Last week, SOHH.com published our exclusive interview with Saigon in which he criticized Maybach boss Rick Ross and Big Sean. Saigon responded by denying he made the comments and denouncing the SOHH article. Now, SOHH.com has released the full, unedited audio of the interview, where Saigon can be heard talking to SOHH about Rozay and Big Sean and continues with his feelings about the gay “gimmick,” Kim & Kanye and more.
SOHH.com originally reached out to Saigon to discuss with him his participation in Lil Kim‘s May 18th comeback concert in the Bronx last week but, without being prompted, Saigon eagerly turned the conversation towards other topics including his disdain for the quality of music coming out of Rick Ross’ Maybach Music camp.
“You can put all this sh*t on your site because I don’t give a f*ck. I don’t give a f*ck because at this point, I’ve made up my mind. I made up my mind that I’m taking a whole different approach. … Rick Ross and all these n*ggas rapping about drug dealing, all the sh*t that f*cks up the black community, they’re not gonna be able to make no money. I’m gonna shut all their money down. Why ya’ll supportin’ a n*gga that promotes the destruction of our community? Why are you doin’ that? Why would you let this n*gga 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? and ya’ll broke and poor and your family’s about to get kicked out. 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.” (SOHH)
Despite the recorded remarks, Sai proceeded to deny ever calling out Rick Ross.
“Haha never a dull moment with these Hip Hop sites. The sh*t n*ggas do for a headline. Ross is my n*gga and I never singled him out abt the,” Sai tweeted May 25th.
“@rickyrozay Peace my N*gga, I have no idea where that bullsh*t on that website came from homie. U know its all love over here, alsways been”
“Regardless to what, Rozay is making some of the best music in Hip Hop and he came in with Hustling, would be stupid for me to speak on that”
“Om an outspoken person, ALways gonna speak my mind but @rickyrozay is my n*gga. Would be stupid for me to take a shot a n*gga I rocks with..” (Saigon’s Twitter)
The “Yard Father” then went on to insinuate that he was the victim of a falsified story.
“Im used to this sh*t so it doesnt bother me anymore. i dont even pay attn to what other n*ggas doing anymore.. I stay in my lane..”
“I just hate the negative energy. I dont care abt what the next man is doing. Im on the other side of the world right now doing what I do”
“Ross is one of the few niggas who ever extended his hand to me before. Mad love for @rickyrozay so with that said. Its a dead issue. MRA” (Saigon’s Twitter)
As previously stated, SOHH’s only intention for interviewing Sai was to get his “5 Reasons Why You Should” feature to promote Lil’ Kim’s May 18th New York City concert where he was also scheduled to perform.
Last night (May 18), Lil’ Kim brought her “Return of the Queen” tour to Bronx’s Paradise Theater for a comeback show that promised surprise guests as well as billed opening acts Saigon, Papoose, Cassidy and Shyheim. Her rolodex still runs deep, with rappers including Missy Elliott, Eve, Juelz Santana, host, “Mob Wives” star Drita D’Avanzo, and Fred Da Godson gracing the stage during the hourlong set. But despite several awkward pauses where she vanished backstage, the Brooklyn native carried the show, working the enraptured audience with a live band in tow. (Billboard)
Later in the interview, which went on for almost a half-hour, Sai also blasted the “gimmick” of being gay, the irrelevance of Kim Kardashian/Kanye West and reprimanded his dog for pooping on his floor, amongst other things.
