Not being one to pull punches, Saigon just doesn’t understand what makes both Rick Ross and Big Sean a hit with hip-hop fans today. The Yardfather made that perfectly clear in a recent interview with SOHH.
“Why ya’ll supporting a nigga that promotes the destruction of our community?” Saigon told the website, referring to Ross. “Why are you doing that? Why would you let this nigga thrive and we don’t know where our next jobs are coming from? He’s rapping about selling kilos of cocaine and selling drugs. This is what he’s about, this whole lifestyle saying he’s so rich and he eats shrimp every night and ya’ll support this shit? Ya’ll broke and poor and your family’s about to get kicked out. That’s our hit, son. That’s his hit.”
After slamming Rozay and hip-hop fans who enjoy his content, Sai switched gears to Big Sean.
“Nobody knows the words to this song, all they know is, ‘Ass, ass, ass, ass, ass, ass, ass.’ We don’t care about ‘ass, ass, ass, ass,’ but this is the society we living in right now. So, it’s like alright.”
After great hype and years of delays, Saigon finally released The Greatest Story Never Told album last February. It featured the likes of Jay-Z, Swizz Beatz, Devin the Dude, Bun B and Q-Tip.
More recently, Sai has joined forces with Cormega, Action Bronson and Roc Marciano to form the four-man rap group, M.A.R.S. The lyrical contingent haven’t announced plans to drop an official joint project as of press time.—Jakinder Singh (XXL Mag)
