(AllHipHop News) Quincy Jones has worked with iconic musicians like Dizzy Gillespie, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Sarah Vaughan, Michael Jackson, and more.

After a seven-decade career in the music industry, Jones still pays attention to contemporary artists.

The music legend recently held a star-studded event in Los Angeles where he gave a shout out to a few of today’s top stars.

Billboard reports:

During the session, Jones admitted he’s a fan of Kendrick Lamar, The Weeknd and Bruno Mars, and although he’s worked with his share of iconic artists, there are a few he regrets never having made music with.

Kendrick actually sat down with Hypetrak magazine for an exclusive one-on-one discussion with Jones in 2015.

The 84-year-old instrumentalist has released over three dozen albums and produced numerous others.

His 1989 album Back on the Block won seven Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year.

Q’s Jook Joint from 1995 featured Hip Hop representatives Kid Capri, Funkmaster Flex, LL Cool J, Töne Löc, Queen Latifah, and Heavy D.

Jones was also the executive producer for Michael Jackson’s masterpiece Thriller.
