It's a good day to be Mac Miller. According to Fader, the 22-year old just signed a rumored ten million dollar deal to bring his independent record label Remember Music to Warner Bros. Records, where it will be one of the behemoth's imprints. Warner will now release Mac Miller's music and the music of the artists Miller brings into the company.
Miller had had a lot of success without a label. His 2011 studio album Blue Slide Park is one of the only indie records to ever debut at number one on the Billboard charts. But Warner apparently made the Pittsburgh native an offer he couldn't refuse.
"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."As if to celebrate his big label largess, Miller also dropped the single 'Just Some Raps, Nothing To See Here, Move Along' today.
Is Miller worth all that green?
