Miguel Drops Surprise EP, ‘nwa.hollywooddreams.coffee’

blame it on Meka December 19, 2014

I literally said this a couple of days ago: artists releasing surprise projects is the thing to do now, and you can credit (or blame?) Beyoncé for kick-starting the trend. While some are great (D’Angelo, J. Cole), many-many-many-many-many- others are almost certainly not welcome. Fortunately Miguel falls into the former category, as he’s dropped a quickstrike EP to tide fans over for the time being until he releases his anticipated third album. Stream and download the three-track freelease below.

    hollywooddreams has the same guitar riff as Kid Cudi’s Ghost

    • tk

      totally cudi used to make some fire shit

  • leutrim

    Beyonce may have made it trendy, but Curren$y was dropping random mixtapes and EPs since 2012

    • shake

      That’s exactly what he said.

    • 100% Real

      Real shit and i never thought about it because curren$y did it so much i was used to it

      • leutrim

    Second time I seen u guys use the term quick strike. That’s a head term. It’s time for the new releases posts. Sneakers are hip hop.

      ^lol wut?

      • NYCityKid

        Lol, left field shit.

        • shake

          head term? what kind of ratchets are you dealing with?

          • NYCityKid

            Lol. What? I meant sneaker head. I’m assuming that’s where u got the term quick strike from. Let’s get a post on them J’s bruh.

            I thought he was referencing the Battle of Haditha

          • NYCityKid

            Bro are you guys ever going to do a dope house in NY again? It’s long over due. I came to that event ya’ll had a minute ago and met the both of u. I think it was on bond st. or somewhere around there. It would be cool to meet some of these dopehouse fanatics in person so we can chop it up.

            really shake?

          • NYCityKid

            So since you didn’t respond. I’ll just take that as a no.

          • shake

            Or I’m busy, depends who you ask I guess. Not sure about the next NYC event. We’re comfortable in LA for now.

          • NYCityKid

            It’s cool man. Thanks for responding. I would think u guys have writers out here or made a few moves back and forth but that’s wassup on the LA move, respect. I know you still got love for NY and the city would definitely appreciate it if or whenever ya’ll do do something out here.

          • shake

            Mek actually lives in NY, and I live in Vegas. We just have a relationship with the West Coast. A party or event in NYC will happen in 2015. It’s gotta.

          • NYCityKid

            Great news

    What an amazing month for good music! Started with Wu-Tang. Followed by Ghostface Killah & J. Cole. Then D’Angelo pulls a semi-Beyonce. Wale announces Festivus mixtape. Fashion & Alchemist tape. Now….Miguel. Gotdamn!

    • SonOfSAM

      I was saying the same thing yesterday. December has been amazing for music.

    • Chruth

      PRHYME…

      • 1.6180339

  • JEM

    The best relatively new R&B singer back at it again!!

    • Cory

      Pretty sure that’s Frank Ocean your talking about, Miguel nice though

      • JEM

        Frank Ocean too. They both need to get back at it again.

      • wat

        They’re tied for me. They brought back actual artistry to R&B.

  • kingcolewassup

    coffee is tha shit!

  • BJenks

    I agree about Spitta, so it’s nothing too new to me. Also, I know EPs are meant to be short, but I feel that just because you drop a couple of songs you had, does not mean it should be considered a “surprise project”, you just dropped a couple of joints. I feel that if it’s not something that could have garnered some considerable hype and dropped as a regular album, then you’re just trying to hop on the bandwagon, poorly. Not directed to this project, but I was just thinking in general.

    • hiiipower

      dont get caught up in the labeling…just enjoy the music.

  • $$$

    Soundcloud needs to add a fucking “download entire playlist” feature already. Bullshit

  • Jay Daniels

    I have a feeling this is just a preview. That coffee song is definitely cut short.

  • Sam N

    that hollywooddreams samples Cudder something fierce
