This Is Pro Era’s Member Capital Steez Newest Video.
Long Live Steez, May He Rest In Paradise!!
The rise of Capital STEEZ and the Pro.Era movement is so fresh, which is why it is so hard to comprehend the death of the 19 year old Brooklyn up-and-comer. Breaking onto the scene almost as heavily as his group counterpart Joey Bada$$, with their eye-catching and ear-pleasing boom-bap single “Survival Tactics,” STEEZ was already buzzing among those in the elite media.
December 24th 2012 was the day of his passing, news that was harsh to those who loved his music and especially hard for those who knew him personally.
“This unfortunate xmas eve.. Lost a best friend, a brother, a pro, a partner. Letting go is never easy.. May ur soul rest in peace Jamal..,” relayed Bada$$ through Twitter. “SICK TO MY STOMACH…”
Those in close relation to STEEZ and others offered their condolences through the social networking site as official comment from them early was understandably scarce.
