Earlier today, Saigon explained to ThisIs50 the origins of his infamous fistcuffs with Mobb Deep’s Prodigy. Now, in a recent interview with Power 105.1, the New York emcee names a few other artists he would like to put hands on while he’s at it.
Sai-Giddy named Rick Ross and 2 Chainz as two rappers who he would like to punch in the face if given the chance. He explained that the content of their music is dangerous for younger people and should be treated as the equivalent of pornography. He added that while Rozay and 2 Chainz may be the first two names that came to his mind, the industry is rife with artists who he feels display the same tendencies.
“That’s behind me [punching other artists] – you know what, if they don’t change the message though, [I would punch someone] for real,” he said. “I would want to punch everybody – Rick Ross, 2 Chainz, everybody who’s [making] detrimental music for children, man. These companies market the music to children, and y’all know that. If you’re going to do that [kind of music]…you know when you go in a movie store, the porno section had its own little section? Do that for this music because this is marketed to children and we know that…I’ve got kids, man. I’m not trying to have to battle with my own kid because she’s influenced by [these artists]. I did ‘106 & Park’ the other day, and I was so sad to see these little young girls spitting the lyrics and some of the stuff that was coming out their mouths and they’re 13 or 14, and they’re talking sucking dick and doing all this. I’m like, ‘God damn, yo, who’s responsible for all this?”
He added, “It ain’t just pin-pointing Rick Ross and 2 Chainz and them niggas; everybody’s doing it. Put them all on a dart board and throw the dart…for me to find progressive rap, I’ve got to search high and low.”
