Yesterday Vulture published an in-depth interview with Quincy Jones which once again found the music legend refusing to hold his tongue. Jones pretty much trashed a number of respected artists, insisting that Michael Jackson stole music, The Beatles were “no-playing motherfuckers,” rock is a “white version of rhythm and blues,” and much more.
In addition, Quincy spoke on Soul Bossa Nova, a 2010 compilation album that saw various musicians covering Jones’s biggest hits, The FADER points out. Specifically, the 84-year-old composer/producer pointed out that “T-Pain, man, he didn’t pay attention to the details,” when covering “PYT” with Robin Thicke.
Since, T-Pain has taken to social media to respond to Jones’s criticism.
Most notably, as you can see, T-Pain commented that, “It just seems like @QuincyDJones is pissed off at the whole world.”
It’s hard to refute such a statement as Jones continues to unearth secrets and, for lack of a better word, shit on a number of his contemporaries.
Nonetheless, you can revisit the standout quotes from Vulture‘s Quincy Jones interview here.
