Flashback Friday: Saigon and Mario

We’re just a few hours away from that sweet, sweet weekend. Here’s what we’re rocking to get through the workday.

the greatest story never told

Saigon, The Greatest Story Never Told (2011)

My boy Luke James (Not the Singer) mentioned Sai’s debut album earlier this week on Facebook and it forced me to revisit it. The album was plagued by years of delays, almost reaching Jay Electronica levels of false hope. When the album finally landed it was packed with top-shelf production and excellent wordplay. It didn’t disappoint. This one deserved so much more than it got.

Mario, Turning Point (2004)

Mario’s sophomore album lived up to its name, moving away from the puerile sound of his debut to more mature themes. Of course, it paid off wonderfully with his mega-hit “Let Me Love You,” but the album itself was just as strong.
