Are you telling me that you never heard of Q before he produced MJ??? The reason that Q was chosen to produce MJ in the first place was because of his enormous body of work. No one else could have produced MJ and made him into the superstar that he is/was besides Q. As I have stated before, MJ did not come close to having the sales that he had with Q, on his post Q albums - he was still making money from "Thriller" when "Awful", I mean, "Bad" came out.

BTW - Quincty's website lists the following musicians/groups that he worked with: Michael Jackson, 98˚, Tevin Campbell...

Any of those come anywhere near MJ? If Q was so talented why isn't Tevin Campbell MJ? He can sing better than MJ. He can dance. So what he's 4'2"? lol
You neglected to mention that he has done numerous movie soundtracks, numerous tv show themes, he has worked with Miles, Dizzy, Train, Monk... just about anybody who is anybody in music, across all genres... (He produced "We Are the World") Has his own tv production co. which produced the hugely successful "The fresh Prince of Belair" among others... He did not need MJ, MJ needed him.

Again, Tevin self destructed.

I'm pretty sure that MJ did more for Q than vice versa. How many of those artists do you think he got because he worked with MJ? Can you imagine if Jimmy Jam and Terry L. got Mike from the jump? ek
Me don' tink so... nono
