Saigon Vs Atlantic Records!?!?

Many have been patiently waiting for Saigon to drop his highly anticipated debut album for quite some time now. As his buzz has continued to heighten due to his Just Blaze alliance (Blaze is executive producing his project) and his constant mixtape wizardry, the only question left about the album was "When?"

News of a Jay-Z feature have heightened the hype considerably while a video for "Pain In My Life" (featuring Trey Songz) was released last year. But there have been absolutely no signs of a release date up until this point. Apparently, Saigon has been a bit perturbed by the situation and decided to publicize his frustration via his myspace blog. Here it is in full...

SAIGON vs ATLANTIC RECORDS Round 1

pleassssse dont believe that the hold up of my album has ANYTHING to do with me or my work ethic or my rate of producing GREAT music...If you go to YOUTUBE and type in JBTV Saigon you will hear snippets of my album that Atlantic doesnt seem to have the desire to release...I just think the once great Atlantic Records has been belittled down to a home of ringtone making artists, like they sign the great jingle writers and real artist like Myself dont get a chance to showcase my musical abilities...I feel like Tupac now...Its me against the world.. Thank God artist such as Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin (Atlantic artist) werent signed in this day in time.. They wouldve never seen the light of day..not to worry though, my fans WILL hear my entire album very soon whether they put it out or not.. If they donnt I will and let yall be the judge of if the music is GREAT or not....I am putting out a brand new song right here Titled What A Life feat. Tre williams from Ill WILL RECORDS AND YOU CAN HEAR IT FIRST HERE ON MYSPACE...Look foward to hearing more exclusives from me...Im beginning to think that being my album is geared toward the betterment and not the destruction of my people the powers that be dont wanna release it...cause I know its not the skills...i am the MOST RELEVANT RAPPER in THE WORLD by far when it comes to my people..Unfortunately..They only care about $$$$...Oh well..Welcome to America... Greatest Story Never Told coming this Summer...regardless....

It definitely appears to be some problems brewing between Atlantic and Saigon as no statements have been issued by either side willing to clean this mess up.
