Capital STEEZ Dead At 19, Joey Bada$$ Confirms

Capital STEEZ Dead At 19, Joey Bada$$ Confirms

capital-steez-wall2Right around midnight, Capital STEEZ tweeted “The End.” Shortly thereafter, the 19-year-old rapper reportedly took his own life in the early hours of Dec. 24. These reports have been confirmed by fellow Pro Era member Joey Bada$$ on Twitter, as well as other sources close to the late musician. The devastating news comes after the recent release of Pro Era’s Peep: The Apocalypse mixtape.

A truly sad story and yet another tragic loss for the hip-hop community. Our thoughts and prayers are with STEEZ’s family and friends, especially during this holiday season.

    No offense, but all of this looks really fake to me…I mean it’s so sudden, and the whole “Twitter” thing…I need something more credible.

    If it’s true, Rest in Paradise Captial STEEZ

    I was really hoping it wasn’t true when i saw Cap’s twitter this morning. Another young visionary taken, rest in peace.
