Nas Puts Some Respect On Amy Winehouse's Name


New York rapper Nas knows there's more than just one music superstar with the same birthday as him. The hip-hop veteran has saluted late soulful singer Amy Winehouse on her b-day.

Nasty Nas hit up Instagram Thursday (September 14) to remember his longtime friend and past collaborator.

Back in October 2011, Nas fessed up to Amy penning her classic "Me & Mr. Jones" with him on her mind.

Nas confirms to XXL that Amy Winehouse's classic song is about him... Rumor has it that Winehouse once had a crush on Nas, but interpretations on the song vary. "Mr. Destiny, 9 and 14," Winehouse sings, referencing Nas's daughter, Destiny, and the September 14 birth date she shared with the rapper. "Nobody stands between me and my man/'Cause it's me and Mr. Jones." (XXL Mag)

Months prior, Nas reflected on Winehouse and his close relationship to her.

"She was a genuine person," Nas said referring to Winehouse. "She was like, real. When you talked to her, she was real. 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. You know what I mean? I wish she was here today, man. God bless her soul." ("106 & Park")
