Capital Steez (@CapitalSTEEZ_)
A 19-year old New York rapper named Capital Steez, real name Courtney Dewar Jr., was a founder of the Brooklyn-based rap collective called Pro Era. On December 23rd, 2012, at exactly 11:59pm, Capital Steez had tweeted “The end.” before committing suicide by jumping off the rooftop of the Cinematic Music Group headquarters in Manhattan. Some of his close friends claimed his actions were due to severe mental disorders, such as schizophrenia heightened by drug use. Dewar was believed to have an obsession with the number “47” and the end of the Rastafarian movement which could have, in part, led to his suicide.
