ELEPHANT MAN FOR HOT 97 SUMMER JAM
Without a doubt, one of the hottest jams for the summer is the Hot 97 Summer Jam.
Scheduled to take place on June 7 at the Giants Stadium in New Jersey, the organizers make every effort to select artistes from every genre who are in keeping with the image of the show — HOT.
Representing the dancehall, will be the energy god himself, Elephant Man, who bas been on a rollicking roll with songs such as Nuh Linga and Sweep. Known for his feverishly hot performances which sometimes see him climbing atop speaker boxes and doing other daredevil stunts, Elephant is eagerly anticipating this chance to perform for his fans and bring in some new converts.
After sweeping all local and some international charts in 2008, Nuh Linga was put in rotation on Hot 97, two months ago and subsequently danced its way into the Billboard Chart. The song made its debut at number 100 on the Billboard R&B Hip Hop Singles & Tracks chart at the end of April and soon moved up 16 places.
Other big names on slated to perform on the show are Mary J. Blige, T-Pain, The Dream, Young Jeezy, JadaKiss, Jim Jones and Juelz Santana. Also representing the dancehall are Mavado and Serani.
