 ReggaeTrain.com...your portal to Reggae music...(Biography [Sugar Minott])
Although Minott scored a number of hits for Studio One, he was less well known at home than in Britain, where his self-produced 1979 effort "Hard Time Pressure" was an underground smash; he soon relocated to the UK, where he continued to find success with a number of records in the lover's rock style.
Minott was probably reggae music's brightest hope throughout the early 80s, but his refusal to compromise and turn his back on either his roots or his ghetto companions has marginalized his influence, and he is now a peripheral figure, as opposed to the major force that he arguably deserves to be.
Minott first recorded in the mid-70s as one of the African Brothers with Tony Tuff and Derrick Howard for a variety of Kingston producers; a couple of all-time classics evolved from this period, including "Torturing" and "Party Night".

Sugar Minott was probably an obvious artist to attain success and make an impact at that juncture in the music's history, because he had paid his dues and paid attention starting in 1974 at Coxson Dodd's Studio One - reggae's de facto college.
Minott's first recording effort after leaving Studio One in 1979 was the self-produced Ghetto-ology album, recorded on a shoestring budget and with the donated musicianship of the Soul Syndicate musicians.
Minott's dedication to launching young talent has always been to his credit, and he is acknowledged as the first producer to record the late Garnett Silk.
