LINK: Saigon Announces He’s Quitting Rap

In today’s post on his MySpace blog, New York rapper Saigon claims that he will no longer be rapping. The post, which is titled “I QUIT……..,” Sai details his frustration with the media for the way that they sensationalize beef and certain other aspects of a rapper’s career. In particular, he points to a recent two hour interview he did on Shade45 where comments about slapping Nelly were blown out of proportion. Here, in Saigon’s words, is the full blog post:

Monday, November 19, 2007

I QUIT……..

You see I got into rap a very very long time ago, I didnt do it to become rich, I didnt do it to become famous, I did it because it was a way for me to vent about the bad things that were happening around me, It was therapy for me so to speak…..Ive realized now that sooo many people have gotten into Hip Hop, whether the business aspect or otherwise, its not really for me anymore…First of all, people need to know that I am a contraversal person period, before I ever was in a magazine, on T.V. in a studio, I was very very deep in the street shit…Contraversy has always followed me, Its unfortunate but it is what it is…Its my life…I dont try to start shit to cause contraversy, its the Media, the press and yall who eat off contraversy who start the shit, try to make me look wild or out of control when Im just being myself….I cant take turning on a computer and seeing my name being thrown around in all kinds of ways, Its not good for me, and not good for these writers, I am accident prone for life, I will take a page out of the Wu Tang book and beat the shit outta one of yall man, youre playing with fire.. Should I post my Rap Sheet on the internet for yall dummies..Im not a regular dude. I never signed up for this so Im stepping away from this fake shit…..I did a interview on Shade45, the interview was 2 hours long mind you, we talked about EVERYTHING from what we need to do as a people to get on track to economizing and everything but you know whats on all the so called media outlets in boldface as the headline, ‘Saigon Disses Whoever’…You know what part of a 2 hr interview they replay? Me saying something about a person…If I woulda said, Ill slap John Hardy Hawkins for his role in the Slave trade, they would never put it in boldface or re run it 1000 times, but If I say Ill slap a rapper or something, Its the headline news of the day….Thats ass backwards to me so Im done…No more interviews, no more mixtapes, no nothing….Im not a rapper anymore, Im done.. Im back to being regular me…This shit is too fake for me, I found myself getting caught up in the bullshit but now Ill gladly walk away…These people are so predictable that to prove to my niggas who would say my buzz was dying or whatever, I would say ‘oh yeah’, watch this, then for fun, I would just do an interview and make a comment about someone because I knew they would run back like little bitches who instigate something to get the people talking. Then walah, youre buzz is back, (nevermind the 10 great new songs you just put out)..But its not fun anymore…I look at the Prodigy incident, that started not because of anything but these media outlets…He told me to suck his dick in an INTERVIEW..Then it becomes physical, we both coulda got shot, stabbed or even killed…Had I been with my crew somebody wouldve died in there all over something that started in an INTERVIEW. Then the same people who instigated it would be talking about how senseless we are..I dont give a fuck if nobody ever does a story on me again..I dont rap anymore, I dont need it anymore… I no longer have to keep pretending to be a certain way to care about a radio spin, or an interview, so I can address these people when I see them like I BEEEEN wanting to, and thats unbiased. NO MOREASS KISSING FOR ME. (Thank God)All of that trying to be politically correct bullshit is just that, bullshit..There is no honor amongst theives…Now I can say what the fuck I want, when I want, however I the fuck I want without people feeling like they have the right to ridicule me, judge me and talk slick about me because I have that word “rapper” attached to me, or because Im a “rapper” who supposed to know how to talk to these fake ass media people who really dont give 2 fucks about hip hop or black culture period. How many of these outlets are owned by black people anyway? I know alot of people dont give a fuck about me stepping away, some people might but so what, its a wrap…Some people will say I was wack anyway lol, or I never had punchlines or funny metaphores anyway, but that wasnt my thing anyway….I left enough great music behind for people to understand I was good at rapping, thats all I ever wanted out of it, But now Im back on my bullshit…I have no KIDS, I have nothing to lose. My purpose for even starting this was trying to get black people out of the stages of deaf, dumb and blindness and with the way of the world today thats a fight I probably couldve never won anyway…I wouldve given my life trying to save my people and died in vein like alot of people did…And to that rapper thats throwing my name around, U must be retarted or like hospital food or something, we have BEEF homie, not rap beef, beef beef..I have nothing more to say about that….Fuck this bum ass rap game anyway, its full of fake ass niggaz who pump poison to the kids, make a few dollars and act like theyre larger then life when they know their music is detrimental to their fucking communities, If it aint about sex, its about drugs or violence, where are the songs about getting an eduacation, or being responsible parents and shit, or stopping the Gang Violence…This shit is sickening……Im done…..SAIGON IS DEAD…Should I say Ill slap a rapper so they run and put it in all their news section and gossip columns..Okay Ill slap the shit outta EVERY Rapper hows that….I QUIT, now I gotta figure out how Im gonna break this to Just Blaze……THE GREATEST STORY NEVER TOLD=Prophecy……

