Quincy Jones Says He Can’t Handle Lil Wayne

Published

Quincy Jones has spent the majority of his life working with the greatest musicians of all time and is pretty certain that he can pick a bad apple when he sees one. In a recent interview with The National, the 81-year-old producer expressed that he has no love for the music that Lil Wayne makes.

Let’s get real, man. When you come from the era of Ray Charles, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Frank Sinatra and Michael Jackson, it gets hard to get used to Lil Wayne. I just can’t handle it. There are some good singers out there. Mary J Blige can sing, so can Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera. I know who they are. I also know who they aren’t, too.

This is not the first time Quincy has taken shots at rap artists, in 2012, he said that Diddy “wouldn’t know a B-flat if it hit him” and in 2010 he said there was no way that Kanye West could be compared to him.

No way. Did he write for a symphony orchestra? Does he write for a jazz orchestra? Come on, man. He’s just a rapper. There’s no comparison. I’m not putting him down or making a judgement or anything, but we come from two different sides of the planet.

Lil’ Wayne may bear the brunt of the criticism from Quincy not because of his music but rather because of legal trouble between the Jones family and the YMCMB leader. In 2012, Wayne attempted to sue Quincy’s son, Quincy Jones III, for using his music in a The Carter documentary. Wayne was countersued and had to pay Quincy’s son 2 million in damages.

“It’s not a scripted show. This isn’t something from the network. We control all this. It’s about time that the people see some real reality s**t. Thank God for Mona Scott Young. She definitely deserves some credit. Even to get the opportunity to get on the platform. But it’s up to you how to you to be represented to the world.”
