One year after Capital STEEZ’s death, Eli Rosenberg investigates why the promising young rapper took his own life.
PEEP: The aPROcalypse, on December 21, 2012, with Steez featured on five tracks. But just two days later, Steez, 19, was found dead on a prominent thoroughfare in Manhattan’s Flatiron District. The young rapper had leapt off a building early in the morning before Christmas Eve, propelling himself so far that he landed in the street. Dewar left no note other than a terse last message he blasted out to his friends and fans on Twitter, one minute before midnight: “The end.” He jumped into the cold December night just moments later.
Most people think he’s nuts but I thought his show was amazing the other night very out the box. Footage by yours truely head to YouTube channel for more in a few days. #yeezus #kanye #whitejesus #mrwest #britishny
