"Jamba"

Some of Tyler's beatmaking leap forward might come from him more wholeheartedly carrying the Neptunes' torch, who he's long cited as huge influences. Here, the synths, handclaps and vocal samples are a wonky version of Pharrell and Hugo's glory days, a perfect fit for Tyler's rhymes, which here update his old immature tropes with talk of his new success: "Four stories in my home like what the f--k's an apartment?" he asks boastfully.
