Saigon – The Greatest Story Never Told

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on January 22nd, 2011 by Hyphen

Derek Pike directed visuals for the title track from Saigon’s long awaited album.  This track is probably a few years old, but at least we finally get to hear all these crazy Just Blaze/Saigiddy records!

Saigon – Get Busy (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on November 13th, 2010 by Hyphen

It’s no “Super Brookyn,” but I’m down for anything NES related really.  It looks like Sai is making a renewed push and finally has a home for his long awaited official debut album too.  Here’s hopin’…

Speaking of which, someone tweeted this the other day and I never even realized it: if it’s the Mario brothers, wouldn’t that mean their names are Mario Mario and Luigi Mario?  Things that make you go hmmmm.

Amen – Queens Boulevard

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on September 30th, 2009 by Hyphen

As I’ve mentioned before, Amen has been one of my favorite MC’s for a minute now, but he doesn’t get anywhere near the exposure he deserves.  He’s gearing up to release more music than ever these days and after dropping Head On recently, he’s back with his “Entourage” inspired project, Queens Boulevard.   Check it out…

Saigon ft. Red 5ive – Gotta Believe It (video)

Posted in Artists, Movies, Music Videos on September 5th, 2009 by Hyphen

Brand new visuals for one of the best records of the past year.  Sai-giddy’s Warning Shots 2 drops on the 29th on Amalgam Digital and while we still don’t know when that Atlantic project will ever be released, at least we’ll continue to get some good music in the meantime.

Oh, and if you don’t know, Red 5ive is Just Blaze’s alter ego when he decides to sing hooks.  The name is derived from Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing jet in Star Wars:

It’s a trap!”

Peter Rosenberg presents A Rosenberg Oddisee (mixtape)

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on October 29th, 2008 by Hyphen


One of my fellow “real hip-hop heads” on the radio, Peter Rosenberg, linked with Oddisee to whip up this little EP featuring Torae, Skyzoo, Daytona, Saigon, Buckshot, and (the lovely) Nikki Jean.  The concept was simple: all Oddisee beats + dope MC’s + one day to record it all.  I’m sure it was hectic, but it turned out great.  Download link and tracklisting after the jump!
