Hip-Hop Artist & Star of HBO’s Entourage, Saigon Partners With The Bowery Misson Homeless Shelter To Keep Less Fortunate New Yorkers Warm During Winter

Hip-Hop Artist & Star of HBO’s Entourage, Saigon Partners With The Bowery Misson Homeless Shelter To Keep Less Fortunate New Yorkers Warm During Winter

New York based hip-hop artist Saigon, who also starred in the hit HBO TV series Entourage, has offered a helping hand to help the The Bowery Mission homeless shelter in New York City. Saigon recently jumped in to help distribute blankets to those less fortunate and keep them warm from the harsh winter temperatures.

“Me and some friends of mine, the Ahuja’s that own a garment manufacturing company, took to the very cold streets of NYC over these past couple of nights to hand out warm blankets to help the homeless stay warm,” commented Saigon. “We covered Port Authority, Penn Station and the Bowery Mission Homeless shelter handing out over a hundred blankets. I did it because I had a little down time after finishing up my album and my friends, the Aluhja’s, had some extra blankets so we decided to go hand them out to the homeless. If we can prevent one person from freezing to death out there on the streets, that makes everything worth it. I wish more hip-hop artists would step up and help give something back to their communities. If everyone used the power they have to lend a helping hand, hopefully it would inspire others to do the same.”

Saigon is scheduled to unleash his debut album, “The Greatest Story Never Told”, through Suburban Noize Records on Feb 15th, 2011. The album was produced primarily by Just Blaze, the talented producer behind smash hits for Jay-Z, Eminem and T.I. The disc also contains contributions from Kanye West, Jay-Z & Swizz Beatz (“Cmon Baby”), Faith Evans (“Clap”) and former Floetry member Marsha Ambrosius (“It’s Alright). The album is currently available for pre-order online with an exclusive 6 song bonus disc
