Saigon Says DJ Premier Has Produced Most Of His Next Album

In an interview with The NY Hip Hop Report Saigon tells us something banging about his new album, “It’s executive produced by Just Blaze, but DJ Premier did the majority of the production on the record. Just Blaze got a record on there, but DJ Premier is really at the helm.”


Fuck yeah! the next chapter of “The Greatest Story Never Told Chapter 3: The Playbook” is expected for May ’14. All I know he has three tracks produced by DJ Premier and one is featuring Big Daddy Kane, this is what Saigon said about the Big Daddy Kane feature: “The feature I been waiting my whole life for. This is bigger than the Jay-Z feature to me personally.” Maybe more Premo tracks to expect?
