About Agent Sasco (Assassin)

A popular Jamaican dancehall singer and deejay with a sharp delivery and a smart, sometimes combative lyrical style, Agent Sasco came up in the 2000s, releasing a wide array of singles and collaborations as well as a pair of albums in 2005 and 2007. Initially known as Assassin, he later changed his name to Agent Sasco and began to shift toward more socially conscious themes. Already a star within dancehall and reggae, he gained further notice in the 2010s by guesting on high-profile releases by American hip-hop stars Kanye West and Kendrick Lamar and even appeared at the 2016 Grammy Awards with the latter. His later albums include Theory of Reggaetivity (2016) and Hope River (2018), and he has remained a prolific singles artist heading into the next decade.
