Saigon Pulls A Lupe

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

We interrupt normally scheduled blogging for this special 80′s Baby bulletin.

Saigon leaked his street single “Pain In My Life” (Bloodstains) to myspace this weekend, a conscious but hardcore record featuring baby-faced (pause!) R&B crooner Trey Songz. The Yardfather reinsured to the loyalists on his page that he’d never sell out for sales and plans to stay to make radio conform to him. Here is Saigon’s whole emotionally charged statement/rant:

This IS my official first street Single off of my new L.P. Greatest Story Never Told….Its a song that I felt I wanted to put out first…I don’t give a fuck about Radio Spins, Give a fuck about the clubs, all I care about is the betterment of my people and the people like myself…..This song features my boy Trey Songz on the hook and was produced by DJ Cocoa Chanelle, a great friend of mine and also a great person period…This song reflects everyday life that REAL people deal with everyday..hate it or Love it, Im doing what the fuck I wanna do in this fickle, bullshit ass, capitalist driven music business…And to those who are supposed to be on my team that are slacking… Dont Worry, Ill carry everybodies fucking load..Thats just what I do….Enjoy the fucking music….Oh, the other selection of songs are just an example of the direction that my album is going in….One Love Saigon…and watch Entourage Damn it…..”

I personally like the record a lot. Cocoa did her thing on the beat and it sounds like classic Sai. But I’m probably a little biased. Anyway here’s the record…Enjoy!

SAIGON “PAIN IN MY LIFE”

  • BHILLBOY

    REASONS 80’s BABY SUCK ASS:

    1. Can’t distinguish between a shit talking non rappin’ as poser with hot beats-(RICK ROSS,JEEZY, CURRENT NEW YORK RAPPERS) and real mc’s who happened to live the gutter life (SCARFACE, UGK, MID 90′S NEW YORK RAPPER).
    2. Thinks having money at 22 means you’ll have money at 32.
    3. Has a job but doesn’t produce shit. (SICKAMORE- SAIGON, BE FOR REAL HOMEY).
    4. Makes lists of greatest mc’s and doesn’t include TUPAC- who was on album number 7 when he died and had enough outtakes to complete 10 albums of fresh material after he was dead.
    5.Wears BAPES.
    6. Shits on Freaknik but his whole generation can’t put anything together even 10% as live.
    7. Hates on the south but is not smart enough to hire DJ TOOMP, COLIPARK, LIL JOHN, JAZZY PHA, MANNIE FRESH, RUNNERS, COOL AND DRE- to give that stale ass New York shit some life.
    8. Thinks E-40 is a novelty act.
    9. Thinks they can’t have a good life without playing sports, being in entertainment, or slangin dope.
    10. Likes JAY Z more than a pre 80’s baby even though JAY is 35.
    11. Thinks old head nigga’s is suckas but can’t woop anybody’s ass between the ages of 28-35.
    12. Plays video games more than they play with PUSSY.
    13. Are single handedly responsible for the DIP SET.
    14. Don’t own homes.
    15. Watch Entourage but don’t watch THE WIRE.
    16.Tries to bring back New York.- I mean who cares really other than New Yorkers and since when have they mattered.
    17.Don’t vote at all.
    18. Don’t remember the RZA having a grill or METHOD with his grill with FANGS.
    19.Let white people take over the true school. BREAKING, GRAFITTI, MC and DJ BATTLES.
    20. Thinks whatever they do is the new shit when it’s either only shit or old shit redone.

    I havent heard words like that come from a hardcore rapper since 1996. This niggas the truth. A smart street nigga who can actually spit. Im only gonna purchase 3 albums this year and his is one of em(If Atlantic drops it in the 4th quarter).
    Yo Sick does Saigon know that Shahiem from the Wu released a album wit the same title? Aint that illegal or some shit?

  • Climax

    Well, I like the record, but I’m not sure about as a single. Read in an interview that Cee-Lo may pop up on his album – now that track with Cee-Lo’s Gnarls Barkley fame could do something for Sai. But I don’t really care as long as the album is bangin’!

    Hope he got a single for BET or MTV cuz they gonna hate on this…dope track though!

    This post is on point like a javalin, especially number one and two. I can’t knock these young cats who think that Rick Ross and Young Jeezy are nice cause that’s what they was brought up on. If a firebird is the first car you ever drove, of course you gonna think that it is the fastest. I just feel sorry for them because the hiphop they gettin now is so second rate. They not gonna be able to hear what real shh sounds like.

    Shout out to Saigon for doing that real shh. This kid is the future of hip-hop.

