Glasper’s last studio album was 2019’s ‘Fuck Yo Feelings’. In 2020, he teamed up with Terrace Martin, Kamasi Washington and 9th Wonder to form the supergroup Dinner Party, releasing their self-titled LP that same year.


Nearly two years in the making, Martin – who is best known for working with Kendrick Lamar – rented out Chalice Studios in Los Angeles at the end of 2019, and the four musicians got to work on the project. Martin and Washington handled sax duties, with Glasper on keys, and 9th Wonder lacing the production.
