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?

Lecrae

Christian Hip Hop artist, Lecrae spits on the Best Thing I found. Look for a light of hope. #respect

Lecrae

The Best Thing That I Found is going to be one of the most popular songs on this album. #Unashamed

Saigon is DOPE!!!

There are a lot of people saying they only know this b/c of Lecrae but this is Saigon's album. Saigon is a real rapper and really lyrical. He isn't like that crap you hear on the radio and he's more than just a rapper he is trying to influence a generation from being messed up like the rest of society. Much love! I'm out!

Biography

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...
