2018 has been a great year for the artist formally known as Assassin. Though he has been in the industry for many years, the general consensus amongst his fans and supporters is that he was never given the proper ratings as a lyricist, performer and / or producer.
That all changed this year with the release of his album Hope River, which was produced at his own Diamond Studio. With two certified hit singles, Winning Right Now and Bank of the Hope, Hope River is undoubtedly one of the best musical projects coming from Jamaica in 2018. Now Agent Sasco is considered to be one of Jamaica’s brightest stars, as he represents the culture with maturity and class.
His brand new video for “Bank of the Hope” gives a glimpse into his life before stardom, and to some extent, what it’s like now. In it, a well dressed Sasco tells how he transitioned from from poverty to wealth by putting God 1st and 2nd and 3rd.
