New York’s own Nas paid a visit to “106 & Park” to promote his new single “Nasty.” During his conversation with host Rocsi Diaz, the rap icon remembered his late friend Amy Winehouse and spoke of reuniting with Dr. Dre.

“She was a genuine person. She was like real,” recalled Nas of the soul songstress, whose song “Me & Mr. Jones” was reportedly written about Nas. “She was struggling with a lot of things in her life, but she was a real artist. She was like a little sister to me. 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 talked briefly about Dr. Dre’s elusive album Detox. “Dre is the king of the gangsta music. I just did something for his new album Detox, so I’m waiting for it,” he revealed. “We got a nice record.”
