3 Piece – [Markee Steele]
Markee Steele nets his first Lyrical Lemonade appearance with an impressive music video for his new 3 Piece offering. The North Carolina emcee formerly known as Mark Steele ended his (near) one year silence to reintroduce himself as Markee Steele. Incredibly, Steele’s former stage name was granted by his college professor and mentor 9th Wonder, aka the legendary record producer, executive & DJ. Since the (stage) name change, Markee Steele’s renewed sense of self was strategically accompanied by the announcement of his launched label Marquee Recordings. Shortly afterward, Steele released a new visual in the form of 3 Piece – a bundled package containing three new songs titled “Cruise Control,” “Slide,” and “Love.” Accompanied by a self-directed visual, each record sounds completely different from the other, yet Steele finds a way to seamlessly transition each track. “Slide” is my favorite ‘piece’ of the three, which includes heavy-hitting drum chops on the head-bobbing production. Steele has essentially discovered his formula for creating a lowkey banger, a late-night drive anthem, and a rapid romance with a bold but successful merge attempt. Check out 3 Piece below!
