Thursday 23 June 

Juicy and The Doctor's Orders present: SAIGON (live) @The Roadhouse

If you’re a fan of the HBO television series Entourage, you’ll be aware that New York rapper Saigon was discovered after foolishly leaving his demo CD in a car he’d stolen. Actually he wasn’t, that was just a fabricated storyline on the show where he starred as a warped-reality version of himself. 

In reality though, his rise to prominence has been no more protracted and controversial, including numerous ‘legal issues’, an arrest for weapons charges and a reported on-stage fight with none other than Mobb Deep member Prodigy. After further delays due to legal interference from a former record label, the long-awaited release of debut solo album The Greatest Story Never Told, produced by Just Blaze, has finally dropped to universal acclaim, featuring a glittering array of collaborations including Q-Tip, Jay Z and Kanye West.

And thus, Saigon arrives for his debut live show in Manchester Thursday 23 June at the Roadhouse, and with support including Manchester Hip Hop legend DJ Konny Kon (Broke’n’£nglish), local ‘ones to watch’ The Natural Curriculum and Juicy DJs, this is a night not to be missed for any fans of hippety hop.
