Capital Steez, Rapper, Dead at 19: Reports

By Daniel Gates

(Pro Era)

The rapper Capital Steez has died, according to his collaborator Joey Bada$$.

He was 19.

The teenage performer, whose real name was Jamal Dewar, was part of the Pro Era crew, which released their “PEEP: The Aprocalypse” mix tape just days ago.

There’s speculation that Dewar committed suicide early Monday after he cryptically tweeted, “The end.”

Suicide has not been confirmed as the cause of death.

Dewar’s friend and collaborator Joey Bada$$ announced the news of his passing on Twitter.

“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,” wrote Bada$$.

He added, “RIP CAPITAL STEEZ!!! 7.7.93 – 12.24.12.”
