Wiz Khalifa was recently with two nominations for the 2012 Grammy Awards, including Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song for “Black and Yellow.” Speaking with Hot 97’s Kay Foxx, the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania native reflected on the honor, stating that he received the news while performing.
“I did not think I was going to get nominated for a Grammy for that song. I was just coming off stage,” he said. “I think I was in Boston and I wasn’t able to go to the nomination ceremony, so I was on stage and they were like you got nominated for two. And I freaked out. It was a cool way to lose my cool. I did a little dance.”
“We were on time for everything, we were there later than we should have been,” he said. “We did everything great, there were no problems. I think it just ushered us and pushed us through and just made the whole work space to be around.”
