Pain In My Life (Edited, Single)
Released: Dec 2006
Label: Atlantic Records
For someone who is New York's most highly touted new rapper in years, Saigon seems pretty damn sad on the lead-off single for his upcoming album, The Greatest Story Never Told. The song features Trey Songs and addresses underage promiscuity, molestation, homelessness, alcoholism, incarceration, priestly rape and, finally, suicide. At one point, Saigon comments that he finds religion "awkward," and later breaks into a weepy rap flow as he admits, "I know how it feel/ I've been to jail/ With none of my n*gg*s keeping it real/ No dough/ No mail/ It was, 'Yo, go to hell.'"
