Words by Amber McKynzie


With the last name Jones, there’s no question that success is literally right around the corner, at least that’s true in Hollywood. Quincy Jones is a multi-platinum record-winning producer, and has everything to show for it—including his family. While it may seem like a magic trick, as the Chicago-born legend spent much of his career traveling from country to country, he still made time to play father every now and then to his seven children—Jolie, Martina, Quincy III (QDIII), Kadida, Rashida, Rachel and Kenya. 


All seven children didn’t walk behind their father into the walls of a recording studio, but they certainly found their way in and around Tinseltown. From super producer to super model, the Jones’ kids have pretty much done it all.
