Rapper Saigon unleashed his frustration at the current climate in hip hop in a lengthy interview with SOHH. Sai singled out rappers like Rick Ross and Big Sean for releasing music that he feels is sub-par and non-reflective of the times and the current state of the community.
Why ya'll supportin' a ni**a that promotes the destruction of our community?" questioned Saigon." Why are you doin' that? Why would you let this ni**a thrive and we don't know where our next jobs are coming from? He's rapping about selling kilos of cocaine and selling drugs. This is what he's about, this whole lifestyle saying he's so rich and he eats shrimp every night, and ya'll support this sh*t?"
"Ya'll broke and poor and your family's about to get kicked out," he continued. "That's our hit son! That's his hit. Nobody knows the words to this song, all they know is "ass, ass, ass, ass, ass, ass, ass" [background noises]. We don't care about "ass, ass, ass, ass," but this is the society we livin' in right now. So it's like alright."
