Not known for biting his tongue, Saigon is no stranger to dropping science. On his much-anticipated debut album, The Greatest Story Never Told, the skillful rapper is about to change the world with his poetic flair and wild style. ‘I refuse to be a cookie cutter artist.” he states.
Originally, signed to Atlantic Records, Saigon quit the business when he felt the label was trying to comprise his artistic integrity. “I’m the boss of my music now,” says Saigon, who like the best artists has his own vision that he combines with street knowledge, hip-hop swagger and uncanny intelligence. Currently signed to producer Just Blaze’s recently launched label Fort Knocks Entertainment, in partnership with Abandoned Nation/Suburban Noize, he is more than ready. Indeed, even before his official debut has dropped, Saigon already has a following of fans who have heard him on various mixtapes including his street classic Abandoned Nation, a collaboration with DJ Whoo Kid and Just Blaze.
The Greatest Story Never Told was produced primarily by Just Blaze, the talented producer behind smash hits for Jay-Z, Eminem and T.I., the disc also contains contributions from Kanye West, and Buck Wild. In addition, the stunning rapper also collaborated with various artists including Jay-Z & Swizz Beatz (“Cmon Baby”), Faith Evans (“Clap”) and former Floetry member Marsha Ambrosius (“It’s Alright).
