Amy Winehouse 2007 Interview Reveals Dream Rap Collab Partners
"There's so many people I'd love to work with: Nas, Mos Def. I'd love to work with Busta Rhymes, I'd love to work with Rah Digga ... I love them," she said. "I learned a lot of stuff about how to write songs from people like that. I just really like them, and if they like my stuff, cool ... If they want to do a track, I'd love to."
One year later, however, Busta publicly joked that the chanteuse wouldn't return his phone calls. The singer and Nas never recorded music with each other, although they did raise eyebrows when they stepped out in public together last July.
While Jay-Z and Ghostface Killah appeared on remixes of her songs, Winehouse expressed wanting to lay down proper tracks featuring the hip-hop vets. The 27-year-old was reportedly set to team up with Digga her Sucker Free project, but no music has surfaced.
One of her professed dreams did come true, though. Winehouse sang 'Love Is a Losing Game' with Mos Def during a 2007 performance for MTV's ’45th at Night’ series, which the network re-aired on Wednesday, July 27. The special tribute to the soulful singer is currently available to stream on MTV.com.
