Allen & Scram Jones also contribute. Guest appearances include Jay-Z , Black Thought of The Roots,Q-Tip, Devin The Dude, Layzie Bone, Bun B, Swizz Beatz & Faith Evans.
Saigon claims that his album is the best album in the last 20 years. And he s not far from reality! The perfect union between rugged Hip-Hop lyrics and groovy catchy melodies the album debuted #7 on the Billboard Rap Charts only behind Nicki Minaj, Drake, T.I. Eminem Drake and Kanye! An incredible score for an indie Artist. Having performed only once previously in London for a packed Doctor’s Orders crowd this is sure to be an incredible night as the man is joined by a host of London’s finest DJ talent that will be keeping this great Shoreditch venue bumping all night.
