Saigon did an interview with SOHH in which he criticized Rick Ross for being a poor role model. Why y’all supportin’ a nigga that promotes the destruction of our community? Why are you doin’ that? Why would you let this nigga thrive and we don’t know where our next jobs are coming from? He continues […]
Saigon talks to RapRadar about going #1 on the hip hop charts on iTunes as well as what he wants to be remembered for. I haven’t had time to check this album, is it worth checking?

Since declaring to the world his retirement a month ago, Saigon via his myspace blog, is announcing his triumphant return (WHAT A SURPRISE!!! *sarcasm*). Obviously, he’s going to come back, this foo has obligations under his contract and besides what the hell is he going to do if he don’t rap? Become a preacher? (Well…). […]
Remember when Jay-Z was actually a pop artist. He was making songs like “Big Pimpin”, “Hey Papi”, and “Give it to Me”. This is really the Jay-Z I want to see brought back. I love Reasonable Doubt Jay, but I hated that he had to succumb to the pressure of the critics by making conscious […]
Saigon has just announced via his myspace blog myspace.com/saigonthayardfather that he has quit rap.
