Saigon showed he is on board with the end the war on drugs campaign in his newly released song “Drugs”. Saigon joined up with In Arms Reach and the Drug Policy Alliance to bring us a track on the 40th Anniversary of Richard Nixon’s declaration of war on drugs. He raps about his disdain of the policy that has proved to be a failure in the United States as well as its unfortunate negative effects on the Black and Hispanic communities.
Here's a treat for hardcore hip-hop heads out there. Saigon, one of Brooklyn's finest, has dropped a jewel on ya'll. "Mechanical Animals" is a beast of a track, featuring a stacked lineup which includes the legendary Kool G. Rap, Marcy alumni Memphis Bleek, and Chiraq's Lil Bibby. Safe to say you better brace yourself because all four MCs deliver stellar verses. Get at it after the jump.
what is cultural memory? news stories and internet videos are 3-minute clips. toddlers of the millennium can use a tablet before they know how to speak; instant fame has shrunk from the designated fifteen minutes to a few. the cycle goes: reality show star to porn debutante to burnt-out addict in 2 years. simply put, we're tired of remembering so we gave up on it.
More songs like this need to be made.
After you finish giving thanks alongside Sai and Lecrae, head over this way to check the video interview we did with Lecrae.
Here's Saigon preaching the realness, as usual.
