Saigon can no longer complain about his album release date being delayed. Now, he can complain with the other artists about album sales. Over the past few years, hip hop sales have been down and the stars have not been pleased. Recently, Saigon released his The Greatest Story Never Told and it sold 12,000 copies in its first week.
Glad to finally release his album, Saigon was not even upset about the album sales. As far as he is concerned, he did well after waiting six years to put the album out. Saigon is now building an online following. With only 6,000 Twitter followers, Saigon has done very well with album sales. Saigon is very pleased with his sales, given his low online presence.
Saigon said he has done Soulja Boy numbers in only a week despite having 6,000 followers. Through his Twitter, Saigon boasted about his sales and asked the people to continue supporting his album. With little to no promotion, The Greatest Story Never Told still managed to sell over 10,000 copies in one week. Meanwhile, Soulja Boy had the backing of an entire major label and he only managed to sell 13,000 copies in one week. Saigon has been met with critical acclaim following the release of his debut album.
