As if the hype surrounding Westside Gunn’s Pray For Paris wasn’t big enough, the Griselda abbot finally released the tracklist — which includes some exciting features.

There are familiar faces (of course), including Conway The Machine, Benny The Butcher and poet Keisha Plum, as well as producers like Muggs, Daringer, Beat Conductor and Alchemist. However, the special sauce may prove to be the left-field features such as Tyler, the Creator (who has a verse and a production credit), Joey Bada$$ and Wale.
Also notable are contributions by Freddie Gibbs and Roc Marciano, as well as WWCD tour opener and rumored Griselda signee, Boldy James.
In true Griselda fashion, though, it’s likely that West has a few surprises up his sleeve. One potential clue is a snippet shared by producer Jay Versace (and retweeted by Gunn) of the song ”Ver$ace.” The clip appears to show that the project is 16 songs — not 12 — in length with a runtime of 38 minutes.

Whether there are four additional songs or simply skits remains to be seen.
