Saigon Leaves Atlantic Records, Releases Second Single, Listen Here

Posted By on May 21, 2008

    Saigons album has been delayed and put off many many times, and now Saigon has officially had it. Recently he split with his label Atlantic Records, which he signed to in 2004. His only single "Pain in My Life," didn't do much on radio and charts, peaking at number 91.

    Saigon says he is currently talking to a few different major labels for his next deal. His latest single "Believe It" [Listen Here] was released today, and Saigon says he has seven videos ready to release but was waiting until his contract was resolved. "I'm not that excited about going to a major label," Saigon says. "They would have to make it so I'm set for the rest of my life. They want too much for the little that they're giving." He continued "It's not like I didn't want to put out music," he continues. "But Atlantic wanted me to do ringtone songs but they didn't sign me as a ringtone artist."

    Saigon said that he was left without support when his A&R rep that signed him, Kyambo "Hip-Hop" Joshua, left to join Columbia. "They gave me $18,000 to shoot the video for 'Pain In My Life' and I'm seeing Plies get $100,000 and Lupe [Fiasco] get $150,000," he says. "What the f*ck? Those artists are friends of mine, but now I'm happier than I've been in a minute."
