Quincy Jones has been hospitalized due to shortness of breath, the Associated Press reports. The 82-year-old producer was taken to a Los Angeles hospital yesterday (Sept. 17) at 1:20 p.m but is said to be feeling okay now.
His publicist, Arnold Robinson, told the AP that Jones was taken to the hospital “for observations out of caution after having breathing problems Thursday.”
Had a little shortness of breath, but all is good. Still much to do. God Bless. ❤️

Quincy Jones has been keeping busy though, and recently schooled Kendrick Lamar on hip-hop’s roots in Africa and much more for Hypetrak magazine.
