Produced by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kanye West[/lastfm] and[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Just Blaze[/lastfm], “It’s Alright” is a hip-hop duet featuring the sultry R&B vocals of former [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Floetry[/lastfm] songstress [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Marsha Ambrosius[/lastfm].

Underground in spirit – but polished; wordy as a notebook and jammed with explosive hip-hop beats, Saigon’s “It’s Alright” also features a sample cut from [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Luther Vandross[/lastfm]‘s classic hit “Superstar/Until You Come Back to Me,” setting a nice tone for his solo LP.

Before the popular HBO show Entourage (Season 2) boosted his musical career, Saigon made a name for himself with his slew of mixtapes and shows; including a recent performance for X Games in Los Angeles. He recently signed with Just Blaze (notable for producing songs for [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jay-Z[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Eminem[/lastfm] and[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] T.I. [/lastfm]) and is also the mastermind behind Saigon’s long-awaited debut album The Greatest Story Never Told.

Featuring some of the biggest names in urban music including Jay-Z, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Q-Tip[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Faith Evans[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Black Thought[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Raheem DeVaughn [/lastfm]and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Swizz Beats[/lastfm], the artist/production swagger and the tight flows found on Saigon’s solo LP is destined to be a rap classic.

The Greatest Story Never Told is available now through Suburban Noize Records.

Download a free MP3 of Saigon featuring Marsha Ambrosius’s “It’s Alright” – available for a 24-hour period.
