Some sad news to pass along on this Christmas Eve morning, as Pro Era emcee Capital Steez has passed away at the young age of 19. There has been no cause of death officially determined, but speculation is that he took his own life, with a chilling "The End." being his last tweet. Joey Bada$$ tweeted this, confirming Capital's death:
This unfortunate xmas eve.. Lost a best friend, a brother, a pro, a partner. Letting go is never easy.. May ur soul rest in peace Jamal.. RIP CAPITAL STEEZ!!! 7.7.93 – 12.24.12. SICK TO MY STOMACH… it just haven’t been the same since my homies death…. MOST PRAISE TO THE MOST HIIGHHHHHHHHHHHH. part of me still doesn’t believe this.
This comes off the heels of Pro Era's new project, Peep: The Aprocalypse, this weekend. R.I.P. to a rising Brooklyn artist, Capital Steez.
