iTunes Review

There was a moment in time, in the mid-‘00s, when New York MC Saigon was generating a tremendous buzz, dropping popular singles and mix-tapes, signing to Atlantic, working with super-producer Just Blaze, and appearing on the hit TV show Entourage. It seemed all but certain that he was all set to become hip-hop's "next big thing." Except then he wasn't. Due to the usual suspects — label drama, bad timing, the Internet, premature retirement, etc., the album never dropped, and seemed forever destined to live up to its title. Five years later, it's finally out. Blaze's production is outstanding as usual, front-loaded with layers of horns, strings, pianos, vocal snippets, and exceptional drums, while the Yardfather sounds off about the state of the hood, crime and punishment, and the ladies. Rock-solid from start to finish, with V.I.P. guests like Devin the Dude ("What the Lovers Do"), Jay-Z ("Come On Baby"), Q-Tip ("The Invitation"), and more.

Excellent Debut, Dare I say worth the wait

I've been anticipating this album since I heard about it in 2006. After a few years I honestly forgot about it. Once I heard it was actually coming out I was excited, but didn't think it would match the hype. I was wrong. Saigon is a ridiculously talented MC. He brings back social awareness and political issues in a similar vein as pac. The production is among Just Blazes best. You absolutely won't be disappointed, support one of the great MC's of our time.

Born Lyricist

The lyrics r on point! Boy puts it down lyrically, Could use some better beats and hooks and my man would be unstoppable! Too long by far the best song on the album! GREAT MESSAGE!!


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...
