Assassin a.k.a Agent Sasco’s brand new album The Theory of Reggaetivity debuts this week at #3 on the highly-coveted U.S. Billboard Reggae Chart. He is the only Jamaican artist to land in the Top 5 this week – in between the ranks of the Southern Californian band Stick Figure (who hit #1) and the Grammy-winning UK singer Joss Stone (who trailed behind him at #4) and Hawaiian band Iration (who followed at #5).
Assassin’s The Theory of Reggaetivity is his first album in almost a decade and a new direction for the artist – allowing him to delve into a more reggae-centric sound. His conscious free-flowing lyrics ride over crisp island rhythms – mixed with traditional live instrumentation and digitally-enhanced beats. Critics and fans alike embrace his sound wholeheartedly.
