mr. Tiller partnered with Nike to rebuild a basketball court in his hometown.

Taking to Instagram recently, Bryson spoke about his charitable move, stating: “a few years ago while working on Trapsoul, i was flying back home to Louisville to visit my family. When i landed, i saw a poster of the city and it was captioned “It’s Possible Here” and i just stood there in awe like wow…. it really IS possible here. it’s possible to make it out of this city even though people would always tell me it wasn’t. So i made it a goal of mine to redo a court in the area i grew up in, teamed up with Nike to make it official, and now it’s finally FINISHED!!. Bryson and Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer will visit the refurbished Wyandotte Park court, and will also kick off a three hour basketball skills clinic for the kids from the community.
