One Name: QDIII


Quincy Jones III, better known to the entertainment world as QD3, is the second child of Ulla and Quincy. As the legendary music producer’s only son, QD3 had no problem becoming his father’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 he’s produced records for Ice Cube, Tupac, LL Cool J, Prince, Queen Latifah and the list goes on. While there’s no question his father influenced his career, QDIII can’t go without thanking Dr. Dre for bringing him into Ruthless records—when they existed—and helping breakout into a business that may have never been the same without him.
