Nas Speaks On Amy Winehouse, Collaboration With Dr. Dre For "Detox"

Nasir Jones recalls the fallen songstress and promises an ill collaboration with the West Coast veteran.

Throughout her music career, Amy Winehouse made her love for Nas known, sampling his track “Made You Look” for her song “In My Bed” and supposedly writing “Me and Mr. Jones” about the rapper. Speaking with “106 & Park” hostess Rocsi Diaz, the Queens, New York native recalled the impact that the fallen singer had on his life.

“She was a genuine person, she was real. When you talked to her, she was real, he said. “She was struggling with a lot of things in her life, but she was a real artist. She was like a sister to me, like a little sister. We had the same birthday so she just had this big, big spirit for this little body. I wish she was here today. God bless her soul.”

He also spoke on Dr. Dre’s oft-delayed Detox, stating that the record that he has on the LP with the West Coast veteran is worth the wait.

“Dre is the king of the gangsta music. I just did something for his new album Detox, so I’m waiting for it,” he said. “We got a nice record.”
