Winehouse sadly passed away suddenly in 2011 at 27, but Game is hoping to one day get a sample.
To continue promoting his record, the Los Angeles icon teamed up with Drillmatic‘s executive producer Hit-Boy for a sit-down with Billboard. During the chat, Game gave a surprising answer to who his dream collaboration is.
He’s worked with some of the greatest in the industry, so the question was seemingly poised as who he would want to work with that he has yet to.
“Mine easy. Mine’s always gonna be Amy Winehouse,” said Game as the others agreed. “She’s hard as f*ck. Her voice, man… Her voice and my voice over some jazz music would be on some other sh*t.” He added, “We probably gotta sample some Amy or something and put it over some trombones or something and go crazy!”
Winehouse was tragically found dead in her home in July 2011 and later, her cause of death was ruled accidental alcohol poisoning. The singer’s posthumous talents don’t appear in songs or albums the way other artists have been memorialized, so it will be interesting to see if The Game can pull this one off.
