Saigon Single World Premiere

I told y’all I’m the new blog king. Courtesy of Mr. Smith, the full No DJ version of Saigon’s single. It’s actually called “C’mon Baby” and it features Swizz Beatz and Just Blaze. Happy born day, Giddy!

P.S. For doz that slept: The new Wyclef single has also leaked (Scratch cover with him and T.I. coming sooner than you think). What a great day for hip-hop!

P.P.S. My 10th anniversary cover is Baby and Lil Wayne. I said it in my KRS post last weekend. Reading Is Fundamental. Word to Easy Mo Bee.

  • http://notbadforanexslave.com Nelson

    I hear more punchlines in a George Galloway speech than i do from a a whole rap album. This Saigon aint nothing special

  • LEX

    This is HEAT! Possibly my favorite Saigon song ever. Perfect track for him to rhyme on. Swizz put down a dope hook too. This is ready for the radio.

  • DubyaB

    I agree, the beat is a tad too loud, but the beat and song are amazing. When is the release date?

  • che

    bloody hell, nelson, r u from England? I see and speak to George Galloway every other day, i didn’t know he was known around the world like that…

  • BIG ROB

    Baby and Lil Wayne on the 10th Ann. cover? What is this, is XXL turning into Ozone?

  • 810

    ill shit

  • goosey

    thank you

  • SPACE COWBOY

    Siagon sucks, i havent bought a copy of XXL in a minute, but i’ll cop that one with The best rapper alive on the cover. that joint with Wayne and Wyclef is fire. this siagon song is garbage. dont get your hopes up haters. like the big homie Jayceon Taylor said…. Saigon you wouldn’t get far.

    This aint hate, it’s the truth and i know the truth hurts, but it’s true so embrace it.

    “It was Written” (on xxlmag.com)

    NY i’m begging you to bring out some hot rappers besides the 4 or 5 that you got that people can recognize, these new NY niggas are garbage. ya’ll need to start over with a clean slate.

    south still running shit.

    T.I. #1 record

  • J.R.O.

    Average to me, and I’m a big fan of Sai’.

  • X to Z

    Saigon can truly rhyme over any type of beat. This shit is that HOT summer crack. If you don’t agree just admit you hating on the kid. Niggas can’t say he don’t spit flames on these beats.

  • Nashon

    this song is what hiphop needs plain n simple

  • diaz

    only people who say this is wack are the people who are into commercialized wack hip pop. saigon is a lyrical beast. and for that idiot who said he dont have punchlines is retarted cause hip hop aINT ABOUT PUNCHLINES. sai spits from the heart. so if u dont like it dont bitch and complain why hip hop is dead. and go listen to that fag who likes to kiss his own dad ewwww.

  • FatMonkey

    I wish BOL haddnt took away saigons shine, he’s one of the greatset out there. except he’s not considered one.

  • NJG

    of the 48 responses there only 5 (Lilwayne) dickriders who thinks this is wack, but i don’t give a shit about those guys they are only into that commercial shit, i bet y’all (those 5) are still listening to Candy Shop… Suckazz

    ps. This song is a Certified Banger!! I hope it comes out in Europe too…

  • Mean Green

    This song wont make Saigon any new fans. And the TI’s at Atlantic know it. Most Dj’s (who are worth a scratch) wont have any way to mix this into their sets, especially in clubs….until Hov’s verse, which totally defeats the purpose. I’m cool with it though, but I know the difference between a song that I dig and a hit. Sorry.

  • TRUTHBTOLD

    R U SERIOUS! HE GOT HIS A$$ WHUPPED IN SPRINGFIELD NY! U KNOW WHAT EVEN IF HE DID I BET U 2 SUCKAS WERE IN THE HOUSE WHEN U HEARD THIS RIGHT?! BITCH A$$ WINDOW WASHERS. IF I RECALL I WAS IN SPRINGFIELD WITH SAI HANGING AND HE HAS TRUE Gs BEHIND HIM AND THEY’RE HOLDING IT DOWN. ALTHOUGH ITS A HICK ASS SPOT! BEEN THRU MANY PJs AND THEY HOLD THERE OWN. EVEN IN THAT DAYUM PARKING LOT THE WHOLE TOWN HANGS IN. OH AND DID U FORGET OR DIDN’T HEAR ABOUT THE BANG BANG HE PUT IN THAT KID AT THAT SILLY ASS BAR. MAN GROW UP U INTERNET PUNKS. IT DOESN’T MATTER IF HE LOST A FIGHT OR WON, ITS ABOUT THE MUSIC AND HE’S TEARING IT UP. ALTHOUGH THIS ISN’T HIS BEST WORK LYRICALLY HE FINALLY GAVE ATLANTIC NOT JIVE THE SINGLE THEY WANT. AND YES BTWN HIS SINGLE AND 50s NEW YORK IS ON FIRE AGAIN! ELLIOT THE LIL WAYNE COVER WON’T BLOW BRUH UNLESS THE CONTROVERSY EXISTS LIKE YOU’VE DONE IN THE PAST. WRITER BETTER ASK ABOUT THE JAY Z SITUATION AMONGST OTHER THINGS. AND YES HAVE HIM KISS HIS DADDY FOR THE COVER AND WATCH THE CRITIQUES GO GRRRRAAAAZZY!

