    Man what r u guys talking about?? budden was the one that went up to Saigon saying they should make a song together. Saigon dont need no one. He's been dropping sick shit since his beginning, and now that he has a chance to do it big u guys start hating. Bunch of fags.

    "I suck Joe Budden's cock." -- Saigon

  • I'm white and love hip hop!!!

    I guess I won't pick this up or any hip hop album ever again and I will make sure to get all my white friend's also to do the same and we wil destroy and burn all our music that is't heavy metal or country. SCOTTIE MINOR'S comment is so true it changed me and I know hip hop is only for black people. Lol you need to fuck off and die!!! You ignorant asshole. You'll be the first to pull the race card and the beauty of hip hop is it is Universal and wanna know something I listen to rock also and I have never heard them pull the race card and say it's for white people only. Look at NYC HARDCORE and HIP HOP a lot of the emcees and bands came up together back then and both genres had a similar message why do you think Public Enemy, RUN DMC, NWA,ICE CUBE etc. All collabed with people in rock?? New York Hardcore is pretty much aggressive rapping over guitars and a band with the same subject matter as P.E or N.W.A or NAS. I hate when people say white people shouldn't buy a album cause it's not for White People, I'm sure Saigon made this album just for black people and doesn't want white people hearing it or buying it. SCOTTIE MINOR you should become a rapper it's easy enough these days it seems and you can speak your Bullshit and let's see who agrees with your content. Don't be ignorant, racism is still alive and it sucks that it is but don't be part of the reason it is still here and alive in places. Saigon's a dope emcee who say's real shit in his rhymes real everyday people can relate to and when I buy this album I highly doubt Saigon is going to be disappointed that more white people will probably purchase his album and go to shows, you ever been to a Wu Tang show or even Dead Prez?? There's actually more white people HIP HOP IS UNIVERSAL and that's why it's still here. Support Saigon!!! BTW The label dropping Saigon's album is owned by Kottonmouth Kings and there a white stoner hip hop group/band and out of every label they are the ones who put up what was needed to get Saigon's album finally so chew on that shit SCOTTIE MINOR.

  • Timbo

    I just lost respect for Saigon. As soon as Joe Budden and Slaughterhouse sign with Em and Shady he ups and kisses Joe's ass? This my friends is a brown nosing, dick riding sell out. Actually, he's brown nosing to try to sell out. He don't want any beef with Shady the talent is to deep. Aye Saigon, wipe that shit off your nose

    @ Scottie Major Jay Z said hip hop is universal. Every race listen to hip hop. Jay said it kind takes away on racism

  • The Ice Cold Phenom

    Based on the snippets, it's 4.5 stars. The album is hot! 18 tracks is a bit much though. He should drop it down to 13 or 14 of the hottest tracks and provide the rest as bonus material or not at all. The 18 tracks are watering down a potential GREAT album.

  • mr718

    Saigon is that nigga cant wait for the album cause hes been nice since his days on the show ENTOURAGE

  • Anonymous

    for the life of me can't figure out why they shelved this album.

  • Del

    My Word!!! Those snippets sound like this going to be THE ALBUM to beat this year. Defo feeling it!!

  • another real head

    haha scottie. you just wrote an entire essay on how whack white people are LOLLLLLL...come to the suburbs...we tie you up and tortue your ignorant ass. and no one would care..because you aren't white. the truth is...black people are really worthless...they are for our entertainment.. doing rap songs and playing all these sports we can bet on and shit...come on...black people? you serious? lol....I love Saigon.

  • phil

    Scottie Minor....your a fucking racist it goes both ways ya know

  • Scottie Minor

    white people still feel they can comment on hip hop... how can u comment on something if its not a part of your culture... white people try so hard to be black.. you know how stupid u look when u try and act and dress black... they made a movie making fun of white people trying to be black (malibu most wanted)... how does it feel to listen to something u can't relate to... for an example.. when you listen to nas (second childhood)or (destroy & rebuild) or too short (the ghetto)or watch (boyz n the hood)... how can a white person relate to any of those... you cant really get into the song white people because u dont go through what they rapping about... u got some white people on here commenting saying they live in the hood... first off lets define (hood)... just cause you or yor boyz slang a lil crakk and hang on the corner (thats not the hood).... just cause u and yor boyz own a gun (thats not tha hood).... just cause one of yor boyz got murked (thats not tha hood)... jus cause u shot someone (thatz not the tha hood)... know in the real hood . the housing authority... when a white person walks through the projects.. everybody starts looking at him for to rob him or sell him drugs.. when a white person shows up in my hood or housing authority .. everbody jus stop and look with they mouth open... cause they gonna either rob that muthafuker or serve him... i seen a thousand times a white wigga come in the hood trying to black and get hiz goofy azz robbed... whu got that (hood 2 hood)dvd... they go through every hood in the united states jus about.. not one white person on the whole dvd... lol lol lol.... to all the white people trying to be black ... hip hop is for black race created by the black race... go look at a paul wall video and look at the way he moves his body trying to look black .. that shit never comes out right.. cause white people have no Rhythm.... thats like the funnyiest thing when whites act or dance black lol lol lol lol lol

