BREAKING: Mac Miller Leaves Rostrum Records
On July 21st 2010 we reported that little known Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller had signed to Rostrum Records, the indie hometown label home to fellow Burgh rapper Wiz Khalifa.
Shortly after singing to the label, Miller released his critically acclaimed mixtape K.I.D.S. which launched his career directly into the mainstream. After releasing a handful of mix tapes and two albums with Rostrum over the years, tonight both parties have announced the end of their partnership on MTV.com with the below statement.
"Rostrum is my family. That is forever," Miller said in an exclusive joint statement issued to MTV News on Tuesday (January 14). "No matter what, we will always work together. We moved mountains and I can only see them continuing that tradition. I am grateful for everything I learned and am always here for whatever. Mac is an incredible artist and has a bright career ahead of him," Rostrum Records Founder and President Benjy Grinberg said. "We are proud of the historic run that we had together and we will continue to support him in any way that is needed. We wish him nothing but the best in the future."
Miller will now focus on his already launched record label/ management company REMember Music, which features a roster of artists including The Come Up Boys, Choo Jackson, Dylan Reynolds, and more.
