Saigon - Blown Away
Producer: DJ Corbett
Avg Rating: 3.0 ( 10 total votes )
Though Saigon kicks off his latest jam with the demand that the powers that be, “free all political prisoners,” the NYC underground mainstay quickly adds a caveat: “Even though a lot of y’all are lucky to be prisoners. ‘Cause you know what happens to people when they step up? They get Blown Away.” The final pre-release single off his sophomore set, this politically-charged banger finds Sai reflecting on the unfortunate—and suspicious—tendency of progressive leaders to get cut down before their time. Martin Luther King, Jr., Huey P. Newton, Abraham Lincoln and Tupac Shakur are just a few of the many names he invokes over DJ Corbett‘s insistent piano chords. Nicholas Heller provides some visceral official visuals to complement the cut. The Greatest Story Never Told Chapter 2: Bread and Circuses is set to drop tomorrow, aka Election Day.
