Saigon has been a staple for more conscious Hip Hop in New York for quite some time and he has never been afraid to share his opinion about anything.
“I’m ready for that shit to go off the air all together, man,” he said when asked about the show. “It’s funny because, and I don’t want to sound like a hypocrite ’cause… My thing is I’ll try anything once if I think I can make it make sense. I thought that was the perfect demographic for my situation because there’s so many single mothers that watch that show who can’t even get they baby father on the phone. I figured I could show them an alternative like, ‘Yo, just because y’all don’t get along that has nothing to do with that baby. That baby should grow up with love surrounded by both parents.”
Saigon also talked about what he believes is self-destruction in Hip Hop. He details trying to lead a movement in making more positive music but a majority of rappers were too scared to be featured on it.
“I tried that. Niggas shunned away from me,” he explained. “I sent emails out [like], “Yo, [hop on this record].” Nobody wants to get on it. Niggas is scared man. We breed cowards. All these niggas is cowards. You never see me at no industry party, you don’t see me interacting with these niggas ’cause they fucking cowards.”
