Rapper/singer Scribes keeps consistent, striving for “The Ceiling” on his West Coast grind. Tacoma’s Leezy Soprano lends bars and heft to the track. Grab it here if you’re digging it.
Seattle ex-pat and now Los Angeles resident Scribes released his new EP yesterday, SeaCal Drive. Dude has teased the record with a grip of lead-up material which you can find covered elsewhere on this blog. Best to just grab the download for free, though, and check the behind-the-scenes video below.
Scribes will undoubtedly obtain the Kinda Like Drake label as more ears track his music. It’s important to remember that dude was doing his thing before So Far Gone dropped, so yeah…smoke that in your pipe. Here he updates the whole “back seat of my Jeep, let’s swing an episode” thing fairly well. Captain Midnite on the beat.
All play no work for the homie Scribes in his new clip, “Hop On The Ride,” directed by Harry Clean of Detooz Films.
Seattle multimedia artist Mike Folden recently did a nice video profile on Scribes. I’ve never met dude, but he comes across as a thoughtful, intensely focused artist. Peep that above and download his latest full-length, What Was Lost, for free here. Scribes gets a great live look on June 10 when he opens for Pharoahe Monch at The Crocodile.
