In December, Tiller addressed this time period in his life during an interview with Tim Westwood. “I’m my biggest hater and my worst critic, so when I see all these people saying things it’s like I’m agreeing with them,” he said. “All these things just kinda took a toll on me, and not only that, but I went through a lot of crazy things with legal troubles and stuff with old management…I was in a dark, dark place after Trapsoul.”
