Speaking about writing a song for his late friend, Thundercat said: “This song is about Mac… when he passed it shook the ground for the artist community. Ty’s a strong dude and when he heard the song he knew exactly what it should be. I was there when he recorded it. We talked about what it was, and he did what he felt was right to it, and I love what he did.”

"Fair Chance" follows It Is What It Is singles "Black Qualls" and "Dragonball Durag," the latter of which came with a comedic video featuring HAIM, Kali Uchis, and Quinta Brunson. It Is What It Is is due on April 3, via Brainfeeder.
