History[edit]

Rostrum began in 2003 while founder Benjy Grinberg was working at Arista Records. Grinberg wanted to be able to develop his own artists and run a label his own way, so he took the lessons he learned from Arista and applied them to a more homegrown situation. When asked his original motivations behind setting up Rostrum Records, Grinberg said ‘music executives need to be patient with artists and let them develop over time, and so our focus with Rostrum is artist development — finding artists early, and then putting a lot of time and effort into developing the artist across the board, from their shows to their music, their songwriting, their style…everything.’[4] Grinberg first heard about Wiz Khalifa in 2004 when the rapper’s contribution to a mixtape of various new Pittsburgh artists attracted his interest. When Grinberg finally met the 16-year-old artist, he immediately decided he wanted to work with him, later telling HitQuarters: ‘Even though he wasn’t all the way developed you could just tell that he was a diamond in the rough, and that with some polishing, guidance and backing he could become something special.’ Khalifa signed to the label shortly after and began a seven-year period of artist development.[4]

Mainstream success for Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller[edit]

With both Wiz Khalifa’s and Mac Miller’s careers on the rise, Rostrum Records was able to reach new heights in 2011. Wiz Khalifa’s single ‘Black and Yellow’ climbed the charts for 18 months before reaching #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 on in February 2011, becoming his first #1 single. Some of the song’s success can be attributed to the Pittsburgh Steelers making it to the Super Bowl. “Black and Yellow” became the team’s anthem since the song is an ode to the city of Pittsburgh’s black and yellow colors.[9]Mac Miller released the mixtape Best Day Ever on March 11, 2011. Since the release, it has been downloaded over 1,137,000 times and streamed over 1,155,000 times from the official host of the mixtape, DatPiff.com.[10] The first single off Best Day Ever, ‘Donald Trump’ charted on the US Billboard Hot 100 debuting at number 80. While online, free as a part of Best Day Ever, ‘Donald Trump’ was still purchased over a million times. In March 2013, ‘Donald Trump’ was awarded a Platinum certification by the RIAA, Mac Miller’s first platinum record.[11] On March 29, 2011, Rostrum released Rolling Papers, Wiz Khalifa’s major label debut, through a partnership with Atlantic Records. The album capitalized on the success of ‘Black and Yellow’ with subsequent platinum singles ‘Roll Up’, ‘No Sleep’, and ‘When I’m Gone’. Rolling Papers was awarded a Platinum certification in June 2011.[12] Rostrum released Mac Miller’s debut studio album Blue Slide Park on November 8, 2011, only eight months after the release of ‘Best Day Ever’. Rostrum Records sold 145,000 copies of Blue Slide Park in its first week, becoming the first independently-distributed debut album by an artist to hit №1 since 1995.[13]

Departure of Mac Miller; Signing of Mod Sun & The Bird and the Bee[edit]

On January 14, 2014 Mac Miller and Rostrum Records parted ways, as his original deal with the label had ended.[17] Rostrum released Wiz Khalifa’s third album ‘Blacc Hollywood’ on August 19, 2014, with the lead single ‘We Dem Boyz’. The album was a critical success, debuting at number one on the Billboard 200, with first-week sales of 90,453 copies in the United States, making it his first album to take the top spot in its first week.[18] With the departure of Mac Miller, and Wiz Khalifa in a joint deal with Atlantic, Rostrum moved into a new phase of operations to expand their roster. In 2014 and 2015 respectively, Rostrum announced the signing of Minnesota rapper Mod Sun and LA indie-pop duo The Bird and the Bee.[19] Rostrum Records released Mod Sun’s debut studio album, Look Up on March 10, 2015 and The Bird and the Bee’s first album of original material since 2009 entitled ‘Recreational Love’ on July 17, 2015.[20][21]

‘See You Again’; Signing of Goodbye Tomorrow[edit]

Wiz Khalifa co-wrote and performed ‘See You Again (feat. Charlie Puth)’ for the soundtrack of the 2015 action film Furious 7 as a tribute to the late Paul Walker. ‘See You Again’ was an enormous global commercial success, becoming Khalifa’s biggest hit to date. It peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for 12 non-consecutive weeks, tying Eminem’s ‘Lose Yourself’ for the longest-running rap number-one hit in the country.[22] Later in 2015, Rostrum Records signed Goodbye Tomorrow, an anonymous hip hop collective from Chicago, IL. Rostrum was introduced to the group by producer E.Dan, who has worked closely with Rostrum Records and their roster. E.Dan is a producer and mixer for ID Labs, a Pittsburgh-based recording studio and production team. On August 14, 2015, Rostrum Records released ‘A Journey Through the Mind of a Non Believer’, Goodbye Tomorrow’s debut album. E.Dan served as a ‘musical advisor’ for Goodbye Tomrrow, who helped them with the final phase of mixing and by ‘touching up a few things here and there’.[23] On October 7, 2015, the video for Wiz Khalifa’s ‘See You Again’ reached over a billion views on YouTube, making it the very first hip-hop song to do so. ‘See You Again’ was nominated for three Grammy Awards at the 58th ceremony: Song of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Song Written for Visual Media. As of February 2016, the video for ‘See You Again’ had received over 1.48 billion views, the most viewed video by a rapper ever.[24]

Best Day Ever 5th anniversary re-issue; Wiz Khalifa lawsuit[edit]

On May 31, 2016, Wiz Khalifa filed a $1 million lawsuit against Rostrum Records Founder Benjy Grinberg, alleging that the parties had profited from ‘virtually every aspect’ of his professional life through a 360 deal signed in 2005 when he was a teenager. Khalifa’s suit alleged that Grinberg and Rostrum entered into deals with Warner Bros. Records and Atlantic Records for his recordings. Grinberg and Rostrum followed with their own lawsuit a month later, seeking ‘millions of dollars in unpaid’ royalties and earnings from touring and merchandising. Grinberg said his former client’s allegations were the ‘complete opposite of our actions and the antithesis of what Rostrum Records and I stand for.’ [25]
