Speculation has begun to grown on his late mother's age.
Saigon has announced the death of his mother yesterday (Monday, October 19) at 1pm. The death comes less than two week after the emcee released his latest album Warning Shots 2. Saigon's mother was reportedly younger than 50 years old. The details of her passing are reportedly medical, but have not been specified. (Hip Hop DX)
The rapper also has a song called "Fatherhood" which speaks on the importance of being a good dad.
Parenting has been a big issue with Saigon recently. On Warning Shots 2, which came out a couple weeks ago, one of the songs is "Fatherhood" - a heartfelt dedication to his daughter and the incredible feeling that a father gets while watching his baby girl grow. (The Boom Box)
Mos Def recently defended Kanye West after being asked questions about his late mother by television host Jay Leno in light of last month's Video Music Awards outburst.
"And Jay Leno, with your banana boat face having a**, you need to apologize to Kanye West for having him with his mother [would say], what she would think, she would think she'd need to smack your f*cking banana face-having a** face off trying to be slick...," he said during a concert performance.
