Don’t let the seemingly indifferent title of Vibes’ latest feature fool you; despite dealing with life’s uncertainties, I Guess…, is all about conviction and commitment to his art. Originally left on the cutting-room floor during the sessions for his Bay Parkway mixtape, and making its world premiere right here in the Booth, this reflective joint finds VANS Beats flipping a heartfelt soul sample as the Jersey native (and exclusive freestyle series contributor) spits about the ups and downs of the grind. While he admits that the journey’s been harder on him than he’s let on, he ultimately takes a philosophical outlook, confident that one day he’ll look back on his current grind with pride: “The memoirs of a dreamer that’s pursuin’ art / [If] I’m shinin’ that’s because I made it through the dark.” Is it really just a matter of time before Vibes makes it? I’ll let you, the readers, debate that one. In any case, those digging this unreleased joint will want to keep it locked you-know-where for all the latest from this driven up-and-comer.
