Wiz Khalifa shot to global stardom with the release of his 2011 project Rolling Papers which arrived with hit singles including “Roll Up” and “Black and Yellow.” The mixtape was certified double platinum and created an unforgettable moment for Wiz.
Monday will mark 10 years since Wiz’s major-label debut which felt like a long-winded win after Khalifa’s hustle through the mixtape and blog circuits, and his independent approach to the game arrived and Wiz is celebrating in a big way that fans will appreciate.
To commemorate the milestone, Wiz has shared the anniversary edition of the project including four tracks, also including an unreleased verse by late hip-hop icon Nipsey Hussle. Wiz and Nip initially worked on the song but when the final edition dropped, his vocals where nowhere to be found, fans can now listen to it below.
The updated version also includes previously unreleased cuts like “Black & Yellow (G-MIx)” featuring Snoop Dogg, Juicy J, and T-Pain); “Stoned”; “Taylor Gang”; and “Middle of You” with Chevy Woods, Nikkiya, and Poo Bear.”
Listen to Nipsey-assisted “Hopes & Dreams” below, and stream the Rolling Papers 10-year anniversary edition on all major platforms.
