Bataan was born and raised in New York City. His mother was African-American; his father was Filipino. Starting at age 15, he spent five years in prison for riding in a stolen vehicle, according to his web site. Bataan had his first recording success in 1967 with "Gypsy Woman." The song became a hit in New York’s Latino community. He later worked as a counselor for young people in prison.