    Unless these kids were bought up in the big pac jayz nas phase of rap or before they miss the whole meaning of rap..Therapy and tourcher at the same time..lol, The content has changed.. Saigons song reminds me of Dont push me cause im close to the edge type of song(if you aint ole school that was over your head)..has meaning, its that be aware of my pain and my surroundings kinda hip hop ,thats missing now.. Something with some kinda substace to it.. Fortunately you have Mc’s who are still on thier gring opening eyes to what really takes place.. Aint supposed to waste your pain .. you supposed to use it to take your places in life.. He’s definately doing his part.. Song is hot..

    Saigon’s dat nigga but this song is a little too boring 4 me.

  • Meka Soul

    reasons 80′s babies suck ass pt 2:

    1. being ceo of their own “entertainment company” usually entails screen-printing a bunch of t-shirts with their logo on it & having their friends/weed carriers order their coronas at the club.

    2. they think “all eyez on me” is old-school.

    3. although they have said blackberry or sidekick, it is usually under a “pay as you go” plan.

    4. still live with their parents/guardians.

    5. they think that selling mix cds is considered “hustling.”

    6. they claim to be a hustler, but don’t hold a job for longer than 3 months.

    7. they don’t have medical/dental benefits or a 401[k] before they’re 30.

    8. they’re an “asst. manager” [read: weed carrier] at the local fast food “restaurant” [that shit is poison, people].

    9. they don’t consider you an 80′s baby because while you can bang out to young jeezy, ne-yo & lil’ wayne, you can also nod your head to the isley brothers, prince & marvin gaye.

    10. they want to be a rapper when they grow up.

    11. you heard of reaganomics before you heard of ronald reagan.

    now, as a 25-yr old [read: born in 1981 = 80's baby] kat who just so happens to fit most of what was posted earlier, does that mean i’m not an 80′s baby?

    All you 80′s baby hating motherfuckers make me sick! Sickamore’ s post are dead on and all you are doing, bhillboy, is futher proving his shit to be true. I don’t understand how there are all these so called “real hip hop fans” who haven’t bought an album from their “favorite artists” since the early 90′s. And before y’all start bugging out saying “he’s another pop/rap lovin kid” i love hip hop and i cop damn near every type of rap artist from ghost to dmx to mos def. But I want to know what ghost real hip hop as opposed to joc or jezzy or TI who people like to hate on hard in thier column. Back in the “golden era” niggas lyrics were simple as hell (site: “i’m dmc, in the place to be and the place to be is with dmc”) Hip Hop was met to move the crowd and get the party hype. And while you old crusty motherfuckers are stuck in a time warp, us 80′S BABIES will continue to do so. ONE

  • Angry Bed Stuy 86 Baby

    Bhill and others who are trying to criticize and look down upon “80′s babies” are missing the point of Sick’s blogs by posting that “80′s babies suck because”shit.

    First of all never knock a mans entreprenuerial motives. Employees never make big money, thats why sickamore at 20 is probably making more than you angry 70′s babies, so who gives a fuck about health benefits when you can actually AFFORD the shit you need in life?

    Us 80′s babies CAN distinguish between a quality MC and a wack one, we just choose entertainment over politics when we listen to music, sometimes fun is more important than number of sylables in a verse.

    Its funny how hard you knock a whole generation of listeners who forthe most part are in COLLEGE or of college age, yet try to shit on them for not owning homes/living with parents/etc. Dont let hate tarnish the accomplishments young people have made in their lives and try to trivialize them by saying they wont have money at 32 just because they have it now – that just means at 32 your life sucks and you dont have the means that a man 10 years younger than you have and you hope his life sucks just as bad as yours does in the future.

    NO ONE born before the 80′s can say SHIT about the chicken noodle soup or Bapes. You asses used to wear tight ass Jordache jeans and izods AND gave us the running man amongst other assorted stupid looking dances.

    You angry pre-80′s cats are showing not only your age, but your disconnect to the current hip hop scene. Dont even try to say everyone of your generation was Rakim and Big Daddy Kane, you know you had the party mc’s as well. Bizzy B anyone?!

    New York is the birthplace of hip hop, one of the most influential regions of hip hop and one of the most emulated. The lack of quality in a main round for anything means an overall lack of quality in the whole, and that something is missing.’

    Hip Hop is NOT an action, but an ATTITUDE, which has evolved over the years. NO hiphop in fact has NOT receded like your hairlines. So the lack of breaking, dj and graffiti holds no weight when hip hop has manifested itself in many artforms, sports, and mediums worldwide. It just doesnt mean the same thing now that it did 10-20 years ago, which is why it is so great.

