Saigon announces new album Bread and Circuses for September release | Music News

A widely underrated rapper, Saigon made us wait long enough for The Greatest Story Ever Told and is not wasting time with its follow up. Having taken to his Twitter account earlier, he announced his forthcoming offering, to be entitled Bread And Circuses on September 11th, 2012.

“Let’s try that again…Sept 11th 2012 I will be releasing my Sophomore album Bread And Circuses… Please please support the TRUE shit,” tweeted the New York emcee, after initially announcing that the album would be arriving later this year.

Speaking of the symbolic album title, Sai said: “The meaning of the title is a metaphor for how they control the population with not good public service but through diversion”

Bread and Circuses. Food and Entertainment is how they control the masses. Count how many food commercials come on during a t.v. ‘program’. It’s a old Roman formula [on] how to make the population fall in line… Yall should read up on it….”

After the delayed release of his debut studio offering The Greatest Story Never Told, that dropped in February 2011, the rapper released his third installment in the street album Warning Shots series. It looks like Saigon is planning to keep that momentum going with his next body of work not too long away.
