San Quinn began in the early '90s alongside J.T. the Bigga Figga and recorded for J.T.'s Get Low label for several years before breaking away at the end of the decade. The Cali Bay Area rapper began making his mark in 1994, when he contributed to the first two official Get Low releases, J.T.'s Playaz N' the Game and the Get Low Playaz's Straight Out the Labb. Before that Quinn had recorded an underground album, Don't Cross Me (re-released by Get Low in 2000), and afterward he recorded a pair of Get Low albums, Live N Direct (1996) and Hustle Continues (1996), both distributed widely by Priority. Quinn then moved on, leaving behind J.T. the Bigga Figga and Get Low for new opportunities. He teamed with Messy Marv on Explosive Mode (1998) and then began recording solo albums for various independent labels, beginning with The Mighty Quinn (2001) for Champeli.
