Quincy Delight Jones III (born 23 December 1968) (also known as QDIII, QD3 and Snoopy) is a composer, music producer, film producer, and author.


Quincy Delight Jones III was born in Wimbledon, London, the son of Swedish model Ulla Andersson and her American husband Quincy Jones, a musician and music producer.[1] He grew up in Sweden with his older sister Martina after their parents legally separated.[2] The two have five American half-sisters by their father's two other marriages and relationships in the United States, including the actresses Kidada and Rashida Jones.

A Swedish citizen, Jones has two children, Quincy Renzo Delight Jones IV and Nea Jones.[according to whom?]

Business ventures[edit]

Quincy Jones III is the founder of QD3 Entertainment, which has produced a series of documentaries called Beef. These explore the violence and feuds within hip hop culture.[3] Jones is also a hip hop DJ; he released an album called Soundlab (1991).

On November 4, 2009, Chamillionaire launched the Global Innovation Tournament 2009 with Quincy Jones III at Stanford University as part of the Stanford Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders Seminar Series.

He is known for his The Carter (2009) documentary, about rapper Lil Wayne. The rapper filed a lawsuit to prevent distribution because he wanted control over the final cut, but the case was dismissed by the judge. A Huffington Post review ranked it as one of the top five movies about hip-hop.

In January 2014 he founded WeMash, an Internet service that connects owners of content (movie studios, news organizations, sports entities, music labels/publishers) with creators from every field (video artists, filmmakers, musicians, and more) to re-imagine content beyond its original context. Investors include venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz.[4]
