Quincy Jones III, better known to the entertainment world as QD3, is the second child of Ulla and Quincy. As the legendary music producerâ€™s only son, QD3 had no problem becoming his fatherâ€™s mini me. While he was born in London, little Quincy grew up in Sweden where he first acquired his love for hip-hop touring as a break dancer. He eventually started producing records for local groups and earned his first gold record by 16.
Quincy later moved to New York to pursue a career in music, and has clearly never looked back. Over the years heâ€™s produced records for Ice Cube, Tupac, LL Cool J, Prince, Queen Latifah and the list goes on. While thereâ€™s no question his father influenced his career, QDIII canâ€™t go without thanking Dr. Dre for bringing him into Ruthless recordsâ€”when they existedâ€”and helping breakout into a business that may have never been the same without him.
