Mac Miller Signed A Major Label Deal So He Could Exist Beyond The Internet

Eyes on a bigger prize.

After pushing two successful albums on the indie circuit, Mac Miller surprised us by leaving longtime label Rostrum Records in January and signing a major label deal with Warner Bros. Records in October.

The Pittsburg rapper clearly thought it through before he made the big move, and in a new interview with The Fader, he explains exactly why he took a new route.

"It's just time to take the next step. Doing it on an indie label and taking it as far as we did is amazing, but it just makes sense for where I’m at right now and where I can possibly go," he said.

"I would like to see what it’s like to have those resources and have that reach. I don’t want to solely exist on the Internet — not that I do, but there’s a whole world out there of things to do that’s not Twitter, that’s not Instagram to get the record out."

It's true, there is life beyond the Internet, believe it or not.

Oh, and he's definitely been working on his next album, and looking forward to hitting the road again. Stay tuned.
