Item number 47 on my bucket list reads “meet Quincy Jones.” At this point in life, I write about music. Quincy, on the other hand, has been living it for the past Lord knows how many years. It’s not about asking for a job or an autograph, unless he’d be willing to supply both. What it would really boil down to is simply talking music with the guy. The tours, the studio sessions, the experiences, I want to hear it all because I promise you this – expecting to witness the second coming of Quincy Jones is, like my grandmother says, trying to argue with a light pole.
Q has accomplished enough to fill 25 careers and any project nowadays is simply to ensure his name stays in the pulse of today’s market. His new album Q: Soul Bossa Nostra hits stores next week with a list of today’s stars making guest appearences. On the surface, most people are going to hate T-Pain and Robin Thicke’s remake of Mike Jackson’s “P.Y.T.” Fact is, it doesn’t hold a candle to the original, but what would? The 2010 version will catch flack for obvious reasons, but I can’t say Akon’s first cash-cow was completely out of line during his Twitter rant earlier today.
For all the ppl that hate mr for ruining pyt just stop listening to my shit. But if Quincy jones tell you he want you to do something, no matter how much shot you know ur gonna get from the dumb asses in the world, you god damn do it. The fucked up thing is everybody being so kind to mj after he’s gone, but how can you wish a man to rest in peace when you never gave him peace in a life time? I had the pleasure of meeting MJ and when I left his house I got a call from his lawyer telling mr that MJ wanted me to remake that song. So everybody that’s being overly disrespectful, you don’t have to like me at all, but you also can keep that bullshit to yourself. Like I said I’m making it my job to stay positive on twitter but this is why the image of my ppl is so fucked up cuz we all are to envious and jealous of each other to get passed anything. In conclusion, if you don’t like what I do then stop listening to it, if somebody tells you that my shit is wak, why would you go and try to find it? Just stay off my timeline and my dick and get YO shit together, obviously I’m str8 yasimelike
