Album First Listen: Saigon’s The Greatest Story Never Told

By | 31 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2009/09/saigon-just-blaze-gotta-believe-it-vide"> In 2011, this is as close to a "Roll Call" as you're going to get. Annnd, in 2011, this could be considered the first noteworthy Hip-Hop full-length record to get the ball rolling; set the standard for where the beats, rhymes and life should be propelled to elevate the music standard in the commercial district. (You hear that Dre?). You've seen a little bit, and heard a few more but holy taco Batman, this is the full enchilada we're dealing with. Kanye West, Jay-Z, Marsha Ambrosius and some guy named Just Blaze (?) all help Saigon finally get his Greatest Story told and sold on 2.15.11. Three years ago, some of you current skeptics' heads would have exploded like that White supremacist on that Dave Chappelle skit. But since we're all here, how does it sound? If we're taking prop bets, how many <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/ratings">Cigs</a> will TSS Crew dole out for it.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/11/kanye-west-feat-jay-z-thats-my-bitch"> Kanye West may have spoiled and catered to the innernuts in the same fashion he does his bottom bishes: a little too much. Instead of reveling in the joys that My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is <a href="http://www.amazon.com/My-Beautiful-Dark-Twisted-Fantasy/dp/B003X2O6KW/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1290465469&sr=1-1">in stores NOW</a> for your tangible enjoyment, they'd rather pilfer through unmastered wav.
