Wiz Khalifa kicked off his performance at the 2011 mtvU Woodie Awards spitting lines of his rolling papers-inspired jam "Roll Up" upstairs, surrounded by fans in the upper balcony of the Austin Music Hall. But you knew the Pittsburgh MC wasn't about to let his Woodies debut go down without breaking into his Woodie Of The Year-winning song and official anthem of his beloved Steelers, "Black And Yellow." (And unofficial winner of the MOST ADDICTIVE SONG EVER.)
With the audience bathed in yellow light, waving yellow terrible towels, Wiz Khalifa danced down the set's staircase onto the main stage, like he'd invented the concept of energy expressly for his Woodies performance. He also effectively claimed ownership to the colors black and yellow (if he hadn't already) and convinced us that anyone looking to overthrow the current king of hip-hop has their work cut out for them, because dude is holding court.
