Title: Your thoughts on Saigon???
Post by: UKnowWhatItIs: welcome to my traps....game over on May 05, 2005, 02:13:45 PM
Personally I compare this dude to fresh air in this rap game.Everyone is so played out,everyone is a wannabe gangsta,everyone makes club songs & so on.In my eyes,Saigon is a incredble rapper,he's my personal favorite & this is only from mixtape shit.I cant believe the dude is so slept on.Just listen to songs like Slap Niggas, What Am I Gonna Do, Shok TV, Stocking Cap, Color Purple, No Idea & so on.I can go on for ages.I just cant wait for him to release an album.Im sure its gonna be a classic.Is anyone other than me anticipatin his album???What are yall thoughts on Saigon???

hes a real dope rapper but hes irritating coz he contradicts himself more then Nas and Tupac combined. and dude needs to start talkin bout himself instead of speakin on other motherfuckers business that he aint got no clue about. his album wont be a classic due to Just Blaze, now some of yall might say what the fuck did this mofo just type. but Just Blaze has never proved himself as an executive producer and thats a lot harder then most peeps think. and if he provides the majority of the beats i wont be checking for this album coz their styles just dont match IMO. and sadly i think Sai will flop hard and thats ashame coz dude is talented but id rather hear an album fron Quan coz hes the real truth

^You need to get his new mixtape - Abandoned Nation,easily best mixtape of the year.& no,Im not biased,after hearin all his previous mixtapes & then hearin this he proved he's the best upcoming mc.Basically every mixtape he released is fuckin dope,way better than most people's albums these days.

He actually talks about himself alot,his experiences on the streets,jail,basically the shit he went through.As for Just Blaze being executive producer,Saigon pointed out in some interview that Just Blaze knows that Saigon wants to have alotta control over the shit thats goin on wit the album.Quan is dope but I dont see him releasin an album better than Saigon's.

well id take the 5 Quan songs ive heard over the 5 best Saigon tracks ive heard but like in anything else its a matter of taste. yes he does speak about his time in prison and says that he aint gloryfying it(when he is)then he shits on other rappers who talk about that shit when hes talkin about the exact same shit. and he tries to be political but theres tons of rapper who does that better then him and theres tons of rappers who spits harder street shit then he does. and if i want both gangsta and policital music at the same time id rather listen to Kam or Cube. but its all opinions tho but homie is talented but hes not this messiah that people make him out to be.

Immortal Technique > Saigon > New York

Sai Giddy is a beast. He's got a lot of potential. I think with Jus Blaze on the beats, he'll really have a shot at blowing. Hopefully he gives him crack like "Safe 2 Say" or "Breathe.'

imo Saigon is dope, ive pretty much felt what ive heard from him up til now, and that last mixtape was dope, The Letter P and True Story were probably the stand-out tracks for me...

i think hes one of the only people out right now who im really checking for, like someone i actually look forward to hearing new music from, nowadays there arent too many artists i feel like that about...

plus if your album is gonna have production by Just Blaze and Alchemist, you cant really go wrong in my eyes lol...altho i do wanna hear him on a Primo track tho...

I've been waiting like 5 years now for his album.  He's taking as long as Ali Vegas drop one.
