Today on Vulture Recommends: Amy Winehouse’s Best Hip-Hop Crossovers

Vulture music editor Amos Barshad pays tribute to Amy Winehouse's musical versatility by bringing us five of her best forays into hip-hop. No less than Pharaohe Monch, Jay-Z, and Ghostface Killah all show up on verses, and both Nicki Minaj and Earl Sweatshirt give props in lyric form. We'll stop short of offering any sort of grand statement about her musicality and importance to the industry, and let Vulture pop critic Nitsuh Abebe take it from here.
