  1. Almost nothing here dips to ordinary. And beats or not, one reason is that the rapper's rough clarity is musical bedrock.

    As a sequel to "The Greatest Story Never Told" some people will feel that it's not as good as the original, but as for this reviewer Saigon is still that dude who has something to say that's worth hearing.

    Saigon's second LP offers a sizable amount of diversity over fitting instrumentals, exhibiting how much he has evolved as a rapper by personifying his bars to reflect his music and his life.

    It's not game changing, but Saigon's fanbase will love it, and sometimes it's better to stick with what you know.

    "Stocking Cap" Sai may be no more, but Saigon proves that he still hasn't lost his touch on the mic.

    After the debut, Saigon delights us with this strong second album that is musically perhaps slightly lower than the first. More Just Blaze and less unknown producers perhaps it would have been enough to make this album an instant classic. Collapse
