When Quincy Jones a musical genius speaks people pay attention and listen, and during Spotify’s Launch Event he had a lot to say about Diddy and we are all ears.
Puff’s fame generates from his
lack of dancing ability, his eye for talent, his business ventures, and his overall ability to take and mold an artist only to sh*t on em down the line ie …Craig Mack, The Lox, Total, Making the Band, need I go on.
Quincy Jones pegged him right when he made the statement ‘Diddy wouldn’t know a B Flat if it hit him.’
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.
Though Jones’ comments might strike some as a welcome rebuke of Diddy’s reputation as one of the most influential men in hip-hop, the situation is slightly more complicated. Though Diddy is probably not a fantastic musician, he has proven (time and time again) to have a great ear. After all, this is the man that signed not only Faith Evans, 112, Cassie and Mario Winans, but also Biggie Smalls. (That said, it could be argued that his biggest musical achievement was stumbling upon and fostering Notorious B.I.G., which was decades ago).
Mediajuicejoint- You gotta love Quincy Jones he’s too old to play games and tell lies. Diddy might have these other industry catz shook but , not Mr. Jones, he gives it to you str8 with no chaser.
