Louisville’s Markie drops off a soulful video for his new single “Repent.” Recently signed to Interscope Records, the new track also marks the 19-year-old rapper’s label debut.

“Repent” pays homage to Markie’s kin on multiple levels. Anchored by a catchy beat and Auto-Tuned hook, the Kentucky-bred newcomer spits bars inspired by his Grandfather’s last words. The accompanying clip takes on a home video-styling and shows Markie wearing a t-shirt with photos of his late family member “Fatdaddy.”

“Lost Fatdaddy when I was 14 years old,” he told RealStreetRadio. “He was one of my little cousins. Life ain’t been same since. Wish he was here to see these blessings, but I know we doing this for him too.”

“Repent” serves as the lead single off Markie’s debut album Right My Wrongs, which is expected to arrive August 23.

“Where I come from is the gutter, it’s the trenches,” he said. “People have their ideas of what life is like in Louisville, so I wanted to use my music to tell them what’s really going on.”
