As you probably know Kendrick Lamar’s Backseat Freestyle hosts the emcee wildin’ out in the back of the whip. Like Kendrick, Scribes too is going HAM in the Backseat (New Ride), only instead of being with his boys, he is with a special lady. Captain Midnite lives up to his name, cooking up a beat that, with a shrouded synth base drips a late night vibe. Setting off the sultry cut, Scribes, with his silky, ear-catching vocals, spins a tale of a late night, um, “meeting” with a girl; oh by the way (as if you didn’t already know) the meeting takes place in the back of the car. Backseat (New Ride) is slated for inclusion on Scribes’ upcoming SeaCal Drive EP.
