The Theory of Reggaetivity is a pivotal album in the discography of Assassin a.k.a. Agent Sasco. For the past 15 years, the Jamaican vocalist has earned credibility through his dense catalogue of dancehall hits (spanning over 300 singles) and more recently for his hip hop collaborations (including Kanye West’s “I’m In It” and Kendrick Lamar’s “The Blacker the Berry”). On his new third studio album, the vocalist goes back to dancehall’s foundation and expands his reach to reggae – delivering his most honest record that parallels his maturation over the past 10 years. In contrast to Assassin’s more dancehall-driven releases – Infiltration(2005) and Gully Sit’n (2007) – The Theory of Reggaetivity’s foundation is purely reggae.

“The Theory of Reggaetivity is my musical study of the principles of reggae music. What makes reggae … reggae? What are the birth marks, the unique, distinguishing characteristics of the music? I like the idea of a theory because it’s a supposition, therefore it leaves room for improvements and amendments. Like with all learning it does not propose that one knows all there is to know on the subject and leaves room for expansion,” says Assassin.
