Saigon Brings Conscious Hip-Hop to Billboard Charts

Conscious Hip-Hop returns to Billboard Top 100 as Saigon's The Greatest Story Never Told lands on sales charts alongside Eminem, Lil Wayne, and Kanye West

2011 Strange Noize Tour Dates Announced

Despite a lengthy 5 year hiatus, Saigon finally released his highly anticipated debut album, The Greatest Story Never Told, and was welcomed by a massive outpouring of fans hungry for conscious hip-hop. The album quickly shot to the top of the sales charts alongside Eminem, Lil Wayne, and Kanye West, while Saigon dominated the iTunes hip-hop sales charts for the week. Critics have already begun calling The Greatest Story Never Told one of the best hip-hop albums of 2011, as rave reviews pour in from The Source, HipHopDx, Village Voice, AllHipHop, and IGN.

"I'm very thankful to all those that went out and supported me by picking up a copy of The Greatest Story Never Told in stores or on iTunes. After all the struggles I've had trying to get this record out, it's the best feeling in the world to know you have fans that will support you unconditionally," commented Saigon. "I never in my wildest dreams thought I would ever see my record up there on the Billboard charts right alongside all the major players in the game. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting Saigon and helping score a victory for conscious hip-hop music."

Saigon's The Greatest Story Never Told was produced primarily by Just Blaze, the talented producer behind smash hits for Jay-Z, Eminem and T.I. The disc also features contributions from Jay-Z & Swizz Beatz ("Come On Baby"), Faith Evans ("Clap") and Kanye West and former Floetry member Marsha Ambrosius ("It's Alright").

Saigon will be joining the 2011 Strange Noize Tour set to kick off this spring. The 3rd annual Strange Noize Tour brings together artists from two powerhouse record labels, Strange Music and Suburban Noize. With performances from artists representing both labels, Saigon will be touring alongside Johnny Richter of the Kottonmouth Kings, Krizz Kaliko, Kutt Calhoun, Potluck and J Hornay.
