This Thursday’s edition of The LargeUp Sessions is shaping up to be action packed. Fresh off his collaborations with Kanye West and Raekwon, dancehall star Assassin (a/k/a Agent Sasco) will be stopping by, along with dancer/choreographer Tanisha Scott. If you don’t know her resume, check her reel here. Or we can just summarize by saying she’s behind the moves of pretty much every music video that’s mattered in the last decade, from Elephant Man’s “Pon De River, Pon De Bank” to Rihanna’s “We Found Love.”

Words by Natalie Weiner—

Jamaican dancehall artist Assassin isn’t exactly known for sunny reggae tunes—he’s built his reputation going in hard on tracks like “Idiot Thing That,” “Anywhere We Go,” and helped bring the edge to Kanye’s dark Yeezus track, “I’m In It.” After all, they didn’t start calling him Assassin for nothing.

One thing about reggae riddims, is the classic ones always come back ’round again. Steely & Clevie produced the original Poco Man Jam riddim for artist Gregory Peck’s tune of the same name in 1990, releasing the Poco In The East riddim compilation featuring Flourgon, Carl Meeks and others a year later. Other deejays who voiced the riddim at that time included Super Cat, Capleton and, most famously, Shabba Ranks on “Trailer Load A Girls.” (Check Riddimguide.com for a more complete list).

Wu Tang Clash: Raekwon, Melanie Fiona + Assassin’s “Soundboy Kill It”

Words by Michellee Nelson—

The Wu-Tang family has had a soft spot for Jamaican culture for as long as we can remember. Remember when Method Man quoted Ninjaman on “Bring the Pain?” And of course there’s their well-documented (and yardie-inspired) obsession with Clarks Wallabees.
