Saigon Signs With Violator Management

From his myspace blog:

First things first, I wanna put shit in its proper perspective ...Just Blaze is not only my friend and my producer...But he is a GREAT example of a black man..I know alot of people hear his name and his music and assume that Blaze means he must smoke some POWERFUL shit before he goes into make a beat but your talking about a man who never smoked weed in his life...He has never drank alcohol in his life. he has extensive morals and is VERY family oriented.. If I had a child and were looking for someone to set an example of what it means to be a stand up guy, I couldnt think of anyone better than Justin Smith aka Just Blaze to do so....I know yall see the back and forth shit between us and I admit I was stupid for my part in it...But its like 2 brothers fighting in the street when they couldve went inside the house and shot 5 in their bedroom...You will NEVER see that again so I hope you enjoyed it...I love Just Blaze to death and I will bleed or make someone else bleed for that dude...Not because he makes good beats or he produced my album, but because he has a big heart...Im cool with his Mom, Brother and Auntie (who is super cool).... And since I was dumb enough to engage in this online public fued..Im man enough to use the same forum to apologize to him for not just calling him and expressing whatever I felt was wrong..If you read this my Nigga, I apologize..Real spit...U my nigga..

Now on to the point of this Blog....With my now VERY public discontent with not the label, but MY personal sitiuation at the label, I figured I needed to get some BIG guns to help my sitiuation.. Im sure there will be more understanding now hahaha...

I remember when I first came out of prison my friend Che Johnson brought me to meet Chris Lighty and I was in awe just to be meeting someone so powerful in the music business..(plus Im a huge Jungle Brothers and Tribe Called Quest fan so I was extra hype)....I dont even know if he remembers this but he was telling me how his client N.O.R.E lived right down the street from him or something to that effect...I was so intrigued by all the platinum plaques on the walls I was only half paying attention, mind you I was about 2 weeks out from doing a very loooooooooooong time in prison...My point is, I never in my life thought this guy would be managing my career one day....Yes its officially official..I am now managed by Violator and the stakes are higher than ever...Its a problem, TRUST.....God works in mysterious ways but he works..hahahaha..Im very proud to be a part of such a prestigous comany who has put in so much work in the business...Not only has Violator stood the test of time, they also are innovating the wave of the future so as we say in hood "Im good Money"......Ive pretty much been managing myself this whole time (6 years) and already in this short time (a week), Ive already seen a world of difference...Thank You Laurie Dobbins for the insight you have already given me ...Lets make some more history...Thank You Theo (my high powered attorney haahaha) for the plug in....Thank You Chris for the opportunity, I know youre a busy busy man.....Prieciate it Homie..Lets make it....All hate is welcomed..Thanks....

From now on, any interview or show request please contact gotta love it......
