Wiz Khalifa has gotten so big over the last year, landing on many publications’ year-end lists, that his upcoming debut, Rolling Papers, is looking like its one of the most anticipated this year.
As the March 29th release date nears, the Pittsburgh rapper lands one of his biggest magazine covers to date — Rolling Stone.
The mag is dubbed Wiz “Hip-Hop’s Rookie Of The Year.” And this is all from a kid who raps, a lot, about his love for weed.
The Source gave the rapper the same honor back in November.
MTV also gave Wiz big honors this year too, naming him an “11 for ’11” celeb to watch in January, along with Kardashian and “Jersey Shore” star, Deena Cortese.
Wiz will share the mag’s cover with “Jersey Shore” starlet Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi for the issue, dubbed the “Hot List” special, which arrives on newsstands Friday (March 4).
