Wednesday, September 30 I stopped at the gym before my photo shoot for the album.I had a Kiss of Life after and then went downtown to the shoot.The LOX are currently shopping for their next contract as well.The new deal will still involve The Ruff Ryders, the label and management associated with The LOX dating back to their earliest days.
“It’s just getting to that time that it’s now or never,” he says.
On my way to the fitting with the stylist I grabbed some lunch at Eataly. A bit overwhelming, but they have a little bit of everything.
I picked up a sandwich with mozzarella, tomato, basil, and balsamic. Every time something happened at Def Jam, a first good week, or any type of good news, everybody was like “Let’s go to Philippe’s!

Tuesday, September 29 Gym and breakfast ritual started a little bit late today. That’s the main thing with a restaurant — you need to know your food is prepared with love. We just ordered a bunch of other stuff, some shrimp, salad, asparagus, fries, and a little midday wine, just because.

When I was still eating chicken, I used to get the Beijing chicken. Then went into Manhattan to have a late lunch at the Redeye Grill. These days I’m out in the world investigating salmon. Tuesday night I actually skipped dinner by accident because we had such a late lunch.
I put out an APB on the good salmon, and this is what came back. I was in the studio late working on the album, putting the finishing trimmings on the tree, and then just passed out.
