After hitting us with the first volume of the Art Dealer Chic series, Miguel releases the second installment Art Dealer Chic Vol. 2 exactly a month after the first one. This one also has three songs (tracklist and download down below). Volume 3 of the series is set to drop April 27th, exactly a month from today’s date.
Now I’ve established how talented I think Miguel is before. While everyone was so busy talking about Frank Ocean and The Weeknd last year (and deservedly so), Miguel went completely under-appreciated. I think that is partly due to the fact that he released “All I Want Is You”, the single, back when we were all fiending for a J. Cole verse, so we totally overlooked the song. His album came out in November of 2010, and he dropped four singles that lasted all the way until the beginning of this year, three of which were top in the top ten of the R&B chart. I’ll be honest–I didn’t really give his album a chance until a few months back, but the songwriting and production are top notch and completely left field. This is saying a lot for a guy that existed in the underground of the underground in the LA rap scene alongside guys like Blu (he was featured on Blu & Exile’s Below the Heavens and even went to high school with Blu) and U-N-I.
