Papa San

Papa San is a Jamaican reggae, dancehall and gospel singer who began performing with sound systems (including Stereophonic the Bionic, Black Scorpio and Creation) in the late 1970s. He won the Tastee Talent contest in 1981. He went on to become one of the major dancehall artists of the late 1980s and 1990s, with hits such as “Animal Party, I will survive, style and fashion, Legal Rights & Round table talk feat. Lady G & Maddy Maddy Cry”. He has continued to produce his roots reggae sound, but with the message of Christ to the beat instead of his previously popular secular music.
In 2013, Papa San featured on Church Clothes, Vol 2 by Christian Hip Hop artist Lecrae, with Andy Mineo, on the song “The Fever”. His album One Blood topped the Billboard Reggae Albums Chart in February 2014.
