In einem Interview mit Sohh.com griff nun Yardfather Saigon seine ungleich erfolgreicheren Kollegen Rick Ross und Big Sean fÃ¼r deren Mangel an positiven Aussagen in ihrer Musik an und bezichtigte sie den Werteverfall in der schwarzen Community voranzutreiben:
Why ya?ll supportin? a ngga that promotes the destruction of our community? Why are you doin? that? Why would you let this ngga thrive and we don?t know where our next jobs are coming from? He?s rapping about selling kilos of cocaine and selling drugs. This is what he?s about, this whole lifestyle saying he?s so rich and he eats shrimp every night, and ya?ll support this sht? Ya?ll broke and poor and your family?s about to get kicked out. That?s our hit son! That?s his hit. Nobody knows the words to this song, all they know is ?ass, ass, ass, ass, ass, ass, ass? [background noises]. We don?t care about ?ass, ass, ass, ass,? but this is the society we livin? in right now. So it?s like alright.?*
Nachdem diese Statements verÃ¶ffentlicht wurden, beeilte sich Saigon die Aussagen zu dementieren und der Fantasie der beteiligten Journalisten zuzuschreiben. Auf Twitter schrieb er:
Haha never a dull moment with these Hip Hop sites. The shit niggas do for a headline. 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?.. @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.
@rickyrozay I thought niggas was done using me to look like the the Disgruntled Postal Worker of rap?. Salute ya grind all day. Regardless to what, Rozay is making some of the best music in Hip Hop and he came in with Hustling, would be stupid for me to speak on that. Om an outspoken person, ALways gonna speak my mind but @rickyrozay is my nigga. Would be stupid for me to take a shot a nigga I rocks with.. Im used to this shit so it doesnt bother me anymore. i dont even pay attn to what other niggas doing anymore.. I stay in my lane.. I just hate the negative energy. I dont care abt what the next man is doing. Im on the other side of the world right now doing what I do. Ross is one of the few niggas who ever extended his hand to me before.
Mad love for @rickyrozay so with that said. Its a dead issue. MRA. I remember one magazine had the whole south hating me at one point? SMH. Yall have to learn to separate a fucking artist from a man.. Yall forgetting this shit is just a JOB. First of all, if I did have a problem with the music It wouldnt be be the artist, it would be the MACHINE that spreads it? Get real. Artists dont control whats PROGRAMMED on RADIO.. That would be the CEO?s over at Clear Channel and Radio One. As I said the last time I seen @rickyrozay He said ?if U need anything, just holla? I never did but he extended that to me. Thats Love. I would never shit on a person who extended his hand to me to help me? Yall are some real STUPID muthafuckas? LOL. Its not a secret I dont agree in the direction Hip Hop has taken but I wouldnt single out one person.. Think ya?ll? Think.
Dumm nur das Sohh.com das Interview aufgezeichnet hatte und nun die entsprechende Audiospur verÃ¶ffentlichte:
Weiterhin heiÃ?t es auf Sohh.com, dass man von Saigon lediglich ein Statement zu dessen Gastauftritt wÃ¤hrend eines Lil Kim Konzerts hÃ¤tte haben wollen und dieser stattdessen fast eine Stunde lang Ã¼ber Themen wie die Schwulenehe, Kim Kardashian und Kanye Wests Liaison und eben Rick Ross und Big Sean vom Leder zog. Das gesamte Interview wurde ebenfalls verÃ¶ffentlicht:
