Jamaican dancehall artiste, Assassin is once again taking it to the road. With the heat on the streets from his video for the song, Boring Girl and an impressive catalogue of hit songs, Assassin hit Europe on tour.
The tour kicked off Wednesday, May 30 in Stockholm, Sweden and ends on Friday, June 16 in Stuttgart, France.
Assassin will be releasing his new album entitled Versatile in summer of 2007. Assassin eliminates numerous misconceptions on his sophomore release Versatile. As the title suggests, this record comes straight from the streets, but with a difference. Assassin explains that the title track is “a celebration of ghetto lifestyle as opposed to a lamentation about how horrible it is.”
Instead of demonizing ghetto residents as unruly savages, Assassin’s lyrics offer an acknowledgment of the fact that people are people even without an abundance of material things. “You can still be happy while you’re working towards better,” he points out. “It’s all about not being resigned to your surroundings.”
