Mac Miller already had grand plans in 2014, proposing that he already had four albums he wanted to release in the calendar year. Now, he’s officially a free agent after his deal with indie label Rostrum Records has expired, according to MTV News. The ending of the deal shows that there’s no ill will between both parties as Mac still considers the label which released his proper debut album, 2011’s Blue Slide Park and last year’s Watching Movies With The Sound Off “family”.

“Rostrum is my family. That is forever,” Miller said in an exclusive joint statement issued to MTV News on Tuesday (January 14). “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.”

“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 already proven himself as a chart staple, crossing over last year by featuring on Ariana Grande’s top 10 hit “The Way” and becoming the first independent artist since Tha Dogg Pound in 1995 to debut at #1. Heading to a major will ultimately derail all of those plans of releasing four albums in a single year but outside of T.I., there may not be a hotter free agent in rap.
