In recent months, rapper Nas has quietly become one of New York City’s premier celebrity diners. Beyond being an investor in chicken and waffles chain Sweet Chick, he just can’t stop, won’t stop eating at one hot spot after the next.

His latest stop is at the newly opened second location of Sushi by Bou, the 30-minute, 12-piece $50 omakase inside the Sanctuary Hotel from chef-owner David Bouhadana. In theory, the idea is to go on a quick nigiri tour in order to free up the seat for the next diner.

But not Nas. Instead, after finishing his first round of 12 pieces, the NYC-bred musician signed up for round two and downed another dozen pieces of fish in quick succession. According to the Daily News, he washed it all down with a bottle of Dassai sake and concluded with a $200 tip.

It’s not clear if Nas knew about the recent controversy surrounding Bouhadana, in which Eater called out the chef for using a fake Japanese accent during service.
