Quincy Jones is certainly one of the most influential producers of all time, having lent his midas touch to everyone from Ray Charles to Michael Jackson. As such, he's an authority on music and is entitled to give his opinion on the careers of others in the industry. And on Tuesday, he had Diddy on his mind.
Speaking at a Spotify launch event (the streaming service was announcing artist-curated playlists), Jones said that the rapper and Bad Boy head honcho "couldn't recognize a b flat if it hit him." Instead, Jones noted, "P. Diddy has a doctorate in marketing," citing his clothing labels and success with Ciroc (his vodka company) as the rapper's true talents.

ooo.. child.. no he didn't!!!!!! diddy suit is way better than quincy's!! who he think he is?!?!?!?



./end sarcasm.
Somebody who knows a Bb <grin>.

Diddy is one of several successful 'musicians' these days who, it is true, are not truly musicians in the sense of having a grasp of music theory. Instead of writing original music, they sample music performed by others.
