Saigon Speaks on Shelved Album, Beefs & Jay Electronica in Live XXL Interview [With Video]
Yesterday (June 30) Saigon stopped by the XXL offices for the second installment of our new weekly series, Channel Live, where we interview artists in real-time on Ustream.
In over an hour of candid yet laid back conversations, Sai opened up about both broad and specific themes. He spoke on his departure from Atlantic, his plans for The Greatest Story Never Told, and beef and lies within hip-hop. He also gave funny anecdotes, like when a pre-Eternal Sunshine Jay Electronica critiqued Sai’s raps in Just Blaze’s studio, or when a near-fight between he and Sticky Fingaz turned into a drunken night. Plus, he took many of the fans’ Ustream and Twitter questions.
You can watch the entire interview, split up into two separate videos, below. Be sure to check back to XXLMag.com later in the week for more info on next week’s guest on Channel Live. —XXL Staff
