Rap-Up TV: Nas Talks Frank Ocean, Remembers Amy Winehouse

With just days to go before his 10th album Life Is Good arrives in stores, Nas caught up with Rap-Up TV at the ESPYS to discuss collaborating with his late friend Amy Winehouse on “Cherry Wine.”

“Amy was just one of a kind. We just clicked like that. May she rest in peace,” said the hip-hop icon. “She’s watching us, she’s holding me down and I’m holding her down here. It’s just love forever.”

He also had a message for those jumping on the Frank Ocean bandwagon following the singer’s revelation about his sexuality. “Everybody’s getting excited about records for the wrong reason,” said Nas, who collaborated with the Odd Future member on the lost song “No Such Thing as White Jesus.” “Listen to the music. The music is number one.”
