Santana became very interested in music at a young age, having learned the drums since he was four, pretty much teaching himself how to play music. He grew up in a heavily musical environment where his father would promote music to his family and inspire Santana to do whatever he wanted to do in life. Chink originally started his career as part of the group Cap City Outzyda Clique (CCOC), and the Junkyard Band. As part of these groups, he also managed the production side of their music and caught the attention of Irv Gotti, who offered Santana the chance to become a producer at Murder Inc. Records which was the turning point of his career and net worth.
During his career in Murder Inc. he became responsible for the production and release of many popular albums. Ashanti’s debut self-titled album won multiple awards and was produced by him, and he also worked on her second album “Chapter II” which went on to become number 1 on various charts. “Chapter II” had a few songs in several Top 10 listings and became a double-platinum selling album. A year later Santana worked on Ashanti’s third album called “Concrete Rose”, and helped produce a few songs that boosted the album to platinum success. He became part of the album “Hustler P.O.M.E. (Product of My Environment”), by Jim Jones and also the second album of the English Ms. Dynamite entitled “Judgement Days”. Other artists that Santana has worked with include Beyonce, Ja Rule, Lil Wayne, T.I., Toni Braxton, and many more.
Aside from the music he’s help maKe, he appeared in the music videos of the various artists he produced. A few of these include Keyshia Cole’s “I Should Have Cheated” which featured Chink as the cheating boyfriend. Another is Ashanti’s “Don’t’ Let Them” in which he appears as her love interest. Recently, Santana has been seen as a part of the televisions series “Love & Hip Hop” as a recurring guest, a show which follows the women involved in the hip hop and rap industry.
