Assassin Gully Sit’n

After burning up the Jamaican charts, Assassin has been dubbed the next mon to champion dancehall on an international level, and he’s got all the appropriate tools to make that ’appen: looks, hooks, and lyrics. With a fast-chat style somewhere between Buju Banton and Sean Paul, and a seemingly endless stream of niceness coming from his voice, he’s definitely a top-notch sound bwoi. Assassin’s style is straight yardie, with twisting cadences and a penchant for consciousness without the didacticism of dancehall’s Bobo set. However, there’s nothing on Gully Sit’n that absolutely screams “crossover”–good news for dancehall fans, but probably too much bashment for commercial radio.
