It was a black-and-gold affair as Wiz Khalifa celebrated his career achievements. The Pittsburgh rapper was presented with a gold plaque for selling 500,000 copies of his major label debut Rolling Papers. Atlantic Records executives toasted the Best New Artist VMA nominee, who marked the occasion with his team including longtime manager Benjy Grinberg.
In addition, his singles “Black and Yellow” and “Roll Up” were certified platinum. “These Platinum Plaques Got me Thankful For Every Positive Person In My Life,” tweeted a humbled Wiz, who is currently on tour with Big Sean.
