RIP: Courtney Dewar aka Jamal aka Capital Steez (7/7/93 – 12/24/12)

Capital Steez (Jamal Dewar) at Knitting Factory, April 2012


Earlier this morning I got the news that Rapper Capital Steez had passed away.

He was 19.

Capital Steez, known to us as Jamal, was a member of the Pro Era Crew and a best friend to band member Joey Bada$$.

He was extremely talented, but even more than that – he was a kind soul. I knew him briefly, but I always noticed how gentle his manner was in our exchanges.

I’m at a loss for words.

Rest in peace sweet boy…
