I. Am. OVERWHELMED. As you have probably seen from watching QUINCY, I didn’t have the best of childhoods (& that only scratched the surface of my every day life in the Southside of Chicago in the 30s & 40s) & I definitely wasn’t the kid you’d bet on ever becoming a “success.” Music was the one thing that offered me my freedom in a world where I had no place. Today marks my 80TH Grammy nomination...That’s almost 1 for every year I’ve been on this planet!!! ((:0)) 80/85. I already said it, but I’ll say it again...I. Am. OVERWHELMED. Thank-Q @recordingacademy & all-a-y’awl for your love & support on this beautiful journey of life....And a special congrats to my beautiful team. My baby doonkie @rashidajones, & the talented #AlHicks & @pauladuprepesmen. We share this honor TOGETHER & I couldn’t be more proud of you all...What absolutely beautiful news to go to bed to (y’awl know mornings are my bed time!!) \(^o^)/

((:0))...An absolute honor @bet! 📽: @dwheelz_bk

Just because we don’t talk about it every day doesn’t mean it’s not happening every day...#QUINCY @netflix

40s, 50s, 60s...2018...2019. It’s all about the mindset you choose to keep.

Man, my soul is STILL smilin’ from all the love y’awl showed me at my 85th bday celebration...
\(^o^)/ & I can’t wait for the rest of y’awl to see what an absolutely beautiful show my brothers & sisters put on for me. Check. It. OUT. This Sunday, 12/9/18, at 8/7c on @bet & @bethertv for “Q85: A Musical Celebration for Quincy Jones”! .

Enough said...

I can’t believe that today marks 35 YEARS since “Thriller” premiered on MTV!...We simply did what gave us the goosebumps, & that’s what we got!...Forever missin’ U Smelly & Worms...xxoo

It’s impossible to forget, but beautiful to reflect...What a journey it has been. I hope that QUINCY has inspired y’awl on some level & that U will keep on keepin’ on, even when they (whoever “they” may be for U) tell you that you’re not good enough, not smart enough, or just not enough. It’s time to say ENOUGH! Because YOU ARE, & more importantly, WE are ENOUGH!! \(^o^)/