    • scottie minors a idiot

      It's funny that Surburban Noize is owned by Kottonmouth Kings and they are the ones putting what is needed to finally have Saigon's album drop. So should Saigon not do it cause they are white?? Fucking idiot. Your the type to call racism and how you get singled out and blah blah blah but you are part of the reason RACISM STILL EXISTS and I can bet the main reason you pull the race card is because you see some white emcees coming up in the game grinding and doing shows and working hard for there spot coming up and your little mixtape you made in your room no one is buying from you or downloading or giving you props on and your so insecure you hate to see Hip Hop as Universal Music and Culture and anyone can make it with hard work and dedication. White people have no rhythm?? Lol that's like saying Black People can't play guitar and never should cause more white people play guitar in bands so only white people should play guitar lol. White,Black,Asian,Spanish,Russian or Alien from Mar's you are a closed minded ignorant moron. If you get singled out cause of your race ever don't get mad just remember your a part of why it's still here and Karma is a bitch. BTW send me your new groundbreaking Mixtape so Jay-Z can sign you and Michael Jackson and Tupac and Biggie can resurrect and dead their beef and become great friends again all because of your amazing music that is on GOD'S LEVEL. I bet your music is so good people would buy a blank cd with your albums name written on it, it's that Powerful I bet. Idiot......

    • Seányg

      wow! didnt hitler have the same type of opinion in relation to human race. Now its you with music? haha you joke, why should you care? Do you know the people in eastern europe who are predominantly white probably listen to hiphop music the most!

      this nigga got laid off from walmart and is all pissy. what a bitchass

    • Anonymous93

      I'm white and listen to rap. No, not Lil Wayne, Gucci Mane, Drake, Plies etc. I'm talking Pharoahe Monch, The Roots, Nas, Jay Electronica, Shad, Blu, Fashawn, Common, J-Live, Kendrick Lamar, Murs, Talib Kweli...well you get the point. I have never touched crack or a gun. I don't wear chains or own a pair of Jordans. What you have created, Scottie, is a stereotype. That's the same thing blacks hate white people for. So why should you be able to say something like that and not me? Why would I be called racist. Listening to music with substance, like the artists that I listed, is like reading a book (something you nothing about). They put pain, sadness, or struggle in their music at times. That's what people relate to. People in the ghetto aren't the only ones going through some sh*t right now.

    • Lafayette

      Wow, this is sad, especially on MLK day. Music belongs to everyone and if you feel that it doesn't then your just a close one track minded individual that sounds like a racist.

  • Eric Evans

    1. ABOUT TIME 2. HOW did he get JAY Z on there? 3. HOW did you get Just blaze to do his tracks?

    • the poet

      to answer that question in depth...saigon has been working with just blaze for years...he wasnt signed to his label they are friends & have a working relationship...just was helping him get his deal which evebtually turned out to be atlantic(which didnt work out) just blaze produced cmon baby for saigon but jay-z heard it & wanted the beat....just gave the beat to jay-z & jay-z ended up not using it....so jay-z to make up to saigon for jacking his track put a 16 on the song & told saigon he could keep it

    • A.S.

      Yeah, Saigon got connected to Jay-Z via Just Blaze. And besides, that song was released years ago, the C'mon Baby remix.

    • The Critic

      You must don't know Sai was signed to Just Blaze lil label.. and that song wit Jay-Z is old as hell.. Where the hell u been dude!!!

    • Lankh

      2. Jigga's a billionman but I think he often wants to show his streetness isn't dead. 3. Blaze has worked on some Saigon's street albums and tapes. I think they're friends.

  • Its Um

    Is this all the track from orginal project or just some old some new type thing?

      Who the hell cares about Joe Budden right now? Saigon's album has nothing to do with him or beef? So why are you bringing him up on this man's moment? They both moved on with life. Why can't you? Let it go already. Anyway, I'll be picking up the album. Been a long time since I cared about purchasing a Hip Hop album.
