Westside Gunn’s Pray For Paris: A Stellar Lineup and International Inspiration
Pray For Paris, the latest album from Westside Gunn, brings together an impressive roster of talent. Collaborating with Griselda artists Conway The Machine and Benny The Butcher, as well as Grammy-winner Tyler, the Creator, Wale, Joey Bada$, Freddie Gibbs, Roc Marciano, Boldy James, Billie Essco, Joyce Wrice, Keisha Plum, and Cartier A Williams, Gunn creates a musical masterpiece. Notably, this album also marks Gunn’s first collaboration with DJ Premier, while also featuring production from Tyler, the Creator, Alchemist, Daringer, DJ Muggs, Jay Versace, and more.
The recording of Pray For Paris is a testament to Gunn’s creative process. Completed in just two days during his visit to Paris for the Off-White fashion show, the album was an unexpected endeavor. It was the first time Gunn had ventured outside his home country, and the vibrant energy of the city became a wellspring of inspiration. Virgil Abloh’s invitation and the aesthetic allure of Paris came together to ignite Gunn’s creative vision, resulting in this remarkable album.
Pray For Paris encapsulates Westside Gunn’s artistry, showcasing his ability to bring together a diverse range of talents while drawing inspiration from his surroundings. It is a testament to his passion for music and his unwavering dedication to his craft.
Pray For Paris is an amalgamation of Griselda’s grimy production/new school boom bap style with new collaborators creating Gunn’s biggest and most compelling project to date.
Today, Rolling Stone published an in-depth Q&A with Gunn and also premiered the first visual(s) from Pray For Paris with the dual video for “Euro Step/No Vacancy.”
