Jeffrey Campbell, (born in Kingston, Jamaica on December 22, 1982) popularly known as Assassin aka Agent Sasco is a Dancehall Reggae artist, reputed to be a great lyricist and song writer.
He is also a producer, and Co-founder of Boardhouse
Records. Named Assassin by school classmates for his quick-witted lyrics
and sharp shooting delivery, a talent recognized before age 4, Jeffrey
has always carried with him this impressive ability. In the latter
portion of his high school years, he got his intro to the music industry
when Spragga Benz recorded a song penned by Jeffrey. Having a seasoned
mentor and the drive, the young talent quickly escalated his efforts and
by age 19, he had three number one hits in that same calendar year.
Campbell grew up in Jamaica between Kintyre, in the parish of St. Andrew, with his mother and also in St. Catherine with his father. It was with humble beginnings that Jeffrey learned the value of living a fulfilled life is not measured by monetary possessions, but by the importance of personal output for good. His mother, a strong Christian woman, and father, an ex military officer, instilled a mindset of integrity, and emphasized the importance of education. Having this strong foundation has been a rooted influence in the art and life of Assassin.
Fueled by both purpose and passion, music comes naturally for the artist. It is in his DNA to be a musician, and in his upbringing to succeed at everything he attempts. The day he discovered the most basic formula in music, the four-count bar, was the day he learned how to creatively infuse his lyrics into each song. He steadfastly enthralled himself in the art and continued to acknowledge significant growth in his professional and personal life.
experiences administered powerful lessons, which are reflected in his
music. In addition, he continued his education in Business Management
from University of Sunderland, adding to his skill sets of being a
well-rounded professional artist. Signed to VP records in (2004), the
deejay released two albums for the label, his debut album Infiltration
(2005) and a celebration on ghetto life, Gully Sit’in (2007), both of
which were acclaimed by fans and escalated his notability worldwide.
2005 was a checkered year for the artist, releasing his 1st album, becoming a father, and suffering the loss of his mother. Assassin took the experiences and directed his energy, motivating himself to strive and refreshing his overall persona. The following year a name adaptation came into play, Agent 006 (2006), borrowed from a theme playing off James Bond. The agent theme eventually evolved into “Agent Sasco”, when close friends started calling him “Sasco”, a derivative of Assassin.
Influenced by life experiences, classic dancehall riddims, and the richness of humanity, Agent Sasco’s music brings life to light in a conversation style method. Music for him is a dialogue, and in fact he doesn’t actually “write” his songs. He possesses an extraordinary gift, recording each track as it comes to mind. His natural aptitude to convey the human experience, through catchy beats, and spoken truth, are an effortless knack. This skill set offers him the ability to work quickly, producing an array of works with a plethora of talents, and also makes him appealing to fans globally.
Assassin Agent Sasco discography over the past decade includes two full albums, and over 300 singles. He has performed solo shows and major festivals all over the globe from Europe to Central America, North America to Africa, all over the Caribbean and also in the Far East. He has worked with major trendsetters in reggae music including, Shaggy, Marcia Griffiths, Beres Hammond, Spragga Benz, Sean Paul, Josie Wales, Bounty Killer, Maxi Priest, Buju Banton, Wayne Marshall, Richie Stephens, Michael Rose, and Freddy McGregor.
In 2013, American Hip-Hop artist Kanye West recognized Assassin’s lyrical dexterity and selected his verse for the song “I’m In It”, on the Yeezus album. This opportunity has expanded his visibility and opened doors across genres. Since then his lyrics have contributed to additional hip-hop artist’s songs, having worked with Jerry Wonda, Raekwon, and Melanie Fiona, “Soundboy Kill It”, Kardinal Offishall “Pretty Paper”, Lil Jon “Turn Down for What Remix”, and others that are currently under way. His interest in crossing genres is part of his musical experience, yet he remains true to the essence of his craft, which is dancehall. Assassin is currently working on his third album, expected to release in 2015.
