Pray For Paris marks Gunn’s first collaboration with DJ Premier with additional production from Tyler, the Creator, Alchemist, Daringer, DJ Muggs, Jay Versace and more. Recorded in just two days in Paris the album was not planned before Virgil Abloh invited Gunn to the country for his Off-White fashion show. Ever the aesthete and it being Gunn’s first time out of the country he felt inspired by the city to create the album.
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.”
