Capital Steez dies aged 19

Shocking reports are in this Christmas Eve that Pro Era founding member Jamal Dewar, better known as rapper Capital STEEZ, died earlier today.

The death of the 19 year old Brooklyn, New York hailing rapper, who was brought to the attention of many via his quotable packed verse on his best friend and fellow Pro Era member Joey BadA$$‘s “Survival Tactics” (followed by his thought provoking solo FreeLP release AmeriKKKan Korruption), was confirmed via twitter by Joey and fellow Pro Era members.

No official cause of death has been disclosed but early reports indicate that Jamal Dewar may have taken his own life after leaving a haunting final tweet.

Rest In Power Capital STEEZ (7.7.93 – 12.24.12). Our deepest condolences go out to his Family, the Pro Era crew and Cinematic Music Group
