In a dramatic MySpace post titled “I Quit,” Saigon announced that he’s officially done with rap music. Sai railed against the music industry and the media for being fake and exploitative.
“This sh*t is too fake for me,” he griped in the blog post. “I found myself getting caught up in the bullshit but now Ill gladly walk away.”
He continued: “F**k this bum a** rap game anyway, its full of fake a** n****s who pump poison to the kids, make a few dollars and act like they’re larger then life when they know their music is detrimental to their fucking communities, If it ain’t about sex, its about drugs or violence, where are the songs about getting an education, or being responsible parents and sh*t, or stopping the gang violence.”
Some may say that Saigon left the game prematurely. In case anyone has questions about his musical achievements, he contends that he left plenty of good music that attest to his lyrical prowess. “I left enough great music behind for people to understand I was good at rapping, that’s all I ever wanted out of it.”
Saigon’s Atlantic debut, The Greatest Story Never Told, has been postponed several times. Last we checked, it was scheduled for release in 2008. There’s no word on whether that album will still see the light of day.
