Following a newly signed distribution deal with Tech N9ne’s Strange Music, Saigon has returned to the mix with the first glimpse from his upcoming album 777: The Resurrection. Set to arrive in full on August 28th, Sai has officially dropped off the project’s lead single “Bullets-19,” produced by Streetrunner. Never one to shy away from speaking on societal issues, Saigon uses the opportunity to reflect on the ongoing dangers of gun violence, the pain in his voice indicative of the subject’s severity.

Saigon opened up about the track in an official press release. “When children can’t go outside and play without potentially getting shot, you know we have a problem” he explains. “Right now, we’re dealing with two pandemics, one is Covid-19 and the other is the spread of even more bullets killing Black and Brown people across the country as this recent surge of gun violence continues. As a community of colour, we must take control of creating and implementing solutions to bring an end to this ourselves and if you’re not part of the solution, then you’re in the way.”

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Ain’t no way that I would let a viral threat make me forget
That in which I suspect is the reason that I can check
All media outlets, see the globe in a panic
I wonder how we under but never go over standing
A day before Corona hit, I read an article that read
200 shootings in Chicago predicted for tomorrow
But what I didn’t see was politicians all over the screen
Talking ’bout a vaccine, stopping kids from getting hit with them hollow
But are bodies in Baltimore less important ’cause they poor?
They don’t call for an uproar?
It’s not an emergency when your [?] could count more
People that die from guns without going off to war
If we added up the numbers from ghettos across America
There’s more deaths than the virus, and where is all the hysteria?
Niggas is social distancing, we playing our part
But when it’s over, I hope my kids can go play in the park
You know why? You know why?
Tell ’em

[Chorus]
Our children shouldn’t have to run from bullets
Our children shouldn’t have to run from bullets

[Verse 2]
They’ve seen too many mamas cry on the south side
So many nanas lose their grandsons to handguns
I know we get a forced pride from saying “We outside”
But from the speed of a bullet, homie, you can’t run
Just imagine it
We don’t get a grip on the establishment
Your kid will never get to be a graduate
Someone put a gun to your son’ head and splattered it
You up in the hospital asking doctors “How bad is it?!”
That was the incentive of using this poetry as power
It’s preventive, shout me out in your mentions
I ain’t try’na get deep I just got with other dimensions
Music is the cure, mind’s pure is my intention
These rappers use it as a damn gimmick
Us killing each other is worse than the pandemic
Some hurt you just can’t mimic
My condolences go to everybody that lost one
So why you loading that gun listening to my song, son?

[Chorus]
Our children shouldn’t have to run from bullets
Our children shouldn’t have to run from bullets
We gotta change