  • Cuban Link

    @ Mean Green, your right about the DJs at the club not playing this, but I honestly can see this getting a lot of play on Hot 97.

  • CHICAGO PaPii

    More Gay Ass Lil Wayne and Baby XXL Magazine Covers? These niggas need to put more Genuine Hip-Hop Niggaz on the Cover ( No Weezy F. Gayby)!! WHEN IS WE SEEING THAT KANYE WEST COVER????????

  • CHICAGO PaPii

    And oh yeah Saigon shit is ok, but, he reminds of the Average New York MC, nothing Special like Biggie, Nas, Jay, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane. Why is you niggas Dick Riding dude soooooooooo Hard? Why is this YN nigga making LightSkinned niggas like Myself look bad, puttin the Homo-Emo-Lame Rapper Lil Wang back on the XXL Cover? Does YN and the pundits at the XXL get free Booze and Hookers from the Companies like Aftermath, Cash Money and shit? Is these niggas EVER gonna give Kanye his Props? Niggaz Kill yourselves!!!

  • The Kid

    Sorry Guys, this single isn’t gonna cut it. If I was Atlantic, I wouldn’t push it either. My money’s on T.I.

  • http://notbadforanexslave.com Ex-Slave

    Dont get me wrong this song is good but its just not a song that will take Sai to the next level. In fact i think it is fair to say that this single has tanked already. No buzz. I personally think people are trying to like it. That ‘Dont Do That’ record was better than this. Cant believe Sai and Jb were beefing over this record….

  • hoviebabie

    LIL WAYNE AGAIN DAM MAYBE ITS COZ IM A CHIC BUT HE DOES NOTHING FOR ME AND I HATE HIS VOICE – DEFINETLY NOT GONNA COP THAT ISSUE IF HE ON IT!!!! P.S ARE THEY GONNA BE KISSING??????

  • My Effin’ Opinion

    sounds very “Jay-Zish”, but it’s cool …

  • Cuban Link

    how isnt this lyrical?

    “Im like me on Entourage, playing myself”

    damn, lol thats a classic line right there

  • no-nie

    It’s your 10th anniversary and your putting weezy and baby on tha cover?

  • IsisQueen

    Some of you really don’t know Hip Hop, like you think you do. I’m tired of people thinking you have to put out a club record or have something gimmicky or catchy just to be noticed. When will y’all realize it ain’t about that. It’s about making respectable music. Now I’m not the biggest Saigon fan, but it’s been a while since a joint had my hype like that (as in a wild out joint to nod too). Although the song is OK with me. I was expecting better. But the song is far from wack. It’s not about buzz, record sales, or being number 1 on billboard. It’s about good music.

  • Incilin

    What song did they sample for that?? The vocal reminds me of a line from “The End” by the Doors. Which seems unlikely. This looks like a job for YN!

    I think that the Saigon single is ok. It’s hard to live up to all the hype and anticipation after waiting on constant push-backs of the release date for this album. Based on this song and pain in my life, I dont think this will be the best album of all time as Saigon predicted. I have told so many friends about Saigon based on his mix tapes and bootlegs, because he does have the talent to be the best rapper alive. But being the best also comes with being able to put together classic/memorable hooks and on this track I can’t even understand what they are saying in the hook. It’s definitely not a classic. However, all the other rappers around are so horrible that Saigon will probably rise to the top if he can put together a decent album. His best song that could be rehashed for radio is Cold World.

  • Ryan

    this shit is ridiculous but lets be honest will it really have an impact on hip hop? saigon is claiming this is the best album in the last 20 years, and this song is nothing short of incredible but is it really gonna change anything? if this makes it into the billboard top 200 i’ll be very suprised, if this makes real rap come back i’ll be very suprised, this shit is amazing but i dont think the ringtone era is over because of saigon…

  • yup

    where can i download this version? way tighter than the one on the album…
