Pro Era Family Tree: Meet The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Crew Spearheaded By Joey Bada$$

Capital Steez

Name: Capital STEEZ
Twitter: @CapitalSTEEZ_
Age: 19
Role: Rapper
Bio: Made a name for himself with his verse and the video for “Survival Tactics” alongside Joey on the latter’s 1999 mixtape, and played a big role on the Peep: The aPROcalypse group mixtape that came out in late December. One of the most prolific members of the P.E. Conglomerate—as well as its founder—he was also the group’s spiritual leader, introducing many members to the concepts of the body’s chakras and the opening of the “third eye,” both of which crop up repeatedly throughout Pro Era’s rhymes. Unfortunately, two days after the tape dropped, STEEZ took his own life, ending the promising career of a kid who was very clearly next in line to step out from the Pro Era umbrella.
Best Lyric: “Riding on hoverboards, wiping out motherboards
Stopped spitting fire cause my motherfuckin lung is scorched
King Arthur when he swung his sword
A king author I ain’t even use a pen in like a month or four”
—“Survival Tactics,” 1999
# Of Third Eye Mentions: 8
