Agent Sasko to make SXSW debut

It is no wonder why hip hop’s biggest names like Kendrick Lamarand Kanye West sought out dancehall artist Assassin a.k.a. Agent Sasco for some of the most wicked guest verses over the last couple of years. The Jamaican lyricist has been slaying the dancehall scene for over a decade, hence the reason for his notorious moniker. On Assassin’s latest album, Theory Of Reggaetiviity(Feb 19 / Sound Age), he goes back to dancehall’s foundation and expands his reach to reggae – delivering his most honest record that parallels his maturation over the years. The critically acclaimed album debuted at #3 on the U.S. Billboard Reggae Album chart and remains in the Top 10.

This past week, the buzz continues.  He landed a rave review in the worldwide syndicated news outlet Associated Press and his video for ‘Mix Up’ was nationally broadcasted on BET Jams. In addition, the album cut “Reggae Origin” was selected at Ebro Darden’s Beats1 Banger on Apple Music on Mar 9. Unrelated to the album (but equally relevant), Assassin also appeared in Lucas DiPasquale’s latest video  for “Come Home.”
On Sat. March 19, Assassin will make his SXSW debut in Austin, Texas to showcase his new album and perform his catalog of hits. He will headline the Sounds of The Caribbean showcase, held at the Palm Door of Sixth (508 E. 6th St) at 12:50-1:30am
