Quincy Jones did a controversial interview with Vulture where he revealed a lot! He talked about Michael Jackson, the assassination of J.F. Kennedy, and more. It was one particular question that sparked a string of tweets from hip hop artist, T-Pain.
What’s the last mistake you learned from?My last record [2010’s Q: Soul Bossa Nostra]. I was not in favor of doing it, but the rappers wanted to record something as a tribute to me, where they’d do versions of songs that I’d done over my career. I said to them, “Look, you got to make the music better than we did on the originals.” That didn’t happen. T-Pain, man, he didn’t pay attention to the details.
