Mac Miller & Rostrum Records Part Ways

Despite the announcement, Mac Miller says Rostrum is his family and the label says Mac is incredible.

Mac Miller has worked with Rostrum Records since the start of his career, but the emcee has decided to part ways from the label that he's been tied to for years. Miller made the announcement via MTV Tuesday (January 14). 

"Rostrum is my family," Miller said. "That is forever. 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 also addressed Miller as the announcement was made. 

"Mac is an incredible artist and has a bright career ahead of him," Rostrum Records Founder and President Benjy Grinberg said. "We are proud of the historic run that we had together and we will continue to support him in any way that is needed. We wish him nothing but the best in the future."

Miller has sold 5.4 million singles and more than 750,000 albums, according to MTV's figures.

In 2013, Miller released Watching Movies With The Sound Off, which was named a runner-up for HipHopDX's "Album of the Year" category in its Year-End Awards. Beyond Watching Movies With The Sound Off, Miller also dropped Live From Space with The Internet and Delusional Thomas last year.

    Mac doesn't need them holding him back he's a mogul now making as much as Rick Ross without selling the fuck out or having a team of slaves making mediocre music under him.

    I'm probably in the minority, but Mac Miller just doesn't do anything for me. At all.

      Same. It's that monotone delivery and terrible flow that just bugs me. He may have improved lyrically, but he's still boring.

    blow away the amicable split smokescreen and this is hella suspect because according to the articles and groupies, the business was the prototype for success, why split up? oh, everybody on the Macklemore "indie" bandwagon? thought Mac is indie already.......

    he doesn't need them he made as much as Officer Ricky last year but he doesn't have to pay for maybachs and security!

      Something smells bad here. Bottom line this had to be the result of a fall out between Mac and Benjy Grinberg. For Mac to move on and not include Rostrum in any way is illmatic to say the least. Whatever happened put this in the loss column for Rostrum Records. Now all they got is Wiz Khalifa who is on a major label and surely not happy after seeing Mac get rich by staying indie. When you get to Mac's level the biggest and finest sharks in the ocean start circling and if you current team ain't tight they will eat you alive.
