9:10: Kickin’ it wit Baby right now. Him, Glasses Malone and Slim. They’re just here for Drake … Then out.
9:20: Ran into Nicki in the hallway. Her and the crew. She said waddup. Queens in the building!
9:25: Just spotted will.i.am in all black everything. As I’m looking Rick Ross walks by, Gucci Pucci, Spiff and the whole team. Everybody shows love.

10:00: Trey Songz’ manager Kevin Liles just walked by a few mins ago sans Trigga. Whatever was going on, homey looked real focused.
