Only two years into a contract rumored to be worth seven figures from Warner Brothers Records, newcomer Wiz Khalifa has gone splits-ville.
He announced this afternoon that he left the powerhouse label, and will maintain his independence. It is reported that he will stay with Rostrum Records.
Rostrum Records’ President Benjy Grinberg, says, “We feel that this ‘divorce’ is the best thing for both parties at this juncture and we appreciate the leniency Warner has shown with our release. We are excited to be independent again.”
Khalifa added, “I’d like to thank Warner Bros. for understanding our reasons for wanting to leave. I learned a lot during my time there and matured as an artist during the process.
I’m happy to be moving on with all of my material and having the chance to be in control of my next moves.”
While at the label, Wiz released the popular single and subsequent video the the Alice DJ-inspired ‘Say Yeah.‘
