Westside Gunn has made it perfectly clear where he thinks his album ranks against DaBaby’s Blame It On Baby. On Saturday (April 18), the Griselda Records founder shared a popular meme of a person sitting at an outdoor table and taking a poll on a particular topic.
In this case, the poster features the cover of Westside’s new album Pray For Paris and DaBaby’s cover for his latest project Blame It On Baby. The greater-than-sign is pointing toward Pray For Paris.
The 37-year-old rapper wrote in the caption, “Good Morning #PrayforParis.”

Westside is evidently in better spirits these days. On Sunday (April 12), he revealed he’d recently recovered from a case of the coronavirus and admitted he’d felt like he was going to die at one point.
“I have a confession to Make I’m a Corona Survivor,” he wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post. “I didn’t want anybody feeling sorry for me I had to thug it out for weeks I didn’t get to see my kids I went to the hospital feeling like I was breathing my last breath the fans and the love I was getting kept me strong I knew I had to drop this Pray for Paris bc GOD have bigger plans for me.
“I went on Tidal live and Fat Joe live but soon as I was done I was right back on the breathing machine today is the first time besides the hospital that I’m about to go outside in a month thx to the ppl who did know and held me down now I’m about to go harder than I ever have that shit tore me up inside I literally thought I was dead designing these clothes and @virgilabloh having my back and @djpremier sending me a beat kept me motivated.”
DaBaby’s Blame It On Baby arrived on Friday (April 17) and includes from Future, Megan Thee Stallion, Roddy Ricch, Quavo, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, YoungBoy Never Broke Again and Ashanti.