    I just cant stand you guys that think a whole generation grew up on trash, because for every rick ross, young jeezy and young Joc, theres a Serius Jones, Papoose, Lupe Fiasco, etc so on and so forth as far as NEW torch bearers

    AND I VOTE, dont believe everything you see on tv and read on the internet older dudes, its not good for you

  • Sonny Cheeba

    Sick, u have 3 & 1/2hrs till ur “Cal Ripken Jr” like streak is OVER!!!!

  • Meka Soul

    hate to do this, but…

    Angry Bed Stuy 86 Baby: let’s clarify a couple things:

    >…thats why sickamore at 20 is probably making more than you angry 70’s babies, so who gives a fuck about health benefits when you can actually AFFORD the shit you need in life?>

    ignoring the “sickamore makes more than me” rant, last time i checked, being born in 1981 [january 21, to be exact] doesn’t make me an “angry 70′s baby.” and i don’t know about you, but i’d rather pay $10-$20 per doctor’s visit than dropping a gajillion dollars on some vicodin & an ace bandage, regardless of wealth. that sounds smarter to me.

    plus, having a retirement plan [ie a 401[k], not lottery tickets] by your 20s isn’t a bad thing. i’m pretty sure sick has one as well.

    >Its funny how hard you knock a whole generation of listeners who forthe most part are in COLLEGE or of college age, yet try to shit on them for not owning homes/living with parents/etc.>

    “college age?” please. as a college graduate [who happens to have his own place], i was the youngest in my class [the avg age was 30+]. there’s no such thing as a “college age” when 40-50 year olds are getting college degrees.

    >You angry pre-80’s cats are showing not only your age, but your disconnect to the current hip hop scene.>

    i’ve been in the so-called “hip-hop scene” longer than you’ve been around [once again, read: 1981 = 80's "baby"] so when i see a new york jig beefing because hip-hop sucks, as well as southern artists, jorunalists, industry insiders & bloggers essentially saying the same thing, it makes you wonder if we’re saying what we’re saying because we’re DISCONTENT [college dollars working yet?] or if there’s some validity. can you honestly dance to “chain hang low” before “bust a move?”

    >Hip Hop is NOT an action, but an ATTITUDE, which has evolved over the years. NO hiphop in fact has NOT receded like your hairlines. So the lack of breaking, dj and graffiti holds no weight when hip hop has manifested itself in many artforms, sports, and mediums worldwide. It just doesnt mean the same thing now that it did 10-20 years ago, which is why it is so great.>

    i could easily pick this apart, but i’d probably overload this site’s bandwidth on this one.

    well, at least you vote.

  • Meka Soul

    you can keep the term “80′s baby.” i prefer “grown-ass man” instead.

  • Angry Bed Stuy 86 Baby

    Meka, the majority of your retort is based on trivialization of verbage and not necessarily an solid fact on the subject.

    To be honest, I would MUCH rather have the financial where withal to be able to provide and pay for health care for myself and the ones I love than to “just” pay 10-20 dollars a visit. You may see it as a cheaper option, but to have to personally live and have the ones you love live with such care is a minimalist approach. Because there is more to medicine than a couple doctors visits and a prescription – Ever wonder why people who have money (and not a ‘health plan’) have better health service than those on a benefits plan?

    I dont know If I can cosign your point on retirement. Retirement has already proven itself to be an issue both today and in the future, as the average age of retirement for the average employee is steadily rising and so is the life expectancy – the national retirement plans have not been adjusted to reflect this fact.
    So what would you rather have, a 401k or residual income? If you even know what residual income is.

    Im sorry for not making it clearer, but the “80′s baby” ranges in age from 26 year old possible grad students to people in high school preparing to go to college – That was my estimation of the college age. People this age generally have not had the time to establish themselves as their older counterparts…Who’ve had a TEN year head start.

    Again when making comparisons, everyone keeps picking the extreme ends of the spectrum. Chain hang low is ONE song, not entirely indicative of a whole genre.

    I didnt say that ny hip hop was thriving or that the almighty”5 elements” werent important to its history. They have just evolved with the music. Does it really matter that people dont go outside and breakdance anymore? I mean really, if you are 25, do you seriously put on a record and wanna breakdance on a carboard box outside?

    How is hiphop not an attitude of a culture? The problem I have with certain critics and individuals is that they keep putting hiphop inside of a box and saying it isnt hiphop UNLESS it fits these criteria.Hiphop fashion has evolved, hiphop dance has evolved, the role of the dj and lyricism have evolved. Times and neighborhoods have changed. Hiphop is reaching a much wider audience than ever before.

