“And the last two things to leave this planet, will be water and music” – Quincy Jones
Kendrick Lamar continues his unique interviews after the previous one with N.W.A. We are enjoying to hear K.Dot talk with artist legends that he looked up to. He relates his experiences to Quincy Jones and also to the generation coming up . During his chat with Lamar, which took place for Hypetrak, they discussed Michael Jackson’s Thriller, the differences between making music today and in the ’80s, and Jones’ view of the current generation.
“We went through 800 songs,” Jones says, “’cause I learned 50 years ago that a great song can make the worst singer a star and a bad song can not be saved by the three best singers in the world. So we went through 800 for Michael. We got a great singer. He’s got a great song. It’s over.”
