Known for his on-stage antics and his colourful hair, Elephant Man, affectionately called 'Elle', signed an album deal with Sean 'Puffy' Coombs' Bad Boy Records in 2006, through his label VP Records. The VP/Bad Boy deal should see the release of an album, which has already been completed, and which boasts an enviable line-up of other international acts in combination with the deejay. The album is entitled Let's Get Physical and has a tentative release date of April 29.
Emphasizing that Girl Tonight will be his international single, Elle revealed that he is working on tunes that will keep him blazing "a yard". One such song is the single entitled Gully Creeper, which has started to build a "niceness" vibes in the dancehall.
