Born in Bedstuy, Brooklyn, NY, 60 Second Assassin is a pretty mysterious figure, who's mostly known for his unique dirty style and voice.
His name represents the assassination of negative thoughts, not people. His Sunz of Man's Comrade, Hell Razah explains: "He says everything in one minute. That's why he rhymes the way he does. He assassinates negativity. But before the sixtieth second strikes on the clock, he on me. Actually he goes to the other wall, it places yourself at an advantage, you comin' for something N' he is already there, he already done figured it out before you came with it, basically. But give him sixty seconds which is one minute, he will assassinate something that is negative." His first known appearance on a record was on the late Ol' Dirty Bastard's debut album, where he sang on the promo cut "Dirty N Stinkin" and on "Protect Ya Neck II The Zoo" along with fellow Sunz of Man members Killah Priest, Hell Razah, Shabazz The Disciple and Prodigal Sunn, but his most famous appearance was on Raekwon's album, "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx...", in the song "Glaciers of Ice".
He only sings in the end of the song, but this is where you can find him first say his famous "It's been a looong time..." sentence. He was also featured on numerous projects and collabos amongst all the Sunz of Man's albums. Sunz of Man were the first group ever affiliated with The Wu-Tang Clan amongst Killarmy and Gravediggaz. All active members have gone on to release solo materials except for 60 Second Assassin, and as the title of their first album indicates "The Last Shall Be First " 60 Sec after so many years of of a promised solo album drops his début "Remarkable Timing" featuring the production skills of Bronze Nazareth and a live band with a full guest list Wu fans would die for. This project would not have been possible without the intervention of M-80, the A&R and brain behind releases such as "Think Differently : Wu-Tang meets Indie Culture" The Almighty Project, and much more.
