Tyrone Thompson,[1][2] better known as Papa San, is a Jamaican reggae, dancehall and gospel singer. Born in 1966[3 ], he was raised by his Rastafarian grandmother and turned to Christianity in 1997.[3 ] This is also reflected in his style, as he started off as a true dancehall deejay, later adopting traits of Gospel and Christian music.[1][2]

He is the brother of Dirtsman, who was murdered in 1993. He has five children and lives in Weston, Florida. He is the only artist that has performed at Sting, Jamaica's biggest one-evening festival, every year since it was created.[4]
