Nas Says Winehouse Song Was For Him

Fans have speculated for years that Amy Winehouse's 2007 track, "Me & Mr. Jones" was a love letter to Queens rapper Nas. Now, three months after Winehouse's passing, Nasty Nas is confirming that the song was a special dedication to him from the soul singer.

"I don't really remember if [producer] Salaam [Remi], who was really close to her, who introduced us, if he told me about it or not," Nas told XXL. "I don't remember right now. But, I heard a lot about it before I even heard the song."

Nas and Amy would go on to become close friends. He's spoken at length about their friendship since she died earlier this year.
