Elephant Man vies to dance into Billboard once again Image

With all the buzz surrounding the French Montana and Nicki Minaj single 'Freaks', Dancehall's 'Energy Gadd', Elephant Man, jumps on board for the official remix.

The single, which plays as a mash up of Chaka Demus and Pliers' 'Murder She Wrote' as well as the 1994 Jamaican-American rapper Lil' Vicious' beat-box-laced single 'Freaks' produced by Rico Love, shines as a beacon of hope for Elephant regaining his American-tied international career.

"It is an official remix. Hebrew from Hot 97 in the States contacted me to do it. Right now, the ting look good," Elephant Man shared with the press.

The remix features French Montana, Minaj, Edley Shine, Wyclef Jean and an era-grabbing verse from the 'Energy Gadd', displaying a side to his career that echoes the fact that he is far from unprepared when called upon to deliver.

Complied by DJ Suss One, who teamed up with the Refix Kings to do the song, the single carries the adrenaline filled song to a new height providing a more dancehall friendly backdrop, while keeping the track along the same lines of the original.

Formerly signed to Sean 'P Diddy' Coombs' Bad Boys Records, Elephant sees the remix as an opportunity to reach new audiences; evident in his move to capitalize on the Harlem Shake phenomenon, with the official video racking up close to 200,000 views on YouTube since its release.

"The other day, I went to do radio promotions in Brooklyn and the thing tun up, everybody ah Harlem Shake," he said.

Elephant Man recently released a slew of new singles inclusive of Wata Rave, featuring Lovindeer and the gospel-laced God Never Fails.

"The selectors love God Never Fails, dem say it remind them of my other hit, Too Bad Mind, and that it come along right now, worse at a time like this with so many spiritual, emotional and economic struggles; it connects," Elephant Man said.

"Right now, dancehall nice again, the key is to get the spins," he said.
