This year has been a pretty solid one for Tyler, the Creator. With his latest full length Igor, he proved he could step outside traditional hip hop and spread his wings creatively. Now before the year draws to a close, Tyler has dropped two new songs “BEST INTEREST” and “GROUP B,” and they’re both on another level.
The video of Tyler cruising some waterway opens with the admission that the song was a rough draft that didn’t make it on to Igor. The falsetto vocals and the chill opening get the song bumping before Tyler comes in with a more direct vocal rhyme style. The beat and the stride here are so catchy that even the backing vocals won’t get the song out of your head.
“GROUP B” has a more direct approach. Straight rap here, Tyler has more of a free flow style in a way that comes across as organic. The sample and the beat are definite fire, while the rhymes flow above. The track will also stay with you, proving that Tyler, the Creator is just on another level.
Both tracks can be streamed on all platforms or purchased in all digital music stores. Tyler, the Creator is on tour starting December 28 at Wildlands Festival in Brisbane, Australia until July 04 at Longitude Festival in Dublin, Ireland. His complete tour schedule is available here.
