Hip-Hop Artist Saigon to Release Long-Awaited Debut Album


Hip Hop fans and curious bystanders of rapper Saigon can finally hear the efforts of the anticipated album, “The Greatest Story Never Told.”  The long awaited project will be released on Just Blaze’s label Fort Knock Entertainment in conjunction with Abandoned Nation/Suburban Noize Records and available for purchase early 2011. The passionate artist exploded onto the music scene only a few years ago with classic mixtapes, singles and street albums such as “Warning Shots“.  He’s surrounded himself with hip hop heavyweights such as super producer Just Blaze and Jay-Z.  You’ve seen his charismatic self on the hit HBO show, “Entourage” that increased his fan-base and interest to know more about Saigon.

His album features guest appearances by hip hop legend, Bun B, Q-Tip, Marsha Ambrosius and Faith Evans.  Saigon wisely selected super producers Just Blaze, Kanye West, Buck Wild and Red Spyda to culminate his debut masterpiece.  “I’m just finally happy that people are going to hear my music”, says Saigon.  Just Blaze also serves as the project’s Executive Producer in addition to Rich Nice (Ludacris, NAS) and radio and television personality Sway Calloway (The Wake Up Show, MTV).  “It’s time to get focused, this is a serious project put ya game face on” says Just Blaze.

In support of the album, Saigon will hit the road with Canadian group, Swollen Members for a 30-city tour beginning November 4 in Bellingham, WA.  Dates are listed below.  Swollen Members hail from Vancouver, British Columbia and have been called “two of the most innovative people in hip hop” in the Rough Guide in Hip Hop.  The upcoming tour is an exciting collaboration of the two acts that are planning on delivering high energy and quality much in each city that they perform.
