About Sugar Minott

Born Lincoln Barrington Minott in Kingston, Jamaica, reggae star Sugar Minott got his first real career boost by apprenticing at producer Coxsone Dodd's Studio One in the late 1970s. After a series of Studio One singles and albums, Minott founded his own Black Roots label, and also concentrated on helping the youth in Kingston’s ghettos. A versatile performer equally at home in the dancehall, dub, lovers rock, and roots reggae styles, Minott has earned a respectable following abroad, most notably in England.
