On Monday and Tuesday May 2nd and 3rd, 2005 Saigon blessed the stage of Harlem, NY’s Apollo theater. LES representer Tru-Life, who opened up for Snoop Dogg, had the crowd going after two songs, but the fans went into an absolute frenzy when he proceeded to bring out the street’s most anticipated new hip-hop artist, Saigon to join him on stage to perform their new duet, “Yep Yep”.
The whole Apollo Theater sprung to their feet as the two energetic MCs tore up the stage with their thunderous performance. Saigon remained on stage to support his brother Tru as he finished his set debuting his “New New York” anthem. Both fans and celebrities like NY’s own DJ Enuff could be seen in the crowd happily championing a return to the Empire State’s glory days.
Known for unabashed lyrical content Saigon and Tru-Life have collaborated numerous times, most recently The Yard Father and the Chain Collector appeared on Smack DVD volume 7, calling out some of hip hop most popular artists and performing some of their underground hits including “Come Again”, in which Saigon plans to shoot an official video for later this month.
