Agent Sasco has aligned himself with a number of heavyweight talents on his latest single, ‘Change’, featuring Stonebwoy, Kabaka Pyramid and Spragga Benz. The new song is taken from Sasco’s ‘Hope River’ album and began airing on Apple Music as Ebro Darden’s Beats1 Banger on Thursday.
In 2018, Sasco continues his streak of versatility in hiphop, reggae and dancehall. Change is just one of the many standout tracks from Hope River, which features various talents from Jamaica. The legend Stephen ‘Ragga’ Marley takes an objective stance on the good and bad on Grateful; icon Buju Banton speaks on Sasco’s potential for greatness on Passage Of Time, an interlude from a rare 2004 interview; reggae-inspired rapper Kardinal Offishall imagines a world we may never see on Legacy; soulful rising songstress Sevana represents for the ride-or-die ladies in relationships on They Will Rob You; and reggae upstart Dre Island lends his captivating vocals on So Blessed. plus, gospel singer Glacia Robinson on Mama Prayed and hitmaker Wayne Marshall on Journey bring motivational themes to their guest appearances.
Although Sasco has built a reputation as a frequent collaborator in the hip-hop world, on his fourth studio album, camaraderie with fellow Jamaican artistes or those with cultural ties to the island help shape his strongest release to date.
Currently, Sasco’s lyric video for the single Banks Of The Hope has set the tone for Hope River.
“The album’s overall theme is hope. That’s what I wanted represented, a story of hope,” said Sasco.
Hope River will be released on August 31.
