Saigon - Trans-Atlantic Slave Deal

Posted 7 years ago
Tags: Saigon
Producer:

Album:
Warning Shots 2: The Mixtape

It’s an all-too-common story in today’s music industry: a rising star is seduced by major-label promises of fame and fortune, only to find himself tied down to a contract that has him going nowhere fast.  If you’ve been following Saigon, you already know that the Brooklyn emcee is happy to be free from the Atlantic Records deal that prevented him from bringing new music to his hungry fanbase, but you may not be aware of the extent to which the rapper was mismanaged and artistically stifled, or the legal action he had to undertake in order to escape from his contract.  In addition to recounting his experiences in detail on a must-read MySpace blog post, Saigon has released a Scram Jones-produced mixtape cut called Trans-Atlantic Slave Deal, on which he skewers President Julie Greenwald, who shelved the artist when he refused to inject his music with explicit sexuality and glorified gangsterism, as well as dispelling rumors that he was “dropped” from the label against his wishes.  This powerful cut, as well as plenty more new material from Saigon (now signed to Just Blaze‘s Fort Knocks) can be found on the forthcoming Warning Shots 2: The Mixtape.
