And we’re also loving his collabo with Amy Winehouse “Cherry Wine,” which we hear is nearly a decade old, but fits perfectly with the rest of what we’ve heard so far.

In a recent interview Nas explained how the song came to be:

Among its highlights is Cherry Wine, featuring the late Amy Winehouse. On Me and Mr Jones from Back to Black, she’d sung about being pissed off at the prospect of missing a Nas gig; Salaam Remi worked on that record, and before its release in 2006, he effected an introduction. “He said: ‘There’s this girl, you guys are just alike, you write the same, you think alike, you share the same birthday,” Nas recalls.

“She was wise way beyond her years, dude. She was too wise. Man, she would call me and I’d be laughing the entire conversation,” he laughs. “We’d be talking about movies, music … she wouldn’t soften the blow when she said what she had to say, it didn’t matter who she was talking about.”

We never would have thought that Nas and Amy would have had so much in common, but we loved reading about his friendship with her. She’s definitely missed.

R.I.P. Amy
