Markee Steele Drops ‘Sophomore Slump’ Album + “Step” Video feat. Traffic

Markee Steele releases his new album ‘Sophomore Slump’ plus shares the official music video for his new single, “Step”, featuring Traffic.

Durham, North Carolina native Markee Steele, best known for his ESPN Sports Center anthem “Greatness”, first broke his silent streak last month with the announcement of his new album ‘Sophomore Slump’.

Steele gifted fans the new album on Christmas day (12.25.2023), ahead of its official release date, via an exclusive WeTransfer link, where the project could be purchased.

The album has since been released to all major digital streaming platforms via the emcee’s R.O.S.E. imprint, accompanied by the self-directed, shot, and edited music video for the album’s second single “Step” featuring Traffic.

“‘Step’, ‘steppers’ or ‘stepping’ is a street term. I wanted to broaden the meaning so it can apply to more than just one category of individuals. I thought it was important since I grow up in the inner city of Durham, NC so I’m comfortable in those environments. However music has developed me the skills and the maturity necessary to communicate, with the others who may look down on folks from the ghetto. Stepping is a term everyone can use. Whether you’re a doctor teacher or protecting the community, if you’re great at what you do, you’re stepping. I hope this perspective will help us bridge the gap. We’re all more alike than we realize.” –Markee Steele
