North Carolina-based emcee Markee Steele recently changed his name. Formerly known as Mark Steele, a moniker given to him by super-producer 9th Wonder, Steele felt the need to change the course of his career this year. The ESPN-featured indie artist, formerly known as Mark Steele, started with a new stage name, then created a new label, Thee Marquee Recordings.

And he’s released a full-length album, “Time Heals,” and a new three-track project with a self-directed music video, “3 Piece,” which he likens to a reimagining of Leonardo da Vinci’s “Last Supper.” Host Anita Rao talks to Steele about arriving at a new stage of his life as an artist.
