With Agent Sasco a.k.a. Assassin being a fixture in entertainment news overseas, today’s Oldies Sunday takes you back to one of the first times you’ve heard the artist born Jeffrey Campbell. Titled “Gi Wi Dem” and produced by Ward 21 for King Jammy’s Production in 2000 on the “Trilogy Riddim“, this was a clique record where Spragga Benz gave many an introduction to his Red Square Crew. The crew, comprised of Assassin, Spragga Benz, Sugar Slick, Greg Hines, Briggy, Natty Chris, and Limousine, all dropped lyrics about being available for any woman that comes their way with the proclamation that they will always be in their thoughts, hearts and souls.
“Gi Wi Dem” was a hit for the crew and allowed Assassin to break out with singles of his own. Having started his career in 1999 as a ghostwriter, the next 16 years saw Assassin releasing two albums with VP Records, adding “Agent Sasco” to his stage name, proving to be more than a Dancehall artist with earning a Degree in Business Management, charting high with his many singles, and catching everyone by surprise with high profile collaborations with Rappers Raekwon, Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West. What’s next for Assassin? Only time will tell but remember where he started with a great collection of singles.
Thank you Red Square Crew for this song!
