One of Michael Jackson’s mentors, Quincy Jones, believes Xscape is about nothing more than a means for more money.

The 81-year-old music producer and philanthropist sat down in an interview with Canada CBC Radio’s Jian Ghomeshi  on Tuesday, and he’s not feeling the motives behind Xscape, the latest posthumous album from the “King Of Pop.”

“They’re trying to make money,” said Quincy. “And I understand it. Everybody’s after money, the estate, the lawyers. It’s about money.”

The tandem of Michael Jackson and Quincy were responsible for some the greatest albums in the pop star’s career, including Thriller, Off The Wall and Bad.
