Esco appeared on 106 & Park yesterday evening and talked to Rocsi on his guest spot at OVO Fest, Amy Winehouse, working with Dre and more. When it came down to speak on the late singer, Nas kept it short and sincere.

“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.”
