Saigon Reaches Out to David Banner Regarding Similar Album Titles

saigon2.jpgAs Saigon prepares to release his debut solo album on Atlantic Records, The Greatest Story Never Told, The Yardfather told XXLMag.com in an exclusive interview that he wanted to reach out to David Banner after hearing the Mississippi native was going to call his upcoming album, The Greatest Story Ever Told. “I just seen a David Banner ad and it said his album is called, Greatest Story Ever Told,” Saigon told XXLMag.com. “I wanted to speak to David so we can clear that up. So if you’re reading this, please reach out to me brother. That’s my friend. We’re cool. When we see each other it’s a lot of love. [But] that’s too close for comfort for me.”

    who gives a fuck? People know that saigon is saigon and david banner is crunk. people are not going to accidentally buy david banner’s album thinking it’s saigon’s…so what does it matter?

  • Ghost Deini

    Truth.

  • Pennies

    so what now? the world revolves around saigon? really, what is there to talk about? you gonna ask him to change his title…gtfoh…

    What the big deal wit the album haveing similler names??? Not like the covers are going to be the same.

  • beeyo

    …….this is news???

  • fireforreal

    who gives a fuck for the fact that David Banner fans don’t listen to Saigon.2 What if David Banner has his album really ready to release and changes his title for Saigon and Saigon doesn’t even come out for another year or so I know atlantic said it’s coming out soon but they have been telling Sai that for like 3 years now so it holds no weight.

  • GMAN

    1st dipset all day

  • crack

    yo fuck saigon david banner will straight murder him

  • pastormurdamase

    I don’t see the problem, saigon’s album is gonna come out in 2010 anyway…

  • Detroit P

    For both of them to come out with albums whose titles differ by one letter would be bad for business on both sides…and saigon has had his title for a while and it has meaning to it..David Banner mighta came up with it thinkin it just sounds good

  • SFC

    Shyheim already released an album with this exact same title way back in 2004. how about Saigon come up with an original album title and it will all be solved. don’t tell me he’s never heard of Shyheim.

  • ill theory

    For the numbskulls, its called maturity. The man obviously is trying to make sure that there isnt going to be any conflict behind the names of the albums. Since Hip Hop these days seem to have some odd fixation on starting behind nothing. Hats off to the brother for reaching out and showing some “class” Respect due.

  • yaboy

    Sai has had that title forever. it does make a difference, it hurts both artists…

    regardless, im looking forward to THE GREATEST STORY NEVER TOLD

  • Vincity972

    Agree with Detroit P…Real heads know the difference it don’t even matter If David Banner thinks I’m goin’ buy his album…he got it wrong

  • SFC

    he’s had it “forever”…like since he took the idea from Shyheim in 2004?

  • ABC

  • Kornphlake

    So is Saigon calling shotgun on the name?

  • IndonesianMafia

    Now I understand…Saigon is a bitch that needs attention…he should see a shrink

  • 92FS

    “Crack” I think you need to lay off of that shit if you really think Banner will murder Saigon…but don’t really matter to me how similar tha album titles are.

  • INTERSCOPE JACKSON

    WHO CARES THIS IDIOT SAI TALKS TOO MUCH

  • Dr Flav

    It would be entertaining to see David Banner laugh in this dumbass’ face. He better get his numbers or be “the biggest joke never heard.”

  • Purple Hulk

    I DONT SEE WHY HES COMPLAINING, IF ANYTHING ITS GONNA HELP HIS SALES, SOME PEOPLE WILL PROBABLY BE STUPID ENOUGH TO BUY THAT THINKING ITS BANNERS, GUYS PROBABLY NOT GONNA SELL MUCH ANYWAY

  • Aquarius_chick

    Are you kidding me? Let the sales speak for this shit! David Banner reps harder than mutha. Who the hell is Saigon anyway?

  • nusouthent

    Saigon is a whiney ass lil baby. NIgga you in the music business, shit aint just goingto up and change cuz you crying about it. He making things hard on himself. He got skills and all but dude character is wack. I dont know him but he seems like da soiled lil kid dat use to get everything he want and when he didnt he threw a fit. DBANNER is a good dude so im sure he real reach back to him but odont cross banner cuz it will be the end of SAIGON

  • murdermami

    saigon sucks

  • Face Phoenix

    I’m starting to believe Saigon is willing to do anything to get some kind, any kind of buzz going about his album. I was interested until this lame ass rush of faux publicity with him and his label. Saigon stick to the music and just grind it out. No one cares if your album and DB’s have the same title. This is juvenile at the least like his can’t get a better a title. Many artists have had to change their albums title and still sold well (50, Game & Etc). 99% of the time the title to an album means squat in the grander scheme of things. Make good music and guess what you could call it “Condee and Dubya’s Love Music” and it will still sell. Saigon here’s a good idea call it SAIGON. Damn this dude is sounding mighty desperate with all this Bullsh*t.
