Elephant Man

'Good' Vibrations

ManVP Records and Atlantic Records are looking to repeat the mainstream success of dancehall reggae acts Sean Paul and Wayne Wonder with their partnership on Elephant Man's "Good 2 Go."

Due this week, the album serves as the dancehall veteran's full-length debut. Elephant Man owes much of his recent success to the album's lead single, "Pon De River, Pon De Bank," which peaked at No. 29 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart.

"I knew it would take off because I put my all into it," Elephant Man says. "I made sure that it was an exclusive -- I didn't waste it on a riddim that everybody was going to be on. I didn't know it would reach this far, but I knew that it would break, because the song is one that anyone could catch on to."

Other guests on the set include Lil' Jon, Bonecrusher and Killah Priest.
