C'mon Baby

The video to this joint has been out for a little over a year and yet I have never seen it until I decided to Google it. This is a quality track that should have gotten the shine it rightfully deserves. Yet what was burning up around the same time this joint came out?


Saigon's case is truly a damn shame. A man with some true talent with the potential to bring the NY back to the top where Biggie left it more than 10 years ago. Dude was teamed up with Just Blaze to produce his debut album The Greatest Story Never Told and was completed early this year. But Atlantic Records decided not to release the album for reasons that leave me dumbfounded and quite frankly pretty angry. What's sad is that Saigon ain't an isolated case. Look at Q-Tip or Ras Kass who have had TWO albums shelved. If I were an up and coming artist I wouldn't even bother trying to get a record deal. Keep it independent and make your money doing live shows. Don't let these CEO's make a dime off what you do. Fuck the record industry!

"And that's the triple truth...Ruth."
