Mac Miller has been a poster child for indie success for the entirety of his career, but the Pittsburgh rapper has finally decided that it’s time to make the jump to a major label. Miller confirmed that he has signed his REMember Music imprint to a deal with Warner Bros. Records. The deal is reportedly worth $10 million.

“Warner is the most independent thinking company I met with,” Miller told The FADER. “It is a partnership and now I can focus on building my label Remember through music and let them handle everything I don’t like doing. Nothing will change in how I do things.”

He also added: “They have Prince.”

Since he emerged in 2007, Miller has released music both on his own and via the indie label Rostrum Records, which is based in his hometown of Pittsburgh.. Miller left Rostrum last year after the release of his most recent album, Watching Movies With the Sound Off.

Miller celebrated the new deal with a new song called “Just Some Raps, Nothing To See Here, Move Along.”
