Mac Miller Inks A Deal With Warner Bros. For 8 Figures & Drops Off A Loosie (Audio)
After a January, 2014 amicable-but-high profile exit from the Rostrum Records team that helped bring him to stardom, Mac Miller has officially made his next move. The Most Dope front man has headed to Warner Bros. Records, according to The Fader. The report states that the deal, including housing M.M.’s REMember Music imprint, is believed to be worth upwards of $10 million.
This pairs Miller with the label that’s currently home to the likes of Action Bronson, Wale, and Kevin Gates, among others. Warner was also a home to Wiz Khalifa in the late 2000s, through a joint-venture with Rostrum, before Khalifa signed with Atlantic, only to re-join Warner through a later label merger.
With the news, why wouldn’t Mac treat Heads to a track?
“Just Some Raps, Nothing To See Here, Move Along” is a playfully titled record produced by close affiliate and Delaware native SAP (Game, Meek Mill, Tyga) that features Mac’s post-2012 style of stream of consciousness.
After Warner lost the bidding on 50 Cent/G-Unit, and signed-but-never-released Jay Rock, Wiz Khalifa, and others, is this the push they need?
