Elephant Man Biography

Elephant Man stormed through the doors of dancehall back in 1998 under the wing of Bounty Killa and the Scare Dem Crew (Boom Dandimite, Harry Toddler, Nitty Kutchie and Elephant Man) flexing his creative muscles while managing to successfully brand himself as ..Father Elephant,.. the self proclaimed Dancehall King. Elephant Man is solely responsible for reuniting dancehall music with dance and its fun, trouble-free roots, a vital element that..s been absent from the culture and replaced too often by a new wave of artists who glorify a bad mon, bad mind persona in their records. His debut, Good 2 Go (VP Records), became a worldwide smash back in 2004 with the release of chart topping party tunes like ..Signal di Plane.. and ..Pon di River, Pon di Bank,.. the single which snagged him a Source Award for ..Dancehall/Reggae Artist of the Year.. and the MTV2 nomination at the 2004 MTV Music Video Awards.

Since then, the hardcore Energy God hasn..t slowed down. He has recorded collaborations with Lil.. Jon on the ..Get Low Remix,.. R. Kelly on ..Reggae Bump Bump,.. Pitbull and Daddy Yankee on the ..Rah-Rah Remix,.. and Janet Jackson on ..All Nite (Don..t Stop),.. and also performed on stage at the 2004 BET Awards and signed with Diddy..s Bad Boy Records, all while preparing for the release of his sophomore album Let..s Get Physical (Bad Boy/VP Records).

Ele linked up with Diddy back in 2005 while opening for Usher on his Truth Tour. When Ele hit the stage with an electrifying performance, the Bad Boy CEO took notice. ..When he saw my performance he was like ..Yo, Elephant, we got to do this and I was ready,.. says Bad Boy..s first reggae act. Never abandoning VP, the label that nurtured and supported Ele from the beginning, Elephant Man is excited about his major label joint venture (Bad Boy/VP Records) and looking forward to making dancehall history with Sean Combs and the entire Bad Boy family. ..I been a fan of Bad Boy for the longest time and now I..m Bad Boy for life!,.. Ele laughs. ..We gonna take dancehall to another level. I..m looking forward to dropping this album and the doing all the promotion, cuz Diddy is creative, and with him and the Energy God together..It..s gonna be madness!..
