Saigon tells AllHipHop that he’s still bound to Atlantic Records although they do own the masters to The Greatest Story Never Told.
After the jump, Just Blaze’s response(s) that he put on Twitter:
ATTN: I did NOT “try and fake” ANYTHING in regards to Atlantic. Far as I know Saigon is/was off the label. If there were particulars still lingering I was not aware. – 2 Hours Ago
I Dont do publicity stunts. And I don’t fake things for public perception. That devalues my word to the people when I’m speaking on something real. What’s done is done at this point, but I don’t play that game. Faking being off of a label would not help anyone at the end of the day. – 1 Hour Ago
And finally, just 20 minutes ago, Just said this:
Let me clarify. I was a bit aggy when I woke up.. To my knowledge Atlantic agreed to release Sai. But there were probably terms that had yet to be resolved. I know it took a second for the agreement to be put in place as far as being able to walk with the masters, but there were probably other terms that still needed to be renegotiated. Probably point overrides and buyout fees. That was the last I heard. Apparently that end of it still isn’t done I guess? I was never involved with that part of the situation really. When Sai said that I think he wasn’t really thinking about te context and it probably just came out a little wrong. All the more reason we gotta be careful when talking to the folks with cameras. All is good tho. I just dint like waking up to headlines like “just blaze lied!!!”. Back to destroying and rebuilding. Good day all. – 20 Minutes Ago