  • the G.O.D

    Peace to man, woman and child

    sun made a few nice comments there but one thing you need to know is going back to these streets is not the way to go. First since you are talking about educating the community, you should begin with yourself. It is no excuse to use words any old way, i.e. too many misspelled words and grammatical mistakes dunn. As a black man you should learn to have a thick skin and that is what the streets have taught me. You have a career which is more than the idiots you are letting off steam at have or will ever have.

    Hold your head blackman.

    Peace

    For those of you who don’t believe that he is quitting….Fuck Ya’ll! I totally understand why he is quitting. I am an unknown producer/artist and there is alot of bullshit in the game. I decided to quit producing and making tracks this week too. Nobody is trying to take the culture or the artform to the next level. Most of the music out is wack. The majority of rappers have no real lyrical talent. Too much of the music is recycled, bitten, and out right weak. The major players in the game are the very people that are hurting the game because they won’t bring in new and hungry talent. They just want you to give them your beats for free and take all the credit for your work. I was at the Sha Money/G Unit Producers Conference in Phoenix AZ this year and it was so much political bullshit going on it was sickening. Sha Money and G Unit were cool, don’t get me wrong, but the other people outside of G Unit that were in charge of choosing the hottest beats were on some ole bitch shit. Sha Money knew that the producers that were picked to compete in the battle didn’t really cut it because no one was coming with fire and originality. He wanted to pick some hungry dudes out of the audience. So I stood up with my CD and he looked right at me and pointed at me for me to come up and take that shit. But the dude that was MCing the event was like “Nah Sha, lets pick the CD’s out of the box that we had set up for them to put their cd’s in.” I was like man this dude is a ho. They had their own picks to compete in the battle so no one was really gonna get on anyway. Once again, G Unit was cool. So, I totally understand where Saigon is coming from and I have never listened to his music.

    Hey, Saigon…here’s how it works:

    In order for you to have a BELEIVABLE retirement, NEVER MAKE A BIG ANNOUNCEMENT OUT OF IT. Just leave. That’s it. Period. End of story. If you make it a big announcement, it only shows that you have too big of an ego to let yourself stay out of the spotlight for too long. In other words, you’ll be back.

    Second, it ain’t the Internet’s fault that you threw a hissy fit just because P said “suck my dick” in an interview and that you took it upon yourself to PM Dawn his ass.

    So stop your damn crying.

    Damn its a shame.Sai really had talent.

    He wasnt even here for that shit he claims.If he was he wouldnt have been so selfish as to walk away because he “couldnt take the fake dudes out there” Bullshit. People like Jay are fucking huge, dealt with all this shit, and still manage to throw a positive message out there.

    Your full of it Saigon.You had everything you couldve hoped for in this rap game.Talent with lyrics, good at making songs, an amazing producer, but fuck it you cant take the pressure huh?

    If he’s signed to a record contract, quitting might not be that easy like he thinks. Lawsuits and what not, you cant just come and go as you please when you sign a legal document. It’ll be intresting to see how this plays out with just blaze and them, but then again it doesnt seem like his album was ever coming out anyway

  • fLIP BEATS

    time is coming now for those who r going to start really become real with life and really start doing HIPHOP for the of ghetto across the u.s. and the world . they know their no publicity and no money just hard work to speck for the people and soul . to quote the teacher KRS-ONE mc mean to be a rebel , renegade, against the system that out to hold you back and to destroy from this planet. because the truth of who our people are in this universe… peace 360

    This mutherfucker contradicts every damn comment he puts out, he’s one of those stupid smart dudes. He keeps talking about rappers should be more positive, then he’s out there doing and rhyming about everything negative more than most others, wtf ? This cats on a mix bag of narcotics and tangeray and obviously can’t handle the doseage.

    Keep preaching positivity and continue to be the most negative ? I guess that’s a good look.

  • Duke

    ya saigons rite about all that shit, but hes the only hope we have left at this point, if he reeli quits theres no hope for rap, theres a good amount of pple that are nice today that are semi underground and all they need is a leader, sumbody to say fk the system and go against this pop bullshit, a pac figure, and saigon has the lyrical skill, and the brain to be that leader and change the bullshit world we live in, hopefully he doesnt give up. if he reeli beleives in all this in his heart this wont be the last we hear of saigon

    i called it a long time ago. saigon was going to quit. every interview i read from day one of young blood he was complaing about something. he was madd at mobb deep , madd at jadakiss for what they rappeed about and he followed . every website treated him like god. mr saigon quits the game b4 getting the message to the kids. that why i always talk shit about these rappers. alot of them he a source of light they never tapped in to . i talk shit about them cause i want them to do better .and for saigon you let the devil beat you . like nas said rap became the version of molcom and martian .

