Mac Miller Leaves Rostrum Records


Mac Miller today announced he’s leaving Rostrum Records, the independent record label that signed him out of Pittsburgh and was the machine behind his No. 1-debuting Blue Slide Park in 2011 and his most recent album, Watching Movies With The Sound Offlast summer. MTV is reporting that Mac’s contract with Rostrum has expired, and the two are parting ways.

“Rostrum is my family. That is forever,” Mac said in a statement to MTV. “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.”

Rostrum is still the label behind Wiz Khalifa, who is gearing up to release his next album, Blacc Hollywood, this year. The label also boasts Vali, Boaz and Leon Thomas. Rostrum was the first label since 1995 to place an independent album atop the Billboard 200 with Blue Slide Park. Mac’s followup debuted at No. 3, a ranking influenced by the fact that it was released the same day as Kanye West’s Yeezus and J. Cole’s Born Sinner.

“Mac is an incredible artist and has a bright career ahead of him,” said Rostrum’s chief Benjy Grinberg. “We wish him nothing but the best in the future.”
