Hyman Wright (also known as Papa Life) is a record producer and audio engineer from Kingston, Jamaica, who has produced more than 150 reggae singles, mostly through his Brooklyn-based record label, Jah Life, which he founded in the late 1970s.

In 1981 Hyman Wright produced one of Eek-A-Mouse's first singles, "Georgie Porgie". After Wright and Barrington Levy met in 1979, Wright produced a number of Levy's early releases. Among these are "Black Roses" (1983) and "Murderer" (1984); the latter Wright co-produced with long-time collaborator Patrick Chin.
