The iconic producer started to experience shortness of breath around 1:20 p.m. at his Bel Air home, and was rushed to a local Los Angeles hospital, according to police. “Quincy had some shortness of breath and in an abundance of caution he went in for observation,” a rep for the 81-year-old told TMZ. “He is fine.”
