Wiz Khalifa helped open the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards with some help from his friends Young Jeezy and Juicy J.

The Taylor Gang leader opened the show with his Benny Blanco-produced hit “Work Hard, Play Hard,” rapping while perched at a mic stand adorned with scarves. He then ripped into the remix, bringing out Young Jeezy and his Taylor Gang signee Juicy J to rap their verses on the cut.

The Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania rapper is currently prepping the release of his upcoming sophomore album O.N.I.F.C., releasing December 4th. Watch Wiz’s performance below.
