Saigon is back! The hip hop veteran and new star of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop 4 is giving you the “truly stripped down, real side of” himself and his music. Releasing the first single, Best Mistake, off his new album The Greatest Story Never Told, Chapter 3: A Hip Hop Story Saigon exposes the struggles he is going through while staying true to the hip hop genre. Saigon spoke exclusively with PressRoomVIP about the single, the album, the show and his new site, HipHopMyWay.com.

Today (Dec. 9) Saigon released Best Mistake. The song is a tribute and an “apology to the mother (Erica Jean) of [his] child,” said Saigon. Put plainly, Saigon “had an unplanned baby with a woman [he] hardly knew.” Until recently, the two have not been on the best of terms, which is revealed in front of camera on the reality show Love & Hip Hop 4. However that is changing, Saigon admitted that they “are growing to respect and appreciate each other.” Saigon’s daughter, Rayne, has been the catalyst and inspiration for the single and his new found respect for Erica.

To add to today’s release excitement Saigon announced that his new album The Greatest Story Never Told, Chapter 3: A Hip Hop Story will be out February 2014. Saigon described the new album as “remarkable!” The hip hop artist is absolutely thrilled with it. “It’s me without record label restraints. I have no one to answer to but myself.” Saigon continues to peel back the layers to give his listeners the most authentic music he can.

Keeping with the theme of authenticity Saigon discussed his involvement with VH1’s Love & Hip Hop 4. The show is still in the middle of production. Saigon admitted that while “it is awkward to have camera around all the time, it is something you sign up for” and he believes it is a great opportunity to give his fans an inside look at his life. The hip hop star wanted to “put a light on [his] music” and show how much of himself he puts into it.

Saigon has a true love for hip hop, so much so that he has launched a site dedicated to the genre. HipHopMyWay.com will be a platform to showcase those who are staying true to and pushing the envelope of hip hop. “I want it to be a place to feature the essence of the genre, to keep Hip Hop from being stripped of what it is.” He believes it should be a mode of expression not of revenue generation.

With the release of a new album, starring in a hit reality tv show, launching a new website and being a parent, it’s hard to imagine how Saigon gets it all done. What is certain is this dedicated artist is here to stay and PressRoomVIP looks forward to seeing what he has in store.
