Fresh off the positive reception of All In a Day’s Work, Saigon has confirmed with AllHipHop.com the release of Warning Shots 2.
Working again with label Amalgam Digital, the project will be marketed as a full-length album distributed through CD and digital formats.
Saigon’s previous 2009 LP, the Statik Selektah collaboration All In a Day’s Work, was recorded in 24 hours and released in just a week.
With the funds for traditional promotional campaigns shrinking, Saigon feels his recent projects offer a blueprint for artists on how to break the divide between mixtapes and albums.
“I’m enjoying my experience with Amalgam Digital and being creative to give music to my fans without all the bullsh*t,” Saigon explained to AllHipHop.com. “It’s a new way of thinking and it feels good to partner with an innovative company that’s ahead of its curve. I’m excited to get this album out!”
Saigon’s recent explosion of work is the result of a recommitment to his career following years of stagnation on Atlantic Records, where he remained under contract from 2004-2008.
Warning Shots 2 features an array of guests in Grand Puba (“Who Can Get Busy”), Lil Fame of MOP (“Rusy Gunz”), Ransom (“F*ck Me, F*ck You”), Quan, and O.J. Da Juiceman (“For Some P*ssy”).
The latter offering is the lead single, with a clean version ready for radio outlets.
The album also has production from Just Blaze, and will serve as a lead-in to their oft-delayed, but still highly anticipated project The Greatest Story Never Told.
Warning Shots 2 will be available at retail outlets on September 29.
