Tragedy often strikes at unexpected times, and the death of 19-year old Jamal Dewar, better known as Capital STEEZ of Pro Era is a prime example. Tweets from numerous members of the Pro Era clique confirm his passing, but the most chilling of all came early this morning at 2:59 A.M. when Jamal simply tweeted, “The End,” suggesting that his passing may have been self-inflicted. At only 19, Capital STEEZ was already renowned for his potent lyricism and intelligence. More to follow as details become available. Our deepest condolences go out to Jamal’s family and friends.
