When Jeffrey Campbell first became involved with the music business at the age of 17, he adopted the moniker Assassin for a deliberate reason. While still a student at Camperdown High School, Assassin wrote “Big Up All The Shotta Dem,” which Spragga Benz recorded on the Street Sweeper riddim. Before long, he was recording for himself, and from “Ruffest,” his breakthrough hit on the Diwali riddim and through Infiltration, his critically acclaimed 2005 debut album on VP Records, Assassin distinguished himself in a musical arena known for bluster and bravado.
In 2013, Assassin was featured on the song “I’m in It” by American recording artist Kanye West on his 6th solo album, Yeezus. In February 2015, Assassin was featured on the song “The Blacker the Berry” by Grammy award winner Kendrick Lamar. It was certified gold after selling over 500,000 copies.
