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 supportinâ a nigga that promotes the destruction of our community? Why are you doinâ that? Why would you let this nigga thrive and we donât know where our next jobs are coming from?" he said. "Heâs rapping about selling kilos of cocaine and selling drugs. This is what heâs about, this whole lifestyle saying heâs so rich and he eats shrimp every night, and y'all support this shit? Y'all broke and poor and your familyâs about to get kicked out. Thatâs our hit, son! Thatâs his hit. Nobody knows the words to this song, all they know is âass, ass, ass, ass, ass, ass, ass.â [Background noises] We donât care about âass, ass, ass, ass,â but this is the society we livinâ in right now. So itâs like alright."

He tweeted,Â "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,Â "@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."
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.Â Check out the video below.
