Legendary producer Quincy Jones became the first composer to get his hand and footprints imprinted at Hollywood's TCL Chinese Theatre on Tuesday. Snoop Dogg, Usher and Quincy's daughter Rashida Jones all gave speeches praising his musical career. Dr. Dre and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar also attended the ceremony.

Jones took to Twitter to give his thanks for the years of support from friends and family. 

A Netflix documentary following his life and career was released on Sept. 21 and is available now. Over the span of his career, Jones received an impressive 79 Grammy Award nominations, 27 Grammy wins, and a Grammy Legend Award in 1992. Despite decades of a successful career, he revealed to Billboard in an interview earlier this year that he's not stopping anytime soon.

“I was thinking about retiring," he said. "But I think I’m going to let somebody else do that."
