Saigon Talks Updated ‘Greatest Story Never Told’ Release

The greatest story will finally be told. After nearly half a decade of delays, Saigon’s official debut album, The Greatest Story Never Told, will finally be hitting shelves on February 15, 2011. Set to come out on Suburban Noize Records, the project will see Just Blaze, Sway Calloway and Rich Nice serve as executive producers.

Saigitty is also going to release an eight-track EP in the coming weeks in order to whet the listening palettes of his fans in anticipation of the release of his long-awaited LP. Beginning next week, The Yardfather and his camp plan to drop a new single and video for the next five weeks, leading up to the release of the lead single for the album.

“I got everything planned out; it ain’t no more starting and stopping,” said the former XXL Leader of the New School cover subject. He also gave a few details on the album, telling, “It’s been a long journey. We just tweaking The Greatest Story Never Told—updating it. Put a few [new] records on it. Black Thought just got added to the album.”

Sai will also embark on a 20-city tour, beginning on November 4 in Bellingham, WA. Along with Canadian group Swollen Members, he will hit much of the West Coast, including stops in Oregon, California, Utah, Nevada and Colorado. Then, in January, the Brooklyn-born spitter plans to embark on an East Coast tour to promote the album. —Adam Fleischer

    Who the fuck is “Saigon”? Crybaby never-was with jillion more excuses than brains or talent. Dude should do himself and his family a favor and go back to school and learn a trade because music ain’t his fucking bag.

  • Don mcCaine

    I was just sayin how this nigga was in a class of cats that prob never droppin his album ( Papoose, Jae Millz etc) Good for him! It’s been a long time coming..

    I was fuckin with his first few joints, Pain in my life and Cmon Baby and I think dude gave Joe Buddens a run for his money on dem dis tracks. So I’ll be checkin for Sai’s debut, also anything with Black Thought on it gotta be dope, imo.

  • QU

    This shit is gonna get pushed back again. Matter fact, I bet this nigga never even made an album. He keeps saying this shit is supposed to be one of the greatest hip hop albums ever made but he knows he cant live up to that shit. Faggot.

  • Sigh Gone

    You gotta be consistent and dropping the occasional solid mixtape while never putting out an album is not consistent.

  • Bears Fan For Life

    Hey honestly. This nigga is whack. He can’t sell records with his shirt off posted with the baby oil. Why is it that somebody who can actually spit a bar or two like Joell Ortiz not getting the props he deserves. That nigga is the best rapper in New York at the moment!
