Born in Brooklyn but raised in Rockland County, New York’s Saigon has been a formidable force in Hip-Hop for awhile. Earlier in his career, Saigon signed to Just Blaze’s Fort Knocks imprint after Just Blaze identified what he considered an “atypical rapper” to start his label with.
Fast forward to now the New York emcee recently inked a deal with Travis O’ Guin and revered Hip-Hop great Tech N9ne’s ‘Struggle Music Inc‘. Tech N9ne announced the signing on his Instagram.
To accompany the great news Saigon released a new single and video “Bullets-19.” It is the first release from Sai’s anticipated Street Runner produced album “777: The Resurrection” which will be released on 8-28-20.
In his powerful new visual, Saigon addresses the recent surge of gun violence that has taken place in communities of color across the country since we’ve entered the unpredictable times of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“When children can’t go outside and play without potentially getting shot, you know we have a problem. Right now, we’re dealing with two pandemics, one is Covid-19 and the other is the spread of even more bullets killing Black and Brown people across the country as this recent surge of gun violence continues. As a community of color, we must take control of creating and implementing solutions to bring an end to this ourselves and if you’re not part of the solution, then you’re in the way.”Saigon on the current gun violence that is sweeping the nation
