Album Review

If his official debut painted Saigon as the stern, serious man that could save rap, The Greatest Story Never Told, Chapter 2: Bread and Circuses suggests he could still save it, but maybe with a little love and flash. In contrast to the darkness found on Chapter 1, the opening "Plant the Seed (What U Paid For)" kicks this one off with a jazzy beat and hope for tomorrow, as if Common's grace had paid Saigon a visit and he took it under serious consideration. "Who the heck is listening, if everybody rappin'?" is the simple question here, while "Brownsville Girl" (nostalgia for the old days, and wondering what happened to socially consciousness lyrics in the mainstream) and "The Game Changer" (more sweet jazz and literate lines point to a better tomorrow) further the topic and make this a near concept album. Still, the beats are as varied and well selected as the guest list which counts Styles P, Chamillionaire, Marsha Ambrosius, and Lecrae amongst its most desirable guest shots. A couple more albums this rich and Saigon might actually save the game, begging the question: then what will he rap about?

Customer Reviews

This will be the greatest story told!

Lyrics, lyrics, lyrics. Not much hip-hop has lyrics with any meaning or substance behind it. This is the exact opposite of that, and not surprising coming from the Yardfather. None of this constant talk about jewelry or money or vivid explanations of murder, Saigon resuscitates hip-hop with this album. We'll see how long it survives

This rap is real

Saigon comes with it, front to back his rhyme makes a statement, not just drugs and hoes, I love it

Best new rap

This is how hip hop should sound. With All that new bullish** out there this is some real great stuff

Biography

Born: July 13, 1977 in Brooklyn, NY

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Analogous to mixtape kingpins 50 Cent and Papoose, Saigon rose to prominence within hip-hop's top ranks, particularly in New York, on unofficial singles and mixtapes alone. Politically conscious and street-smart, the rapper became a formidable force when he was taken under the wing of Roc-A-Fella Records' in-demand producer Just Blaze, who shared his passion for early-'90s hip-hop. Born in Brooklyn but raised in Rockland County, New York, Saigon (aka Brian Carenard) developed his deft rhyming skills...
