Hip-Hop Junkies: Amy Winehouse

Amy Linden, XXL, June 2007

23-YEAR-OLD UK soul/jazz chanteuse Amy Winehouse has taken music by storm with her American debut Back To Black. Already huge overseas, Amy first got US love via Ghostface's remix of her 'You Know I'm No Good' and a blend of girl group sonics and bad girl attitude has made her a critical, fan and tabloid favorite. XXL spoke to the sweet soul mama about heckling idols and loving old school.
