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…
