During a promotional stop on 106 & Park to promote his new track “Nasty,” rapper Nas opened up about his relationship with late UK singer Amy Winehouse.

“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 told show host, Rocsi.

The Illmatic rapper also gave a small hint as to what his work with Dr. Dre on his Detox album sounds like. Without giving away much of anything at all, he said it’s “a nice record.” (And we can’t wait to hear it!)
