Saigon Joins The Swollen Members For November Tour

New York and Vancouver connect, as Saigon joins the underground vets for a month-long tour through the northwest.

New York emcee Saigon has signed on to join veteran Vancouver, British Columbia collective the Swollen Members for a November tour. After releasing multiple projects last year, including an album recorded over a 24-hour window with deejay/producer Statik Selektah, All In A Day's Work, this will be Saigon's first national tour of 2010.

"It is a great honor for me to go on tour with Saigon," said Mad Child from Swollen Members in a statement. "He is simply one of the best emcees in the game, and is by far one of my favorite rappers. I usually don’t trip on meeting other emcees, but I am pretty excited to tour with him."

Last year, Swollen Members released Armed To The Teeth, which featured Tech N9ne, Talib Kweli and Everlast.

      kinda like i'm still hoping for his album to come out after at least 7 years of anticipating it

      the canadian border is notoriously strict about letting convicted felons into the country, especially rappers. i live in toronto and have suffered many times due to this fact. saigon's one of my favourite mc's, so i'm still hoping he'll come to canada some day

    Waits for the usual suspects to come in here, and talk about how irrelevant Saigon is. It never fails. Had to say that, cause it's going to happen. Anyway, back to the tour and music. The line up of dates look pretty good. Might even go to the one in my city. See, this is what Hip Hop is suppose to look like. It's not about fame or money all the time.
