Saigon Responds to Joe Budden’s “Letter:” “Whenever I See JB, I’m Beating Him Up”

Saigon has already responded to a diss track aimed at him by New Jersey rapper Joe Budden in a video clip that hit the net today.

During an interview with, the Yardfather spoke on Budden’s track, “A Letter to Saigon,” and seemed ready to go to war. “He want me to bite his head off,” Sai said. “I told niggas on ‘Stocking Cap,’ ‘I’m not a battle rapper but I’ll take this razor and run this shit across you’re fucking Adam’s apple.’ But I’m gonna battle this nigga just to show him that lyrically he’s not in my league. Never been, never will be I’m gonna bite his fucking head off.“[Watch Below]

Sai, who is known for his history of violence, said that the next time he see’s JB he’s going to beat him up.

The beef between the two emcees started in 2007 when Budden said a line in a BET freestyle poking fun at Saigon’s fight with Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy.

On “A Letter to Saigon” Budden addressed the situation: “Seems like in every interview niggas wanna mention dude/ Took my good punchline, got it misconstrued/ “Ain’t diss you then but nigga now I will/ I’m just saying how I feel/ Got your camera showing off your tiny town house and your girl car/ Cause you ain’t a real star /Not even on WorldStar/ the Greatest Story Never Told won’t be ever told/ Mixtapes never sold/ leak the shit let it go.” [Listen Here]

In related news, after being silent for most of last year, Saigon recently announced his comeback through his MySpace blog. “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 has an upcoming mixtape coming out soon called Warning Shots 2, while the release of Budden’s sophomore CD Padded Room drops on February 24th via independent label Amalgam Digital. – Elan Mancini
