After releasing the remix track “Like Water” in dedication to late rapper Capital STEEZ on Christmas Eve, Statik Selektah followed up by dedicating an entire tribute mix to the 19-year-old during the ShowOff Radio on Shade 45 Thursday night (December 27). Listen below.
STEEZ and his Pro Era crew had been celebrating the release of their mixtape PEEP: The aPROcalypse just weeks before his death. He wrote his final tweet “The End” just before midnight on Sunday (December 23), pointing to suicide as the possible cause of death. Fans of the rapper flooded Twitter with goodbyes and an outpouring of kind words.
STEEZ broke out alongside Joey Bada$$ when he dropped a guest 16 on the teen’s ear-catching single “Survival Tactics” appearing on the track’s second verse in February. The Brooklynite released his debut mixtape AmeriKKKan Korruption in April.
