Capital Steez Reportedly Dead At Age 19, Joey Bada$$ Reacts

Pro Era's Capital Steez is believed to have died in the opening hours of December 24. Joey Bada$$ confirms the death.

News hit Twitter this morning (December 24) that Pro Era member and Brooklyn, New York emcee Capital Steez has allegedly died in the opening hours of the day. Hip Hop/R&B site CloudMusiq.com has reported the death. After Steez, born Jamal Dewar, tweeted "The end." in the opening hours of the morning, his band-mate Joey Bada$$ confirmed the tragic death, which appears to be self-inflicted, with "RIP Capital Steez 7.7.93 - 12.24.2012."

He also tweeted that he "lost a best friend, a brother, a pro, a partner."

 

Late last week, Pro Era released PEEP: The aPROcalypse mixtape. Capital Steez had released his own AmeriKKKan Koruption tape and made appearances on Joey Bada$$'s heralded 1999 mixtape from earlier this year.

HipHopDX would like to extend condolences to the family and friends of Capital Steez and Pro Era.

    Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

      Shut the fuck up and get a life, fucking sheep. Clearly you're too ignorant to move up in the world so you post ridiculous comments accusing successful people of being cult members. They thrive on that shit, it's all an ego thing and a joke. And stop using caps, faggot.

    r.i.p steez. there is no evidence that he killed himself, either this dude has access to potassium nitrate and knows where his axillary vein is or he was killed. there is no way any person could kill themselves without knife gun or pills. there is never evidence held back from a suicide, its very simple, yet Police investigators have not disclosed the details of Steezs death

      Hanging yourself, suffocation, drowning you are a dumbass
  • StoicMind
    Rip, but based on the tweets from Issa and what I know they all believe in, perhaps he didn't kill himself because he couldn't "take" life, to be honest life seemed pretty good for him, him and his crew is blowing up and he's doing what he loved. I know they believe in the idea of the Christ Consciousness/ Enlightenment and such, in which they view the body as just a vessel and place great importance in the spirit/consciousness. He could have simply felt that his flesh was inhibiting what he truly wanted to achieve, and with him bowing down to the Dark and basphomet who know what that is, I just pray for mercy on his soul.

    From the RT's I can find these are the tweets from @ISSA_DASH that are now deleted. - You fucked up bro. No one who loved Steez lose your mind. He did this shit to affect no one else but us. Selfish. As. Fuck. - All he wanted was for you people to listen to him. His ideas, his plans, what he wanted to do. No one wanted to listen. - Anyone feel anyway I'll smack the shit out of any of you because none of you took the time out EVER IN YOUR LIFE to hear him out. - Yall ain't know Steez was bowing to the Dark and The Basphomet. Yall don't know what that man was dabbling in. Told him stop.

    By listen to him a lot more I meant, see where his future work would've taken him
  • Mark G
    All I can say is damn... I'm not gonna sit here and act like he was my favorite artist, but I really noticed his potential and wanted to listen to him a lot more. AmeriKKKan Korruption was grade A work along with his features on 1999 and Peep. It's sad seeing him go because he had the talent and potential to give us quality rap albums for years. R.I.P. Capital Steez.

    He should have never fixed his lips to speak ill of The Based God. If only he apologized, it wouldn't have ended this way. It didn't have to end like this but he brought it upon himself. Let this be a warning to anyone who thinks they are going to get away with dissing Lil B. Those who insult Lil B suffer THE BASED GODS CURSE just like kreayshawn, soulja boy, asap rocky, lil nico, kevin durant, joe budden and many others have.
