About Artist: DJ Green Lantern has been doin mixtapes for years. Dead Prez is a socially conscious duo who’s been doin their thing since the mid 90s. Immortal Technique is a rapper known for his revolutionary lyrics, who’s been holding down his corner of the hip hop world since the late 90s. Saigon is a rapper signed with producer Just Blaze. I know Saigon raps about his time in prison but I don’t think he’s into social justice rap as much as Dead Prez and Immortal Technique
About Song: This song is something I used to bump back in 2007 about George Bush. Even in the era of Obama this song still seems relevant. The USA is still the USA. This song samples DJ Jazzy Jeff’s He’s the DJ I’m the Rapper.
Favorite Part: I loved hating on Bush. Hating on Obama just isn’t as fun.
DOWNLOAD MP3 Saigon-ComeOnBabyftSwizzBeatzJayZ.mp3 Summary: Saigon – The Greatest Story Never Told may be the rap album of the year. About Artist: Saigon is a NY rapper who has spent a great deal of time in the New York penetentary system causing years of delays to his music career. His most recent album which just came out the other day has been in the making for years and is highly anticipated. I just finished listening to the album and it is REALLY GOOD. You can read more about Swizz Beatz and Jay-Z on their wikipedia pages (links below) About Song: This song was the first single off of The Greatest Story Never Told and dropped in the summer of 2007 (it would be nearly another four years until the album was released). This is a shorter remix version with Jay-Z which was released on the album but you can listen to the original HERE there was also another remix with Jay-Z where Saigon raps different verses HERE. I actually think the lyrics of the original (and the other remix) are a little sharper but I posted the remix just because it’s the one that made it to the album. Both Asher Roth and Fashawn have used this same instrumental which I love and samples J. Geils Band’s Southside Shuffle (mp3 here). This is one of many Great songs that I’ll most definitely be posting from Saigon’s Greatest Story never told. Favorite Part:
I really like the track that Swizz Beatz put together, and I understand why they made so many versions of the song. The guitar and singing in the background is awesome. There are also some good lines in these verses but I’d recommend also listening to the Original and the Other Remix for more lyrics.
