The turn to a career in music came by a faithful meeting at church in 2001 with a young songwriter/producer named Malcolm Horne
who saw Stee as someone who could bring his productions to life. With no plans on ever becoming a recording artist, this encounter sparked the idea that there could be success in the music business for the both of them.
With Stee's debut single "Good Man" released in 2008, the song gained major recognition when a curator on Youtube took a liking to the song and posted it on Youtube's front page jump starting Stee's independent music career. From this jump start came Stee sharing the stage with major heavyweights like Monica
, Marques Houston
, & OutKast
's Big Boi
as well as working with Big Boi's Big Kidz Foundation.
