For years Saigon has been regarded as one of the most ferocious, charismatic and intelligent MCs currently handling a microphone. The problem was, he didn’t have much to show for it. Until now.
Saigon’s The Greatest Story Never Told very nearly lived up to its title. Years and years of label wrangling, delays and various other circumstances have conspired to prevent the MC’s long-awaited official debut from actually dropping. But now, almost four years since it was initially supposed to drop, this New York MC’s tale will finally be heard.
And “The Greatest Story Never Told” is a fitting first single. As Saigon says, this is “Chapter One, verse one.” The video is a vivid and often amusing look at Saigon’s life and recording process, following him through the streets of New York and into the famous Bassline Studio, home of Saigon’s producer Just Blaze and scene of many a Jay-Z recording session.
Check out the video below. Saigon’s The Greatest Story Never Told is due out in February. (Finally!)
