When I think of the future, I think a lot of Quincy Jones and how he is an inspiration. Look at the quality of his work over so many years.

Nothing pulls you back into the studio more than the belief that your best record is still ahead.

No matter what looms ahead, if you can eat today, enjoy today, mix good cheer with friends today enjoy it and bless God for it.
Henry Ward Beecher

We are a continuum. Just as we reach back to our ancestors for our fundamental values, so we, as guardians of that legacy, must reach ahead to our children and their children. And we do so with a sense of sacredness in that reaching.
You need to impress me, outwit me, compete with me? Go ahead, knock yourself out, I have no problem with that at all.
Today, the biggest challenge we must meet is the one we present to ourselves. To not become a nation that places entitlement ahead of accomplishment.

I've been around a long time, and when I was at the top of the hill, I was very ahead of my time! Evidence of that is that my music is still current today - you know, rappers sample it all the time. So, rather than compromise my artistic integrity, I concentrated on movies.