    Lupe Fiasco is wack? Wow

    You can be discontent, thats your right. But dont spit on and look down on others who are able to sift through garbage and allow themselves to be entertained and have fun rather than be critical of everything.

    btw I dont think anyone considers AEOM to be OLD school. It just happened to be released and gain steam when the latter half of so called 90′s babies were under the age of 10.

    Try again. And if you guys read what Sickamore wrote before his list, he stated that the term in his usage was more indicative of a mind state than an actual age bracket. BUT there are certin things within that age bracket because we were not of age or too young to experience and fully appreciate.
    You cant accurately judge the relevance of any event to its time period unless you were old enough to understand and comprehend it.So sickamore didnt say your freaknik and other shit was wack, it just isnt relevant and prevalent in the younger generation of hiphop fans today.

  • Meka Soul

    if at first you don’t succeed…

    i don’t consider medical benefits a “cheaper” alternative. shit, if i were in a, say, jay-z type position, i’d just as easily drop a kool g on fixing myself up. but because i [and likely you, as well as everyone else on this blog] aren’t in that higher tax bracket [which can afford us such meaningful things as spinning rims & blood diamonds], i personally think it’s economically efficient [read: it won't burn your pockets] to have said medical & dental benefits.

    continuing on the topic of wealth, retirement is a much better plan for those individuals who do not make high five-up figures a year. while the average life expectancy & retirement age is increasing, it would also be wise to START INVESTING EARLY, so you don’t have to work til you’re 70.

    and yes, i know what residual income is. i’m making some as i write this, by the way.

    picking one extreme begats picking another extreme. you claims of people wearing young ass jeans & shirts may be true, yet the same can go for the current generation’s 7xl white tees & red monkey jeans. hink before you write…

    please. if people don’t consider “all eyez on me” old school, why is jay-z’s “give it to me” sometimes the “old school jam of the day” on “106 ‘n’ park?”

    never said lupe fiasco was wack. in fact, his album is probably the only album i plan on purchasing this year. legally. eyes working alright?

    you’re right, i am a little apathetic on the current music scene, but me “spitting on and looking down on others who are able to sift through garbage and allow themselves to be entertained and have fun rather than be critical of everything” is just a little too dramatic, don’t you think? i don’t have time to talk down about why jigs shuck n jive to today’s plethora of bullshit; there’s plenty of jigs on this site alone as is.

    >I mean really, if you are 25, do you seriously put on a record and wanna breakdance on a carboard box outside?>

    tell that to the rocksteady crew, who’s been doing that for over 3 decades. or the various participants in breaking [not "break-dancing," get your facts straight, people] competitions worldwide.

    while sickamore considers being an “80s baby” as a state of mind, when he pulls shit like this out his ass:

    5) You don’t have a myspace page

    6) You have a myspace page but with no picture. It makes you look like a child molester.

    7) You own a Roots album

    8) But you don’t own a Gangsta Grillz

    it makes you wonder…

    you finished? cuz i certainly am.

    like sick said above, ” i do this in my sleep…”

    and i’m still making my residual income as i finish this.

    and yes, i own a couple pairs of red monkey jeans.

    i think you misinterpreted some of what I was trying to say. If you look, before I mentioned the tight ass jeans, i mentioned our generations Bapes – so i’m not trying to skate around that, just noting the similarity in trend.

    Maybe some of the things I commented on weren’t exactly your words, but they were thoughts scattered around the posts above yours, so I’m not trying to pin a dramatic argument on you, just spreading my thoughts around those that tweaked me a little.

    Those “people” who consider Give it to me a flashback classic joint are the same people who supposedly have a list of artists they do not support or play on their radio stations. Even tho it is taking one back a couple years in “flashback” fashion, i hardly think many of us would consider it an old school song.

    I think both our arguments are missing the point now that I think about it, because for the most part we dont exactly control what we are marketed and force fed by the executives who put Mike Jones and D4L in heavy rotation and tried to bury artists like Ghost and the Lox.

    Either way, nice discussion.Down with the JIgs

    I am so sick of people being sooo critical of Hip Hop nowadays… I am an 80′s baby and the only 2Pac album I would seriously buy is the Greatest Hits! He made some good songs but I don’t think his flow was Deadly enough to be one of the best rappers ever! And on that note… Jeezy is the Man! Why do people hate on him like he does what he does for mainstream radio and tv?! He Came doin’ him and the radio conformed to his style. Name one rapper who has an album that sounds like Thug Motivation 101. U Can’t because there isn’t one. Sorry for the Rant, just tired of everyone saying “that’s okay, but it’s not like when i used to listen to rap”. True there is a lottta of BS out there but there is also a lot of good music so please stop condemning the culture i love so dearly
