Saigon may want to stick to narrative features rather than reality shows. The hip hop artist has dabbled in both, playing himself in Entourage, a narrative, and Love & Hip Hop 4, a VH1 hit reality show. According to Saigon’s experience, the nature of the beast, in this particular part of the entertainment industry, is to expose the drama and the conflict. Saigon explains, “when you’re doing a reality show and they are taping you for six months they’re going to find, they’re going to see bad times, you just pray that they don’t use it. Meanwhile, that’s actually what they were waiting for.”

In Hip Hop My Ways’s sit down with Saigon he speaks about the dynamics of the show and how easily good intentions are overlooked. Take a look.
