Kanye West respect for dancehall music is becoming more and more evident since releasing his latest album Yeezus on Tuesday June 18.
Kanye West has been receiving a lot of praise in the hip-hop and dancehall community for the controversial album which features samples from Capleton, Beenie Man, Popcaan and a verse from Agent Sasco.
Sasco, aka Assassin, told the Star that it was a great opportunity for him to work with Kanye West.
“Kanye’s production was there working on a summer project and wanted some verses from dancehall artistes, and I was one of the artistes selected,” Agent Sasco said. “I spat some verses, some with and some without music. I got a call in January and I was told he liked what he heard and I’d be hearing from them soon in order to do a bit more work.”
“What it means for my career really is a reinforcement that I am a diverse artiste who isn’t limited to a specific genre or type of music,” Agent Sasco continues. “I believe in being creative, and working with Kanye’s team was one of those great opportunities.”
