Sugar Minott (born Lincoln Barrington Minott, May 25, 1956, in Kingston) is a jamaican reggae singer, producer and sound-system operator known for his sweet roots dancehall style.
Sugar Minott spent his youth hanging around the legendary “Studio 1” listening to the artists that recorded there, such as Alton Ellis, Ken Boothe, The Heptones, Dennis Brown and others.
When the young Lincoln ‘Sugar’ Minott started recording at Studio 1, he didn’t use a backing band as in conventional recording, but elected to sing over instrumental versions of old Studio 1 classics.
This is considered to be the birth of “dancehall,” which lead to countless artists making new hits out of old classics, a tradition that continues in Jamaica today....
