Elephant Man

Discovered by dancehall MC Bounty Killer, the Jamaican-born Elephant Man, née O'Neil Bryan, was originally a DJ and a member of the dancehall group Scare Dem Crew. The high-energy entertainer eventually went solo and released his hip hop infused debut Comin' 4 You in 2000. With 2003's "Pon de River, Pon de Bank" from his fifth album Good 2 Go, Elephant Man secured his name as a dancehall DJ with clout in the hip hop and pop arena, doing songs with Busta Rhymes and the Ying Yang Twins for Lil Jon's "Get Low" remix and collaborating with everyone from Will Smith to Rihanna. The MC performed "All Night (Don't Stop)" at the 2004 BET Awards.
