Saigon Breaks Free From Atlantic Records, “[Now] I’m Gonna Play The Game By My Rules”

Posted in BobbyBounce on March 7, 2010 by bobbybounce

New York rapper Saigon has reportedly won his freedom and worked out an agreement to officially part ways with Atlantic Records after being under contract for nearly four years.

According to the “Yard Father,” he came to an agreement with the label which allowed him to retain his mastered version of his music recorded at the label.

“I just got my release from Atlantic yesterday, literally,” he said in an interview last week. “I got my release, a good release, a fair release from the record company yesterday and moving forward, I’m not gonna position myself to be somebody’s artist to where they can just have me sitting around and not putting out music — I’m gonna play the game by my rules. That’s what I meant when I said I was quitting — I was quitting playing it their way, I’m doing it my way from now on. I love hip-hop…I own my masters now, I own Greatest Story Never Told, I own the masters. it was worth the wait…I’ve been trying to leave Atlantic since ’06. It’s the contract you sign [that’s so difficult.] The contract is 82 pages long.” (Soul Culture)
He recently said contractual obligations kept himself and producer Just Blaze on Atlantic.

“We still on Atlantic man, we just getting out of there,” Sai said in an interview. “Still on Atlantic bro, that’s the thing. They the real paper gangsters man. Everyone talking about, ‘They still won’t let me out my contract,’ you play with them, you deal with some serious dudes. Nah, we didn’t get off, we just tried to fake it. But it wasn’t working, that’s why I laid low for a minute, I was gonna try to disappear off the radar ’cause they don’t wanna see you go up the street being successful so they just hold you in with the paperwork. They just sent over the papers for the release but the conditions are kinda iffy, because they like ‘We spent this and this kind of money,’ so they want when I go somewhere else, to pay them…Until they come back with something decent — then we gonna keep it moving.”
However, Blaze later responded to Sai’s Atlantic accusations and claims with a different perspective.

“I Dont do publicity stunts,” Just wrote. “And I don’t fake things for public perception. That devalues my word to the people when I’m speaking on something real. What’s done is done at this point, but I don’t play that game. Faking being off of a label would not help anyone at the end of the day…What I look like faking label releases? Come on man. I stick by my ppl whenever I can, even to my detrmnt but don’t have me looking crazy!! Let me clarify. I was a bit aggy when I woke up.. To my knowledge Atlantic agreed to release Sai. But there were probably terms that had yet to be resolved. I know it took a second for the agreement to be put in place as far as being able to walk with the masters, but there were probably other terms that still needed to be renegotiated. Probably point overrides and buyout fees. That was the last I heard. Apparently that end of it still isn’t done I guess? I was never involved with that part of the situation really. When Sai said that I think he wasn’t really thinking about te context and it probably just came out a little wrong. All the more reason we gotta be careful when talking to the folks with cameras. All is good tho. I just dint like waking up to headlines like “just blaze lied!!!”. Back to destroying and rebuilding. Good day all.” (Just Blaze’s Twitter)
Sai previously said he was on the verge of signing with G-Unit Records in the past.

“Sha Money XL introduced me to 50 early in his career,” Saigon revealed in an interview. “We sat down and chopped it up. I was actually G-Unit’ed out at one point. I was running around screaming that sh*t and all that. Like ‘G-Unit n*gga!’ ’cause me and Fif chopped it up…But we had a falling out, we both Cancers — so as far as us being alpha-males, it’s hard to co-exist around that n*gga. A lot of times it’s his way or the highway. We kinda bumped heads, early.

UPDATE: Guru Addresses Near-Fatal Heart Attack, “I Am Recovering [But] I’m Weak”

Posted in BobbyBounce on March 3, 2010 by bobbybounce

Rapper Guru has addressed recent speculation about his health after he suffered a heart attack and had to have emergency surgery this week.

Speaking via a statement, Guru told fans he is still a bit weak from the operation.

“I am doing fine and I am recovering! I’m weak though,” Guru said in a statement today. “Solar is the only person who has the accurate info on my situation. Any info from anybody else is false! I appreciate your well wishes and all the love!” Guru and his family are asking for privacy as he recovers and stressed for fans to continue to send prayers, thoughts and love. (All Hip Hop)
Guru’s former associate, DJ Premier, has also been keeping fans updated through Twitter this week.

“Don’t believe rumours, pray people, pray!! #guru,” he wrote Monday (March 1) night. “Guru still in surgery, keep on praying people, he will make it Good news: #guru surgery was successful, keep sending him love.” (DJ Premier’s Twitter)
New York rapper Busta Rhymes lashed out against initial rumors claiming Guru had passed away from the heart attack yesterday.

“Everybody need 2 shut the fu*k up unless they got there facts straight especially when it comes 2 death,” Busta wrote last night. “Just 4 the record GURU iS STILL IN SURGERY so everbody needs 2 stop wit the RIP sh*t and put the right energy O.k. Even more confirmation 4 yall…@DJSCRATCH just got off the phone with PREMO AND GURU IS ALIVE.” (Busta Rhymes’ Twitter)
Hip-Hop personality Miss Info informed fans of Guru’s medical emergency Sunday (February 28) night.

There were multiple reports today that Keith “Guru” Elam, from the legendary Gang Starr has suffered cardiac arrest and is in a coma. (i.e. HipHopDX and HipHopWired) My sources have only confirmed to me that yes, Guru is in a New York-area hospital after a cardiac episode. And that his friends, family and a generation of fans are currently praying for the best. I’m also hearing that Guru is undergoing surgery soon. So, until more concrete details are available and we wish for the best! Shouts out to http://www.sohh.com

I loved it when Howard would go in on Julie Chen… That’s even funnier than goofing on Leno.
