Words by Natalie Weiner—

agent-sasco-assassin

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.

Unlike most dancehall artists, Mr. Vegas lets it all hang out when it comes to his personal life. For better or worse, the singjay behind “Bruk it Down,” “Heads High” and other hits has been known to give some of the most personal, hilarious, sad and occasionally uncomfortable interviews, making him a popular guest on all variety of radio shows.

One of his most memorable interviews occurred on New York hip-hop station Hot 97′s morning show with Cipha Sounds and Peter Rosenberg in 2012, when Vegas broke down in tears discussing being cheated on by his wife. Since then, he’s been something of a regular guest on that show.
