A fledgling area record label and management company was able to land hot up-and-coming rapper Saigon for its first show in the Lehigh Valley because of family ties.
Saigon, who will perform at 8 p.m. today at The Firehouse in Bethlehem, is a cousin of Jersey City rapper Crusafix, who is represented by Track Masons, a Reading-based record label started by Dana Barrack.

Saigon will headline a show that also will include Crusafix and other Track Masons artists Bee Ez of Far Rockaway, Queens, N.Y., and Rukus of Wilkes-Barre.
Barrack says he got his start in the music business while a student at Wilkes College in Wilkes-Barre, from where he graduated in 2006.
