Wiz Khalifa kicked of the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards with a performance of 'Work Hard, Play Hard.' Dressed in all black with a motorcycle jacket and matching fedora, Wizzy got the crowd hype for his anthemic song.

Joining the Pittsburgh rapper was fellow Atlanta rhyme-slinger Young Jeezy who came through to perform his verse on the all-star remix. But the audience went bonkers when Juicy J came out to perform a verse from his current chart-topping hit 'Bandz a Make Her Dance.'

Overall, it was a perfect start of show to get everybody excited for the night. Although he was only nominated for one award (Best Mixtape), Wiz's performance made a big impression on the crowd as if he won the top award of the night.

And don't forget, Wiz Khalifa's second album 'O.N.I.F.C' will arrive in stores Dec. 4.
