Capital Steez of the New York group Pro Era is dead at the young age of 19, as confirmed by Joey Bada$$ on Twitter.
Details are murky, but it has been suggested that he took his own life. Â Joey Bada$$ went on Twitter to confirm the sad news and mourn the passing of his partner and friend, real name Jamal Dewer, saying, "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...RIP CAPITAL STEEZ!!! 7.7.93 - 12.24.12.
