Nas was recently on BET's "106 & Park" where he answered questions on many topics including Dr Dre's "Detox" album and the late singer Amy Winehouse. Nas credited Amy Winehouse's realness as a key characteristic to her make up.
"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")
