“There’s a very big difference ‘tween what’s rap and what’s real. When those worlds that’s when rappers get real.”
Tha Profitt delivers Saigon’s visuals for “Rap vs. Real.” Gritty. It’s just a video. Keep telling yourself that. The subject matter covered is definitely real though. The single is off the album “Great Story Never Told Chapter II: Bread and Circuses” (available via link in an earlier post here).
“Blown Away” is the latest single from Saigon’s album “The Greatest Never Told Chapter 2: Bread and Circuses.” The music video for the single, presented above, was directed by Nicolas Heller. Check it out. It’s deep – an examination and tribute to those who did good for the people… and got… well, you see the title. And you can pre-order the album via link in an earlier post here.
Nice, nice, nice. Saigon releases a new one – “Relafriendship” (featuring G Martin) – off his forthcoming “The Greatest Story Never Told Chapter 2: Bread and Circuses.” The single relates that all-too-familiar story of friends being ‘almost’ in a relationship always… and… that’s it. So messed up… not the song (the song is hot), but that ‘just friends’ (plus) situation. Now, it has a name - “Relafriendship.” Well, the album named “The Greatest Story Never Told Chapter 2: Bread and Circuses” is due out November 6, 2012, but you can go ahead and pre-order it now from iTunes at the link we provide here.

Saigon drops a new video for one of his more controversial topics off of his “Warning Shots 3″ mixtape/album called “Women Are The New Dogs” featuring Jovan Dais. Sai-Giddy speaks on how he believes women these days have become more “grimey, deceiving, & manipulative” than they’ve ever been. These reality television shows aren’t helping to dispel some of these accusations either. What’s the word people?
New video from Saigon for “Where To Find Me” featuring Quan off of his Just Blaze presents “WARNING SHOTS 3: One Foot In The Grave” mixtape that’s out right now….
This should be an interesting new group to form with Mega, Action Bronson, Roc Marciano, & Saigon joining forces…. I’m interested in seeing with the brothers come up with musically….for now introducing to the world…..it’s “M.A.R.S.”
Many Hip Hop artists throw around typical cliche sayings like “I’m going in” or “I’m hungry” (amongst other things) quite frequently. However Hip Hop is more than talk, its show and prove, and Saigon is doing just that, by eating any beat that has been thrown his way. Here are the visuals to the Sire produced “Hungry” from his Warning Shots 3:One Foot in the Grave mixtape. The Yardfather is letting it be known that any wack emcee can get ate (figuratively and literally apparently). Am I the only one thinking Hannibal Lectre??? Anyway, parallels between Sai-Giddy and the brilliant psychiatrist/cannibalistic serial killer aside, this is a dope jam. Enjoy!!
This is one of my favorite songs from Saigon that I used to blast on the radio show before his album “The Greatest Story Never Told” dropped. Glad “Sai-Giddy” decided to finally drop a video for this joint..
Saigon’s Greatest Story Never Told is out now. This track shows why Saigon is one of the best doing it. Real Music!
The A3C organizers put together a compilation album featuring some of the artist performing this weekend at the A3C festival here in Atlanta October 6-8th. Here are a few leaks from the project.
Freddie Gibbs – ‘Executive Decision’ (Ft. El Prez)
9th Wonder – ‘Jamla Coming At You’ (Ft Thee Tom Hardy, Rhapsody, & Skyzoo)
Saigon – ‘I Know Now’
Saigon drops a new video from one of his older songs that dropped back in 2006. The message in ‘The Color Purple’ is still positive though. I like this joint not only because of the beat but because of the positive message. Red & Blue make Purple…..And loving black people is as easy as Red, Black, & Green.
While in Atlanta promoting his critically acclaimed album ‘Greatest Story Never Told’ album, Saigon meets CyHi Da Prynce for the first time & discuss working on a song together. It’s great timing how they met because prior to CyHi stopping by V-103′s studios unexpectedly, Saigon was giving the young Atlanta emcee his props as a lyricist to people who just so happened to be in the studio at the time.
