“Pray for Paris” is the 25th project from the prolific Westside Gunn. The Griselda crew is on fire right now and Gunn shows how high art, fashion, and hard raps, can perfectly collide to make a great album. There are sonic risks on this album making it cutting edge hip-hop but at the same time has a nostalgiac rap music feel. The album was inspired by Westside Gunn’s experience last year during Fashion Week in Paris which gives the album its euro leaning sample sound. The album is rich with features from Conway the Machine & Benny the Butcher from Griselda as well as Tyler, The Creator, Wale, Freddie Gibbs, Roc Marciano, and Boldy James all with standout rap work on the album.
