In Quincy Jones‘ instantly-legendary interview with Vulture, he spilled all of the tea. One moment of music history that he shed light on was the making of his 2010 tribute album, “Q: Soul Bossa Nostra.”Quincy said he wasn’t super into the idea, but a bunch of rappers wanted to record an album of versions of songs he has done over his career.
