October 21, 2014

Mac Miller, the No. 1 seller and FADER cover star, has signed with Warner Bros. The deal, according to a source, is rumored to be worth some $10 million dollars.

Miller has, until now, been unconnected to a major label in 2014, focusing instead on a self-released tape, Faces, and developing artists with his own independent label, Remember Music. At Warner, Miller will keep the Remember imprint, where he'll be able to sign and develop new artists. Upcoming Miller releases, as well as releases from artists he signs, will come through REMember/Warner Bros.

"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, Miller is sharing a new track. "Just Some Raps, Nothing To See Here, Move Along." It's produced by SAP:

Miller started his career in 2007 with a string of free tapes, then signed with Rostrum Records, the independent label founded in Pittsburgh which also launched Wiz Khalifa's career, in 2010.

Remember Music was launched In 2013 by Miller and business partner Quentin Cuff as a training ground for independent-minded upstarts. In January 2014, following the 2013 release of his most recent LP, Watching Movies With The Sound Off, Miller officially parted ways with Rostrum. "Rostrum is my family" Miller told MTV News at the time. "That is forever, I am grateful for everything I learned and am always here for whatever."
