Saigon Thanks Fans For Success Of 'Greatest Story Never Told'
Rapper Saigon recently spoke about his return to the Billboard's chartsÂ after a five-year lull in releasing albums.
Saigon's critically acclaimed album The Greatest Story Never Told landed in the Top 10 on Billboard's Rap Chart, bested only by a variety of rappers who already have albums out, including Lil Wayne and Eminem.
"I'm very thankful to all those that went out and supported me by picking up a copy of The Greatest Story Never Told' in stores or on iTunes," Saigon told AHH in a statement. "After all the struggles I've had trying to get this record out, it’s the best feeling in the world to know you have fans that will support you unconditionally.
"I never in my wildest dreams thought I would ever see my record up there on the Billboard Charts right alongside all the major players in the game. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting Saigon and helping score a victory for conscious hip-hop music."
The Greatest Story Never Told features guest appearances by Jay-Z, Kanye West, Faith Evans, Swizz Beatz, Marsha Ambrosius and others.
Saigon is currently gearing up for the Strange Noize Tour with label mates Krizz Kaliko, Kutt Calhoun, Potluck, J Hornay and others.
