Tyler explained the releases on Twitter. The YouTube caption for “BEST INTEREST” reads:

“a song that i never got to fully finish from IGOR sessions. didnt want it to sit on a hard drive. filmed with no music, with hopes that it would sync up, a success!”

The “BEST INTEREST” video features Tyler paddling through an unnamed swamp. He explained the impromptu video shoot on Twitter. Given IGOR‘s romantic themes, the track doesn’t sound far out of place. “GROUP B” is a more conventional rap track. Tyler effortlessly leans into the pocket of a looped sample, referencing everything from Murray’s Pomade to climate change activist Greta Thunberg.
