After hustling independently since 2007, Mac Miller has signed a record deal with Warner Bros.
A source tells FADER that the deal is worth $10 million.
Miller brings over his independent label, Remember Music, to Warner Bros as well. He’ll be signing and developing artists under his imprint and Warner Bros., and also releasing solo material under Remember Music/Warner Bros.
“Warner is the most independent thinking company I met with,” he told FADER. “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.”
There was something else, important, that drew Mac Miller to Warner Bros: “The have Prince.”
In celebration of the signing, Mac Miller releases a new song, “Just Some Raps, Nothing To See Here, Move Along.” Check it out below.
During his guest appearance on The Juice Podcast in May, Mac Miller spoke on drugs (“I’ve been doing drugs since I was 10-years old”). On the SAP-produced song, though, he spits a positive update: “I put the cocaine away/ I’m drinking coffee a bunch.”
