Saigon Announces Comeback, “I’m Gonna Single-Handedly Reinvent Hip-Hop”
The former XXL magazine cover boy made headlines in 2007 when he publicly quit making music after issues with his label Atlantic Records. While later in the year he decided against retiring, the hip-hop community hardly head from the lyricist in ’08. Sai hopes to change that this year.
“Happy New Years Ya’ll.. It’s ya boy Saigon the Yardfather,” he wrote. “I’m back, better and stronger than ever. I greatly apologize for the lack of information I’ve been giving all the people who’s been keeping up with me… I promise to ya’ll this will be my hardest working year ever. I will be more active as far as the music I put out, interviews, acting, television shows, etc. Can you believe I only put out 3 songs in the whole year of ‘08? I pretty much took ‘08 off to get my personal life in order… Now I’m back and better than ever.”
Sai assured fans that he’s still working with Just Blaze and his unreleased album, The Greatest Story Never Told, will be coming out soon. Too start off ’09 he told fans he will be following up his mixtape Warning Shots.
“To show ya’ll I’m not playing I give ya’ll my first release of the New Year….. Warning Shots 2,” he shared. “I don’t know how many of you copped the first Warning Shots but this is the sequel and the music is much hotter…All brand new music produced by Just Blaze, Scram Jones, Buckwild and myself.”
Despite a quiet year, the Yardfather is confident in his skills: “I’m gonna single-handedly reinvent hip-hop…Watch!”
