Capital Steez

Christmas Eve 2012 was a sad day for hip hop. Capital Steez, the mega-talented rapper who spit alongside Joey Bada$$ on his breakthrough track "Survival Tactics," died at the age of 19, just days after his Pro Era crew dropped a new mixtape, PEEP: The aPROcalypse. Steez's last tweet read "The End," prompting many to believe he killed himself.
