Last night marked the third annual STEEZ Day Festival, which went down at the Playstation Theatre in New York.
The event, which brought out the likes of the Joey Bada$$ and the rest of the Pro Era crew, plus A$AP Rocky, The Underachievers, J.I.D, Jazz Cartier and more celebrated the life and legacy of Capital STEEZ who sadly took his own life on Christmas Eve of 2012.
During the annual event, Joey Bada$$ revealed a bit of news that every fan has been waiting to hear:
“So look, we know it’s been five years. And we just want to say, on December 23rd, [STEEZ’s] King Capital will officially be dropping,” he acknowledged to the crowd, which erupted in cheers, before introducing STEEZ’s sister, Jamelia Dewar, continuing “You heard it here first. The most valuable source.”
The posthumous album, which CJ Fly explained to XXL, has been in the works way before STEEZ’s death, stating “What we wanna do is – he did it on some unoriginal beats, [so now] we wanna get the beats made over so we can get the album sold. Give the proceeds to the family. The same thing that he would’ve done if he was here; help his family.”
Back in 2013, a posthumous song titled “King Steelo” was released and is still expected to appear on King Capital.
