Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller are the superstars of the Rostrum Records stable. Based out of Pittsburgh, the label is currently flush from the success of Miller’s Watching Movies With The Sound Off album. But who’s next to follow in Mac and Wiz’s footsteps?

First up is Vali, the R&B-styled singer who has pitched herself as the “princess of Rostrum Records.” Then there’s multi-instrumentalist Leon Thomas III, who has traded in screen-time on the Nickelodeon show Victorious to ready up his solo album under the tutelage of Babyface. Solidifying the label’s rap roots is Boaz, about whom Mac Miller says, “Growing up in Pittsburgh making music, Boaz is who everybody looked up to. He was and is the best rapper to come out of Pittsburgh.”
