Saigon has some interesting endeavors in the works, but all too many people remember him by is his time on Love & Hip Hop New York, where his volatile relationship with his baby mama was on full display. According to the Yardfather, he was sincerely trying to set a good example, but Erica Jean wanted to be Kim Kardashian.
Saigon told The Urban Daily:
My way of trying to outsmart the system is to try and make it more so about single parenthood and black fathers because we’re always ridiculed for being absent. So I went up there with a female who I had irresponsible sex with and I really didn’t know her, but we have a child. So I went up there to show that, that’s not really an excuse for not being in your child’s life. It just kind of ended up going haywire cause she wanted to be Kim Kardashian. She wanted to go up there and be famous, as we see now, all over the Internet with sex scandals and all this shit she’s into. My purpose was to show that we can lead by example.
Oh that’s what happened. Check out the full story, including Saigon’s new label, website and his take on his visit to Iyanla: Fix My Life, over at The Urban Daily.
