Aside from the emergence of the New West, Mac Miller has been the biggest independent artist in the game. Currently, the Pittsburgh rapper is preparing for the release of his debut album. Titled Blue Slide Park, it is named after a local hangout from Mac’s childhood.
Because of his buzz, Mac Miller is known all over the world and everyone wants to work with him. Mac Miller revealed all the major labels want to sign him. Despite this, he has decided to remain an independent artist.
Mac Miller is signed to local label, Rostrum Records, the same label which Wiz Khalifa is signed to. Speaking on major labels, Mac Miller said they can bring an artist certain things. But, he would rather see what he and his team can first do without any help.
Because of the technological advances, Mac Miller said anyone could have the success he has had over the past few years. Mac Miller said he was glad he could inspire this type of movement and he hopes more children realize they can reach their dreams through YouTube and other social media outlets. While he remains independent, Atlantic Records has been rumored to want to sign Mac Miller.
