Capital STEEZ

According to Pitchfork and "various sources", Capital STEEZ (real name Jamal Dewar), of Joey Bada$$'s crew, Pro Era, passed away this morning (12/24) at 19 years old. Joey tweeted, "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.." and hours before that Capital STEEZ himself eerily tweeted "The end." Joey has continued to tweet on the situation with statements like "SICK TO MY STOMACH.." and "RIP CAPITAL STEEZ!!! 7.7.93 - 12.24.12." Other details on the situation are still sparse at the moment. Rest in peace, Jamal.

Joey Bada$$ and Pro Era were scheduled to play 285 Kent in Brooklyn on Saturday night (12/22), but the show ended up being postponed.

Pro Era just released their free Peep the Aprocalypse mixtape this past Friday (12/21). You can download the whole thing at that link and stream the track "Run or Fly," which features Capital STEEZ, below.

2:55 is right, Capital STEEZ is not in that photo. RIP. An amazingly bright young talent taken away too soon. Prayers got out to his family and the rest of the Pro Era crew.

hey guys, I'm really going out on a limb here, but I would venture to say that Eugene might have been joking around just a little bit. I could be wrong though.
