“Blindfolds” was a triumphant closer to Wiz Khalifa’s classic 2012 mixtape ‘Taylor Allderdice.’
Although he’s only 33 years old, Wiz Khalifa is one among the foremost prolific artists in Hip-Hop. With six official full-length studio albums additionally to a bevy of mixtapes, there’s tons of fabric to sift through when exploring the Pittsburgh artist’s output.
However, some projects, like Kush & fruit juice and Taylor Allderdice, are must-listens for anyone looking to listen to Wiz Khalifa’s classics.
The latter of the 2 aforementioned mixtapes is one among Wiz Khalifa’s most impressive projects following his commercial breakthrough, and this past weekend, fans celebrated Taylor Allderdice’s nine-year anniversary.
Taylor Allderdice was sandwiched between Wiz Khalifa’s major-label debut Rolling Papers and his highly anticipated sophomore album O.N.I.F.C.. Upon its release, fans and critics alike praised the record as a return to make for the “Black and Yellow” artist, and therefore the project featured guest appearances from Chevy Woods, Amber Rose, Rick Ross, Smoke Dza, Juicy J, and Lola Monroe.
Laced with immaculate Harry Fraud production, “Blindfolds” is that the triumphant, yet reserved closer to Taylor Allderdice that finds Wiz Khalifa boasting about how his massive success is obstructing all of the negative energy being aimed toward him. The song features an active guest verse from fellow Taylor Gang artist Juicy J before the track’s wavy hook slides back in and closes out the project.

I’m just riding around on my side of town
Got my windows up and my speakers loud
And we smokin so I’m gonna need a pound
Bet the haters wish they could see me now
But the money in the way
