Pray For ParisÂ marks Gunnâ€™s first collaboration with DJ Premier with additional production from Tyler, the Creator, Alchemist, Daringer, DJ Muggs, Jay Versace and more.Â 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 Gunnâ€™s first time out of the country he felt inspired by the city to create the album.Â
Pray For Paris is an amalgamation of Griseldaâ€™s grimy production/new school boom bap style with new collaborators creating Gunnâ€™s biggest and most compelling project to date.
