Mac Miller Is No Longer An Indie Rapper, Signs A $10 Million Record Deal

We all remember the classic Mac Miller mixtapes like Best Day Ever and Kids that launched his career. Today, Mac Miller announced being signed to Warner Bros reportedly for $10 Million. The Pittsburgh artist had previously been signed to Wiz Khalifa’s Rostrum Records where he released two albums, Blue Slide Park and Watching Movies With The Sound Off. An indie rapper when his contract ended, in 2013, Mac Miller created his own Remember Music imprint along with his manager/business partner Quentin Cuff to produce and do his own thing musically as well as promote emerging musicians. Officially signed now, Mac Miller’s flexibility and creative control over his own music and his current Remember music artists, Njomza and Choo Jackson, remains only to be enhanced with major label backing.

“Warner is the most independent thinking company I met with,” Miller told The FADER in an email. “It is a partnership and now I can focus on building my label Remember through music and let them handle everything I don’t like doing. Nothing will change in how I do things.” He added: “They have Prince.”

To celebrate the new deal, Mac Miller let go this new track called “Just Some Raps, Nothing To See Here, Move Along.” It’s produced by SAP:
