    Told is worth the wait; raising Saigon's profile is probably Entourage's greatest/only gift to the world, at least where hip-hop is concerned.

    The fact that Greatest Story didn't drop on a major just attests to how perverted the industry is. That said, the delicious and anthemic Just Blaze beats, money cameos, and precise orchestration that spoiled deals afforded render this the last great major-label rap album of all time - even though it's on an indie.
  3. Saigon don't play. He's a social realist and a realist moralist who makes his seriousness work for him.

    Even though there were a few points at which this album dragged for me, (see back to back six-minute songs), there is no doubt that this is not only a strong debut for Saigon, but a strong album that indicates he'll be a force in hip-hop for years to come.

    Saigon has had the time to craft an epic hip-hop album that's a fitting testament to his skill and his sheer force of will.

    Very nice LP. Not groundbreaking or classic, just good rhymes over dope beats, this is what Hip Hop needs more of. Although a great effort,Very nice LP. Not groundbreaking or classic, just good rhymes over dope beats, this is what Hip Hop needs more of. Although a great effort, some tracks feel a bit dated, this is really my only criticism of the album. You can't help but feel that if it had indeed been released all those years ago then it would have been that little bit more special.... Full Review »

    How is this guy not famous yet? A bunch of tracks, not a single bad song on this album and Saigon kills every song over every epic beat. ThisHow is this guy not famous yet? A bunch of tracks, not a single bad song on this album and Saigon kills every song over every epic beat. This is one of the better rap albums that I've ever heard and it's definitely better than anything Taylor Gang and YMCMB are shoveling out. Saigon is an intelligent gangster with words of wisdom and you need at least a song from this album on your iTunes. Full Review »