  • duke

    saigon mite be the only rapper out rite now that has the potential to change this bullshit we hear today. the people that look at him as a negative figure dont understand the message behind his music, like what a life, or true story and that, they jus look at his so called “gangsta” tracks and call him a bad role model, mybe if parents raised there kids to be thinking human beings they could get that hes discouraging them from doin that not encouraging them, but nowadays its cool to be stupid and listen to stupid music, but saigon is raps last hope to come bck. if in his heart he loves this shit and feels about it the way i do, this wont the last we hear of saigon, hes jus tight rite now so obviously he gona say sum shit he gota get off his chest, but hopefully he makes the rite move and dnt let rap get any worse than it is rite now, otherwise i aint having a kid in this world the way it is now, shits jus too fked up, kids havin sex at 10 and 12 and shit, all that shit is just too much, jus by havin a kid these days ur a bad parent, cause u cnt stop ur kids from hearing this stupidity on the radio, we need a change, and a person ready to step up and change shit, regardless of how hard and hoepless it mite seem

    Somebody tell the Yardfather to pull his skirt down and man the fuck up.

And although I do feel you on the majority of your comments, I also feel Is a publicity stunt to generate some sales. Hey, whatever it takes I guess.

  • Keep It real

    That was one of the realest interviews
    ever. Man I still remember when 2pac did his interivew and was on the rolling stone magazine. Everybody can’t handle all the negativity that goes along with being in the rap game. I wish Saigon well and I hope he find another way to make money except the streets.
    I never was really abig fan of Saigon, but everything he said was the truth…it kind of remind me of Pimp C inteview on Atlanta. Alot of things he said was the truth, but people was pissed at Pimp C for the comments.Stop the violence and the negativity!!!!

    I try to give a nigga a chance to eat and this the type of shit they do, this is why I don’t sign NY acts, I want all the fucking re-coupable money back, give me that fucking chain back, i don’t give a fuck if you wear it or not, I’ll cut my feature off the weak ass single and ya album will still be released, that way we can legally come for that ass if you dont ante up that front cash, but I’ll still hit you with the shit thats lessed stepped on than Brittany, thats what you do anyway, so you can still work for me, dig me!!!

    He can’t quit rap!

    There isn’t much room for a homophobic 5 foot tall overly-aggresive crybaby in the workforce.

    Besides his new album sounds promising, can’t wait to hear the full thing in 3 years.

  • Latino Heat

    im hoping this is a publicity stunt. i was thinking this morniing as i was flippin through my cd book full of bullshit, only a couple more weeks till saigon drops. now i read this bullshit. come on sai, you cant do this theres only a handfull of real dope mc’s left and your one of them. if the album does drop dec. 4th, all the real fans need to go to the store and show support that we really do need this dude in the game. alot of rappers have “quit” or retired before they always come back. your a public figure now homie it comes with the territory. people are always gonna try and tear you down.

  • reza

    Saigon is what rap is…fuck the quotable shoulda gave him the line of modern time

  • j

    NO, PLEASE NO, SAI. By far you are one the most talented rappers to hit the scene EVER. Some of the realist shit spit to date. Don’t quit because of the media. Keep rapping because major labels keep giving us garbage. AKA Soulja Boy. Fuck Everyone – I’m with you. Now every stupid ass internet thug can say hip hop is dead and be right about it.
    FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK

    I fell what the man is talking about and totally understand him. Do what pleases you! Supportive!

    Failiure is somebody who never tried. At the same time, Who the hell am I to tell you what to do man? If it was me, I woulda felt the same way. People on this blog and in NY don’t give a fuck if you turn up missing tomorrow. The game is mad fickle like that son. I just hope you aint make no hasty decisions though.

    Maybe you really need to learn how to deal with the industry shit. I’m sure people got a lot to say bout Kanye, but what would the game be without his music right now. I’d look at it like that. You never know who you could touch, sometimes you just gotta keep going for us as black people cause you put in a position to do so, when we can’t keep going for ourselves.

  • BKstl

    if he gone he should have no problem letting the album be dropped so let it be dropped, bet if it gets mad reviews/sales hell be back in the studio like “i didnt know what i was giving up and how much people really need to hear this” niggas who have mad talent and have the chance to drop an album and never do is a fucking waste, dont be one sai
