Saigon - Aye, Aye, Aye

Tags: Saigon
Warning Shots 2

Perhaps the most widely-used vocal sound effect in hip-hop is “aye!”  Popularized by Juelz Santana, the interjection was ruined for many by its high-pitched repetition on nearly every track featuring OJ da Juiceman.  Now, though, one of hip-hop’s most underrated MCs has taken it upon himself to save that long vowel sound. This new street single finds Saigon at his most aggressive,  flowing over a vintage NYC-style beat by Buckwild as he asks the DJ to play that Aye Aye Aye. Whether the request will be accepted or denied depends on who you ask; though radio DJs might be unwilling to spin the part where Sai spits “...tear your f*ckin’ head off,” the Booth’s resident DJs will undoubtedly pick up the slack and give this track the rotation it deserves.  Those craving some more new Saigon won’t have to wait long—with the September 29th release of Warning Shots 2, the Booth favorite will finally be able to say he’s gotten a CD onto store shelves.
