Tributes to Lincoln 'Sugar' Minott

The world has been shocked to hear of the
passing of Sugar Minott.  He is a legend who
has come to touch the lives of all who heard
his music, and the music he produced.
The countless hours he spent developing new
and existing talent, the constant promotion he
gave to his projects, and his genuine love and
passion for the music all contributed to every
accolade he earned over his 30 plus years in
music.  He deserved it!  Visiting the Black Roots
studio gives you a first hand look at his love,
and his impact on the community.
When people (fans) are asked what they loved
most about Sugar, respondents weren't sure
how to answer the question as it was an equal
split in favour of his music, his live performance,
the message in the music and how he treats
the community.
When disc jocks (radio, dancehall and vintage
mixtapes) are asked, they talk about the vibes
in the music.  When asked, Richard Banton spoke
about the chune "Mr. DC," while Lady Loy profiled
the quality of Sugar's music and the chune "Good
Thing Going." 
Sugar Minott will be missed.  As we celebrate
his life, and his beautiful musical memories,
take in Lady Loy's tribute, as well as Komposti
Sound's tribute at the links below.  You can
also watch the last known interview with Sugar
as he talks about 'Holding on to Jah.'
As always, catch a handful of Sugar's chunes on
various riddims at 320kbps here:
