Dancehall Tours - hosted by Pantason - Episode 16 - Elephant Man
Welcome to Dancehall Tours a series where we interview artists about how cannabis plays a part in their music.
Today our host Pantason interviews Dancehall artiste Elephant Man. He started out his musical career in 1995 as a member of the Scare Dem Crew, later continuing as a solo artist and was characterised for several trademarks, such as his dyed yellow-orange hair, his unique low-key voice, and his stage performance, which included jumping and running, or even climbing on stage props and monitors.
Elephant man had his first international recognition when he and Puma settled a contract for using his single "All Out" for its Olympics commercial campaign in 2004. The Gully Creeper dance, for which he created a song, was danced by Usain Bolt at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing after winning the gold medal and breaking a world record in the 200 meter sprint.
