Agent Sasco releases 'No Gangsta'
Agent Sasco has dropped his newest single, 'No Gangsta', an ode which encompasses maintaining a powerful influence without exerting unnecessary pressure.
Sasco, born Jeffrey Campbell, said the concept came primarily from the mood and atmosphere of smooth flow of the rhythm, backed by a crisp beat that evokes a musical sojurn.
"The rhythm has an old dancehall gangsta vibe; when I heard it, it brought back memories of the popular movie, The Godfather," he explained. With that, the artiste, known for his clever and witty vocals, decided to pen the lyrics to capture an influential character who is the man in charge, demanding respect, but not having to fight or brag to stamp authority.
He explained that he decided to redefine the idea of a gangster from being someone who is a menace to society or a downright troublemaker, leaning more to someone who demands respect in the streets. "When we say 'I'm no gangsta' it doesn't mean I will back down from a fight. The lyrics dem fi know seh nuh bwoy can't diss, but yuh nah go see mi pon di wanted list shows that we respect the law, but we are protective of our family and territory and will defend what is ours."
Agent Sasco said it was a success working with Majah Label Music Group, which produced the song, as they delivered well the expectations he had of them.
