He was 19 years old and at press time his cause of death is still unknown, but his last tweet, which came at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday read: “The end,” leading many to believe that he took his own life.
“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..,”
Joey wrote on his Twitter on Monday (December 24). “RIP CAPITAL STEEZ!!! 7.7.93 – 12.24.12.”
Steez broke out alongside Joey when he guested on the teen’s ear-catching single “Survival Tactics” appearing on the track’s second verse in February. The Brooklyn, New York MC released his debut mixtape AmeriKKKan Korruption in April and was featured on a number of tracks off PEEP, the mixtape that the PE crew dropped on Friday.
