Two music industry heavyweights, with the recent passing of Amy Winehouse, have decided to honor her memory with music. Rap phenom Big Boi and British alternative dance artist M.I.A. have each released music to pay homage to the life of Winehouse. M.I.A. dedicated her unfinished, previously-unrealeased work “27” to Winehouse and all of her friends that had died at the age of 27 in a Twitter post on Saturday. While Big Boi posted his remixed version of “Tears Dry On Their Own” on his official website.

27 by _M_I_A_

Lyrics
said your all mouth and no brains
all rock stars go to heaven
you said you’ll be dead at 27
when we drunk in a English tavern
the owner poured you the Bourbon
and you drunk your self so rotten
he got so rich he bought a Bentley
and moved himself to Devon

you started dirty dancing
and you bar tended a dozen
i took you to the clinic
to get you clean but you couldn’t
said in 2 days ur 27 and and ur destiny was comin
and ur papa passed so sudden
and left you with lil somin

you blew that money on a mountain of drugs
and staged your self a bedin
a month later when i popped in
your still high but the winter set in
i bought you a coffee and a Ruffini
and you quoted me some Lenin
i wished i was that clever
but thats what kept me coming
your friendship did mean somin
but you left me for nothin
when i left, you befriended a rope 
and
i found you both were hanging.
