Lincoln Barrington ' Sugar ' Minott (Kingston25 may 1956 - July 10, 2010) was a Jamaican reggae singermusic producer and musician.

Sugar Minott made his debut with the "sound system" by the Sound of Silence Keytone. In 1969, he became member of the group African Brothers with Tony Tuff and Derrick Howard, with which he released songs as Party Time. After No Cup No Broke in 1974 the group apart. Then he worked for Studio One by Clement ' Coxsone ' Dodd. Reggae was not widely distributed yet on Jamaica and the then radio stations only played American soul. Studio One recovered when the departure of Alton Ellis,Ken Boothe and John Holt. Sugar Minott bore a major contribution to the revival of the label with numbers as Vanity (his first hit, in 1978), Oh Mr. DC and Hang on Natty.His solo career with original songs truly began with the song Hard Time Pressure from 1979 that Kyd in England . He moved to the United Kingdom and helped to make known the reggae.

Back in Jamaica, he set up his own label Black Roots on. He signed artists such as Barry BrownTristan Palmer, Tony Tuff and later Junior ReidYami BoloSteelie & Clevie and Fire Fox. His biggest success with Black Roots, however, was the first issue of Garnett Silk.
