San was born in music, because his father was in the sound system business.

He was raise by his grandmother who was a Rastafarian, so he was taught the doctrines of the Rastafarian religion.

Because of his lightening fast deejaying/toasting, he was given the nick-name Marathon Man.

San as he is also called, recorded his first hit in the mid 1980s while he was still a teenager.

In the late 1980s-early 1990s he was the most popular artist in Jamaica. He has the record for the longest #1 song in Jamaica.

Some of his chart toppers songs are: "I will survive", "Legal rights" a collaboration with Lady G and "Maddy Maddy Cry", among many others.

Papa San said it was artists such as Bob Marley, Dennis Brown and John Holt who inspired him in the music business.

His father was not the only other person in his family who was involved in music. Dirstman who was murdered in 1993 was his brother and he was a dancehall artiste.

Before turning to Christianity in 1997, he had a lyrical war with Lt. Stichie. This was a contest to show who could Rap/DJ the fastest. No winner was declared.

San is now (2010) a gospel artist. Currently living with his family in Florida.
