The anticipated Capital Steez posthumous album has been on the way for over a year now, and while fans were hoping to get their ears on it before the end of 2017, it looks like that won't be happening.

Joey Bada$$ gives an update on the project from the late Pro Era founder. The album was originally announced to release on Dec. 23 next week. According to the Brooklyn MC, King Steez has been pushed back due to "business legalities and sample clearances," and is being delayed until further notice.

Knowing that fans will express their disappointment over the last minute delay, Bada$$ assures supporters that it will be "well worth the wait," and he will do everything they can to make it just right.

If you recall, Capital Steez tragically committed suicide on Christmas Even in 2012, after jumping off the roof of the Cinematic Music Group building. Joey Bada$$ revealed back in 2013 that a posthumous project from the late rapper was to come sometime in the future.

Pro Era continues to celebrate his legacy with a STEEZ Day annual event, where Bada$$ previously revealed this year that the album would drop in December.
