Multiple albums? Major record deals? Years in the rap game? Apparently, none of these feats matter much to MTV.
The smoked out rapper from Pittsburgh who has accomplished more than any newbie artist doesn't mind though. Wiz Khalifa is just happy to nominated at all. Watch him break down his 'Best New Artist Nomination' with Hot97's Miss Info backstage at the 2011 MTV VMA awards.
Bonus: Wiz pays tribute to Snoop Dogg at 2011 BMI Awards
