Long before he teamed up with Just Blaze, Saigon was close to linking with G-Unit Records. In 2009, Saigon talked a little bit about his relationship with 50 Cent. It was a very close relationship and Saigon was an unnoficial G-Unit member.
After 50 Cent was signed to Interscope Records and made it big, every record label wanted a 50 Cent. Sai happened to have the "gangsta" look and the credibility to back it up. Because of this, Interscope was interested in having 50 Cent sign him.
Saigon had been text messaging 50 Cent as he was rising to the top. But, once the fame set in, 50 was not replying as much. Upset with 50, Saigon accused him of getting big headed. Because of this, 50 Cent ended his affiliation with Saigon and Sai ended up working with Just Blaze.
Things have turned out well for Saigon, but he regrets going off on 50 Cent. He feels he would already be on top of the game, as opposed to still climbing, had he been patient. Saigon admitted he did it just to see if he could get a reaction out of 50 Cent.
