Mark Steele Teases New Album With ‘Before A Minute’ Mixtape

On the road to his much anticipated new album, North Carolina emcee Mark Steele drops off another surprise treat to hold fans over in the form of a brand new mixtape, Before A Minute, premiered today (8/30/2018) by HipHopDX. Hosted by DJ Wade BannerBefore A Minute is Mark Steele‘s quick, 12 minute appetizer that serves as a prelude to his forthcoming album It’s Been A Minute (due out October 12). Arriving on the heels of the release of Steele’s “Surprise” music video, the mixtape boasts new razor sharp freestyles of Steele’s over current hits like Khalid‘s “Location,” and hip hop classics such as Outkast‘s “Elevators,” Jay-Z‘s “Imaginary Player,” and more.

[It’s Been A Minute] deserved a warm-up, a pre-game, an opening act, so I made sure I gave it all bars. And DJ Wade Banner gave it that true authentic mixtape feel, with real blends and cuts. Plus, we both talking that talk. It’s impossible to not be excited about the album after running this mixtape back!” – Steele
