No longer just a Buffalo Kid but someone who is connecting the dots globally. Fresh off fighting and beating COVID-19 as he shared via an Instagram post (which is now a deleted post) he wasted no time and this past Friday Westside Gun dropped his latest album Prayers For Paris.
This album is filled with of our #BuffaloKids Benny The Butcher, Conway, Billie Essco, Keisha Plum and collaborations with Freddie Gibbs, Wale, Joey Bada$$ and more.
Every Friday I get excited when new music drops and I sit Indian style like a kid with a new toy as I listen through the entire album. After listening to the album my three favorite songs are the following:
1. George Bondo: Westside Gunn, Conway, Benny The Butcher
When the three of these Buffalo Kids come together on any record it’s a guaranteed hit. All three artist bring their special sauce making the ultimate juice. I’ll add Allah Sent Me to this list too
2. French Toast: Westside Gunn, Wale & Joyce Wrice
“You don’t even speak English I can tell that you mean it. You can put your legs up, you can choke me while I eat it”
Yall, I will never eat french toast the same. This album was inspired and created while in Paris and I love the picture West painted for us. The melody mixed with the vocals of Joyce Wrice, in addition, the collaboration with Wale was the cherry on top which make me want to go to Paris to eat French Toast
3. 327: Westside Gunn, Joey Bada$$, Tyler, The Creator & Billie Essco
The moment this track played it was an entire vibe produced by Camo Monk. The collaborations of Tyler The Creator and Joey Bada$$ was unexpected yet refreshing. My highlight of this track was hearing Buffalos own Billie Essco.
Overall, another solid project. I wouldn’t expect nothing different. If you have yet to check out this album I suggest you do and let me know your favorite tracks.
