The Diary is the sixth posthumous studio album by American hip hop recording artist J Dilla. The album which was originally intended for release in 2002 via MCA Records under the title "Pay Jay". This long-lost album is the final batch of unissued material that J Dilla had assembled for release during his lifetime. It also represents his first rap album released since Ruff Draft (2003) and Champion Sound (2003). Unlike previous full-length releases – from Jay Stay Paid (2009) to Dillatronic (2015) – all edited with unreleased instrumentals, The Diary is a collection of Dilla's vocal performances over his production and that of other producers, such as Madlib, Pete Rock, Nottz, Hi-Tek and Karriem Riggins among others. The album also features vocal performances by Snoop Dogg, Bilal, Kokane, Frank n Dank, Nottz, Boogie and Kenny Wray. Recording sessions for the album took place from September 16, 2001 to April 2, 2002 at The Spaceship in Clinton Township and Studio A in Detroit, and it was mastered by Dave Cooley at Elysian Masters in Los Angeles.
