Saigon Says Rick Ross Jab Was “A Strategy” & “Not Personal”
Anybody angered by Saigon’s comments can stand down, because he meant no harm.Taking to Facebook to explain himself, Saigon said that his harsh words for Rick Ross, and 2 Chainz were not intended to be personal.
The clip that caused so much controversy was the tail end of his entire interview with The Breakfast Club. “I say them things on purpose,” he wrote. “If U notice I say people names at the end of the interview.In my mind Im thinking I just dropped a deep interview but I have to say some super ignorant Isht to bring people to even watch it so I said a name or 2… I just been doing this for a while and I understand how the Hip Hop media works..I hope those 2 guys understand it was simply a strategy and not personal at all.. Though I DONT agree with their content. I do not want to cause them any harm or see them harmed.”
As previously reported, Hip-Hop Wired spoke exclusively with Ross affiliate, and MMG member Gunplay, who had some choice words for Saigon. “I got a son too, Ross got a daughter, Ross got a son. I dare you to do that sh-t.” he says. “To each his own, if that’s how he feel… try to punch him in the face.”
Potentially responding to Gunplay, or the uproar in general, Saigon went on Twitter this afternoon to further explain his intentions. “That real street Beef sh-t is right up my alley but would defeat the whole purpose of what Im trying to accomplish. I dont wanna hurt no one.”
So there it is, all’s well that ends well.
