Saigon explains his side of the story regarding his harsh words about Rick Ross from the past week.
SOHH.Com originally posted the story, where Saigon asks why people are supporting Rick Ross, who encourages the destruction of the community:
"Why y'all supportin’ a nigga that promotes the destruction of our community? Why are you doin’ that? Why would you let this nigga thrive and we don’t know where our next jobs are coming from?" he said. "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 y'all support this shit? Y'all 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."

After Saigon got wind of this, he went on a Twitter rant claiming it was untrue, and that he has nothing but love for the Bawse.
He tweeted, "Ross is my nigga and I never singled him out abt the fucked up state of Hip Hop... 99% of the artist make that shit so it wouldnt make sense to single out Rick Ross...."
Sai continued, "@rickyrozay Peace my Nigga, I have no idea where that bullshit on that website came from homie. U know its all love over here, alsways been," he continued. "@rickyrozay I thought niggas was done using me to look like the the Disgruntled Postal Worker of rap.... Salute ya grind all day."
Ross know its all love and if he dont and got a problem with me, we'll address that accordingly. One Love Ya'll Got soundcheck...— Saigon (@TheRealSaigon) May 27, 2012
Following Saigon's claims that he never said such things, SOHH released the audio, which you can listen to below.
Finally, Saigon has clarified his remarks in a vlog, as well as previews a new song. He says he wasn't referring to Rick Ross alone, he was referring to a lot of people in general, and that this was a small snippet of the interview blown out of proportion. Check out the video below.
