Listen to Capital Steez’s Last Recorded Verse
Fans of the late Capital Steez are looking forward to his posthumous release, ‘King Capital,’ but until then, a new verse has surfaced from a mixtape by Brooklyn rapper SMTH. Apparently, Steez’s verse on ‘The Last Straw’ was recorded five days before he committed suicide at the age of nineteen in December, making it the last-known recorded verse of his career.On ‘The Last Straw,’ Steez sounds fed up about the current state of the music industry, calling out ‘campfire rappers’ who brag about their fancy material objects. At the beginning of his verse, he speaks out about being overlooked, rapping with a clear chip on his shoulder. It makes one wonder whether it was the pressure of being ignored despite being such a key figure in the Beast Coast movement that drove him to his untimely demise. Meanwhile, SMTH is no slouch on the microphone either and displays an equal amount of hunger in his verse. Check the song out below. It’s a shame that we will never see how much further Steez could have taken his career this year.
