Good 2 Go [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
Had Sean Paul and Wayne Wonder not made the dents they did in urban radio, most of dancehall-deprived America may have never had a chance to hear Elephant Man's brilliant "Pon de River Pon de Bank," the only pure dancehall track to crack the charts since the genre got more reckless and hyper post-Shabba. It's a fantastic single and Good 2 Go surrounds it in standard dancehall album style: some killer, some filler, and at least one truly misguided moment. Elephant Man singing to the tune of Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger" on "Fan Dem Off" supplies the misguided moment, but there are 19 other tracks to choose from with the filler being better than usual and the killer being ...

It's a fantastic single and Good 2 Go surrounds it in standard dancehall album style: some killer, some filler, and at least one truly misguided moment. Elephant Man singing to the tune of Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger" on "Fan Dem Off" supplies the misguided moment, but there are 19 other tracks to choose from with the filler being better than usual and the killer being just what kicking stereos crave. Besides the pumping and infectious "River," there's the deep and ominous chant of "Jamaica" and a perfectly executed team-up with Killah Priest on the hypnotic and smoke-filled "Who We Are." Joel Chin a member of the family that started the VP label/dynasty contributes production that is both quirky and breezy on "Cock Up Your Bumper," with the usually brash Elephant Man prattling on about "yellow underwear" like a tripped-out Harry Belafonte. Moments like this make Good 2 Go a good listen, but being a bit overstuffed and some bad production decisions "Signal de Plane" fades out way too soon keep it from being a classic. Of course, the rules of dancehall don't really allow for Sgt. Pepper's-style opuses. A straight-up dancehall album with the charismatic Elephant Man's smart-aleck spin, Good 2 Go focuses on an energetic artist in his prime with little refinement. You can pick and choose your favorite raw, head-bobbing moments and grin away.
Entertainment Weekly - Michael Endelman
Good is unruly and infectious -- even if you can't decipher Elephant Man's dense patois.

    One of the best reggae albums out this year so far!!!!

    I love this cd! I first enjoyed it after hearing the first two singles, "Pon de River, Pon de Bank", and "Jook Gal", and also "Jamaica" and "Signal de Plane", but after hearing the whole cd, I'm so happy to have made this purchase because he is just an amazing Jamaican performer and entertainer. I really like how he threw in that mexican flava at the end of the cd. Good 2 Go, I love, love, LOVE IT!

    I don't understand...

    why one of my co-workers didn't like this cd. She gave me her burnt copy and I absolutely loved it. It took all of my self control not to get up and dance on the "El" because every beat was tight! When I got in my car, it was over with! I head-danced all the way home. I love "F**k you Sign" and the song about Jamaica where somebody is rapping at the beginning (I think it's #11). Now that I've heard it, I'll go out and buy the real thing.

    Pon de River Pon de Bank

    The best of the best!!! Elephant Man’s “Good 2 Go” album is my all time favorite CD in the world. His unique style of reggae and hip-hop brings the whole dance floor together. Trust me on this, I know. Knowing that he was a reggae artist, I had to buy his album “Good 2 Go” because I honestly love reggae. From the late Bob Marley to the hip Sean Paul, I have been listening to this beautiful type of music nearly all my life and when Elephant Man got introduced to the picture I knew this CD was going to be a huge hit! Dancing to reggae is probably the easiest way to learn how to get down. His hypnotic music just takes control of your body and you have no choice but to dance the whole night through. This CD includes up-tempo beats that anyone can dance to and mesmerizing lyrics that draw you into a state of total krunkness.
