The above quotes are from his interview with US Weekly…diss to Kanye? Honest opinion? Doesn’t matter, because he quickly took to his website:
â€œIâ€™d appreciate it if people didnâ€™t take my comments about Kanye West ( @KanyeWest ) or anyone else for that matter out of context to contrive a story. I have nothing but respect for my little brother Kanye and what he has achieved in his young career and I look forward to watching his evolution as an artist. There is a reason why we put him on the new We Are The World 25 for Haiti â€“ heâ€™s a great rapper. But having been in the music business for more than 60 years and having been fortunate to accomplish what I have over that time, itâ€™s not unreasonable to put a comparison of Kanye at this time in his career and myself into the proper perspective. This is not dissing Kanye, this is simply trying to express that Iâ€™m not a rapper! I donâ€™t need to take anyone elseâ€™s props away from them. Letâ€™s all just try and keep the record straight.â€ â€“ Quincy D. Jones â€“ 11/22/2010
Yeeeaaa…I guess I can understand his point.
