The Road to A3C - Saigon

DJBooth is proud to announce that Shane Eli will be rocking on our stage for this year's A3C Festival in Atlanta. Born in Brooklyn, Saigon (aka Brian Carenard) credits an early life prison stint with both teaching him how to rap - he was largely known as "The Yardfather" - and the history of himself, his people and the world after intensively studying everything from militant black civil rights movements to European art.

upon his release Saigon quickly became one of the most sought after young artists in the game, landing on a host of prominent mixtapes and eventually being taken in under super-producer Just Blaze's wing and a signing to Atlantic Records. A spot on HBO's hit show Entourage built the hype around Saigon to a fever pitch, but his highly anticipated album The Greatest Story Never Told hit continuous delays. Finally, in February 2001, the album dropped to widespread critical acclaim, once again placing him at the top of the New York City hip-hop food chain.



If you'll be in the Atlanta area on Friday, October 7, you'll want to check out DJBooth's A3C stage, featuring Big K.R.I.T., Pill, Jean Grae, Saigon and many more. For all things A3C, including information on purchasing passes, check out A3CFestival.com.
