I could do without all the Nas, though he’s probably one of the best rappers in the game today (which isn’t saying a whole lot anyway, when you have people like TYGA or whatever out there)
From the Huff Po:
Nas’ collaboration with the late Amy Winehouse has finally surfaced. The track, “Cherry Wine,” premiered on BBC’s Radio 1 on Tuesday night.
Produced by Salaam Remi, “Cherry Wine” will appear on the rapper’s tenth studio album, Life is Good, which is slated for a July 17th release. Nas and Winehouse previously collaborated on “Like Smoke,” which appeared on Winehouse’s posthumous album Lioness: Hidden Treasures.
I don’t know, guys. I love Amy and I miss her and there’s still a big old empty spot in my heart where a live, thriving Amy would normally fit (if she were, you know, still live and thriving), and I still have to say it—maybe if girl had laid off the ‘smoke’ and ‘wine’ a little bit more and focused on cranking out beautiful music like she used to be so good at doing, she might be here with us today, celebrating ‘Cherry Wine’ in July of 2012.
As it were, she’s not, and we only have things like ‘smoke’ and like ‘wine’ to blame. And, you know, the obvious addiction to both.
RIP Amy. Good to see that your music is still living on though you’re not.

“I would slap the s*** out of somebody for Gwyneth Paltrow. She’s the homie, she’s cool. Gwyneth gets a pass. Real people get a pass. We know what this s*** is. We don’t interrupt Italians when they say ‘Wop’ to each other. They gonna punch you in the mouth if you interrupt that. Don’t interrupt us. We pick and choose. … Some might not feel the same way. Some of us will get angrier about it than others; but some people get a pass. The people that I know who are cool and real n****s, Gwyneth Paltrow is a real n****, that’s my homie. That’s how I’m on it. Some people get a pass.”
So is that how this all is? Because I’m afraid I just don’t get it. Here’s a quick suggestion: how about we ALL stop saying the offending word (people of all races), and be done with it? Then no one feels insulted, excluded, faked out, shit on, oppressed, or revered. Will that work for everyone?
Whatever. Nas is a pretentious idiot anyway.

Oh, damn. Look at this friendship.
Nas and Amy Winehouse were photographed leaving a Japanese restaurant in London last night. I wonder what their conversation was all about. I be he was like, “Imagine smoking weed in the streets without cops harassing/Imagine going to court with no trial/Lifestyle cruising blue behind my waters/No welfare supporters more conscious of the way we raise our daughters” and she was all, “BLLLAAAAAAAKKKKKEEEEEEE.” I bet it was something like that. I hope they’re working together.

‘Cause as far as I’m concerned, the two look a little more alike than can even be biologically possible, minus the facial hair, natch.
Kelis, if you’re unfamiliar with her, hit the hip hop/R&B music genre in 2003 with her ear-catching, annoying-ass single “Milkshake”. She had the typical rise-to-fame scenario; married Nas in 2005, both divorced Nas in 2009 and became his baby mama, and sucked Nas dry via child support just in the past few months.
Kelis releases her latest album, FleshTones, on May 1st and her newest single, “Acapella” has just dropped.
What do you guys think of the new single? Myself, I dunno … It’s kinda 90s dance meets Sade meets … well, Kanye, at least in the looks department, anyway. I don’t think I’ll be hurrying on out April 30th at midnight to reserve my copy or anything.
Depending on where you work, the below video is probably NSFW.

“I think Jesse Jackson, he’s the biggest player hater. His time is up. All you old niggas, time is up. We heard your voice, we saw your marching, we heard your sermons. We don’t wanna hear that shit no more. It’s a new day. It’s a new voice. I’m here now. We don’t need Jesse; I’m here. I got this. We got Barack, we got David Banners and Young Jeezys. We’re the voice now. It’s no more Jesse. Sorry. Goodbye. You ain’t helping nobody in the ‘hood. That’s the bottom line. Goodbye, Jesse. Bye!”
