:: From IL Back To NY ::

The Bootis Connection

Okay for the last post of the MC's to check in the '06 we had to come back to the NYC. Remember that cat that ripped up 106 & Park's freestyle friday 7 weeks in a row? The one who did it first and the reason why they had to come up with that whole hall of fame sh*t. His name was Postaboy and while many people thought he just fell off and couldn't make the transition from battle rap to LP rap, the man was actually goin thru some things and had to put the rap game on hold. Its been 2 years since the days of 106 and for Postaboy its probably felt like a lifetime. Straight outta 106, Postaboy signed with Universal/Fo'Reel, but the deal was botched due to mismanagement and lack of promotion; Posta then had to endure the loss of his brother in the 9/11 attacks in NY; to top it all off, Posta was diagnosed with cancer. Fortunately, the original Mr. 106 has battled back from all adversity, with 2 new mixtapes and has beaten the cancer that almost took his life. Poised to drop his debut album, Live From The Emergency Room, check Postaboy to do some damage in the '06.

The Bootis Connection

Last but most definitely not least...Saigon. If you never heard of this dude, you better do some research. This MC is a true product of an F'ed up U.S society. By age 11 dude was sellin weed; by 13, part of a gang and by the age of 15 Saigon had already been involved in 2 shootings, which he received jail time for. This kid was basically raised by the NY penal system, spending the remainder of his teenage years behind bars. After being released from prison in '99 Saigon hit the mixtape circuit hard and made a name for himself in NY. You can now find a Saigon all over mixtapes, on HBO and still sometimes on the news. Earlier this year some dude tried to steal his chain, stabbin him in the head with a beer bottle. Saigon didnt want to get blood in his Benz so he tried to hail a cab (isn't it hard enuff tryin to hail a cab in NYC being black man, but tryin to get one while your covered in blood from a stab wound to the head???). So ya obviously he wasn't picked up so he drove himself to the hospital. Anyway, this cats rhyme skills are amazing so check him out....summer 06 The Greatest Story Never Told!!!
