AGENT SASCO A.K.A ASSASSIN
Jeffrey Campbell, (born in Kingston, Jamaica on December 22, 1982) popularly known as Assassin aka Agent Sasco is a Dancehall Reggae artist, reputed to be a great lyricist and song writer. He is also a producer, and Co-founder of Boardhouse Records. Named Assassin by school classmates for his quick-witted lyrics and sharp shooting delivery, a talent recognized before age 4, Jeffrey has always carried with him this impressive ability. In the latter portion of his high school years, he got his intro to the music industry when Spragga Benz recorded a song penned by Jeffrey. Having a seasoned mentor and the drive, the young talent quickly escalated his efforts and by age 19, he had three number one hits in that same calendar year.
Campbell grew up in Jamaica between Kintyre, in the parish of St. Andrew, with his mother and also in St. Catherine with his father. It was with humble beginnings that Jeffrey learned the value of living a fulfilled life is not measured by monetary possessions, but by the importance of personal output for good. His mother, a strong Christian woman, and father, an ex military officer, instilled a mindset of integrity, and emphasized the importance of education. Having this strong foundation has been a rooted influence in the art and life of Assassin.

He steadfastly enthralled himself in the art and continued to acknowledge significant growth in his professional and personal life. His experiences administered powerful lessons, which are reflected in his music. In addition, he continued his education in Business Management from University of Sunderland, adding to his skill sets of being a well-rounded professional artist.
