Mark Steele is a solo rap artist from Durham, NC. Currently residing in New York City, his sound imbues a gritty, fervid sound that has been long lost since the late 90’s, early 2000’s. Bred into the culture since the tender age of 15, he has already worked with some of the industry’s best. Topping the list includes his mentor and former college professor, super producer 9th Wonder, and YMCMB artist Cory Gunz. Formerly of the NC based rap duo Mic&Rep, well respected publications such as The Source Magazine’s “Unsigned Hype” have highlighted Steele’s potential, as well as a slew of the top online blog sites.
As Mark prepares to go full steam into the run leading up to the release of his forthcoming mixtape, Empty Auditorium, (which will be released on 11-12-2013 and features an appearance from Rapsody) his ascension up the Hip-Hop ladder becomes more apparent with every verse, as he is determined to take his place with the elite artists of his generation.
