7. Rostrum Records
Star Player: Mac Miller
Mac Miller is the king of indie success. His album, Blue Slide Park, still holds weight as the first independently released album to top the Billboard charts in over 15 years. At this rate, Mac has helped Rostrum Records completely change the game when it comes to the music market, and he’s only two studio albums in. All we need to hear now is Pink Slime—his upcoming joint project with Pharrell set for 2014—to officially hand him the crown.
