In the early hours of this morning, Joey Badass tweeted "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.." followed by RIP CAPITAL STEEZ!!! 7.7.93 - 12.24.12”.

Although there are very few details yet, it would appear that this tradegy may have been self-inflicted, Jamal (Steez) posting on his twitter shortly before the news came through, "The end."

Jamal Dewar, also known as Capital STEEZ was taken from us at only 19. He was one of the most promising young rappers of our generation. He had so much potential and we were all looking forward to seeing what he would do next. His song ‘Vibe Ratings’ was the inspiration for the name and creation of this page, and he will be sorely missed by his family, friends and fans.

R.I.P Capital Steez - 7.7.93 - 24.12.12
