    Wow, this is terribly tragic that this young man ended his life like that. Were things that bad for him?

  • H. U. S.

    We need to advocate counseling for people, I can’t say young people since Don Cornelius took his life this year. Sad…

    • yeah but you never know who’s going thru what … if folks dont speak up things like this will continue to happen … that person has to want to get help !! but seeing how deep Pro Era is … its surprising that he didnt have anyone to talk to or no one seen it coming …. def one of those things that leave you curious like why ?? but i remember a time when folks used to say only white people kill themselves ….. now its like black folks are commiting suicide left n right smh

    loneliness kills

  • Kinda selfish to ruin the holidays for his famz.


    • TruthSerum

      The Suicide rate always rises during the holidays.

      • Yeah, but it’s still selfish.

    • mademan3000


      • Worse part is…he was chilling!

    • Eli Pinilla

      I was thinking the exact same shit

      • Hell yeah…fugged the famz forever!

      • Eli Pinilla

        Yea man, fucked they whole holiday. And every year, till they die, they gone have to think bout this tragic ass shit every christmas…

      • Eli Pinilla

        And he could spit too. Been riding too that 1999 for a min now. He had potential

      • That’s what makes him a hoe@$$ninja!

      • Truth Powell

        Maybe his fam is one of the reasons why he felt so depressed and alone to the point he wanted to take his own life?
        If anything thats some of the first people you should turn to and that should help if you’re feeling suicidal. And yes I don’t know the exact circumstances, just food for thought.

      • scullyson

        Real talk…Everybody dont possess the stregnth to keep it moving inspite of…unfortunate but real as hell. just saying

    • atle fjeldstad

      I agree! Too bad though..

    • hoeyuno

      yea fo sho. and I’m not saying this is the case here but this generation and there E doesn’t help. you have a good night followed by 2 days of brutal depression. I had a homie who was on a e binge that ended with a noose around his neck in his moms basement.

      • I had a homie hang up @ 12yrs old, but other than that, all kept it moving!

        Seems like his peeps let him down!

  • TheTruthBeTold

    With that type of music, I could very well see how suicide could be a choice for him.

    • InTheNightKitchen

      What do you mean?

    • What are you talking about?

      • Truth Powell

        just another dumb ass insensitive square bitch. With that pic I can see why she’s so angry.

      • Eli Pinilla

    • Cashmerecore93

  • johnblacksad

    i once read on this board that you shouldn’t take a permanent decision for a temporary problem… dunno what was goin on here… just sad… RIP

    • ^^This

    • In his mind, his must have felt the problem wasn’t temporary.

  • quetzalstar

    thats irresponsible reporting. its only a rumored suicide at this point.

  • MiiUziWeighsATon

    Damn sun was nasty wit the apparatus too…was looking for that whole team to usher in a new era of dope MCing for the East Coast

  • MiiUziWeighsATon

    Just cranked survival tactics at the highest decibles…RIP sun

  • eddieknucks

    This shit is happening on the reg in our community folks. Black folks down play the symptoms of mental illness. We ridicule folks for going to talk to someone about the things going on upstairs. There are so many undiagnosed cases of bi polar disorder in the hood its crazy. Shit most of us suffer from post traumatic stress and don’t know it.

    • cityking9ne

      That’s real talk.

  • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

    this nigga mixtape sucked so bd, the nigga killed himself. this dumb ass bitch!

    • Chad B.

      ^Yeah, because your mixtapes are soooooo much more popular & famous than his…

      • Inmadopicouroz✓QUEENSᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        im alive making plenty of money and mentally stable. ur point? He isn’t popular never will be RI sh8t biotC&!!!!

      • Chad B.

        Way to go make-fun of a dead guy… You’re very considerate, bro.

  • sad r.i.p. depression is a mf and the devil is a liar

  • youngplaya

    RIP. Must of been filled with a lot of pain. Take the time to talk to your homies on a real level sometimes without all the stuntin and frontin and fake ballin bullshit. Fame, money and hoes doesn’t equal happiness forever. An encouraging word and just knowing somebody understands what your dealing with means a lot. Peace!!

  • The suicide is a RUMOR! Get your shit right Allhiphop. Your the only people that are “Confirming” its a suicide when the NYPD didnt even released a statement yet.

    • quetzalstar


  • I disagree w/ the folks callin it selfish. I’ve got friends who’ve commited suicide & they were far from selfish people. Maybe a little too giving or understanding. No, the selfish are the ones who go on shooting rampages & then kill themselves, leaving carnage & confusion as a goodbye. Don’t judge people who deal w/ depression, suicide victims may underestimate others’ love, but that’s far from selfish.

    • To do it on X Mas eve?

      IMHO, that’s a shot at the famz!

  • greeneyedbandit

    God bless his family and friends who loved him~

  • Courage is not the absence of fear, but the conquest of it.

  • i know of joey bada$$ but wasnt too familar with capital steez yall right dude was nice … why couldnt one of these wack rappers off themselves f*ck our world smh . R.I.P

    Black folks didn’t used to do this type of shiit. We used to have our own style musically, fashion wise and in life in general. Now our soul music is really some pop shiit and we’re wearing Mick Jagger pants. As for Pro Era, had never heard of them until now.

    • Eli Pinilla

      They are the oposite of everything u just mentioned

  • Mad lOve to Capital Steez and his family. I loved that song, my first time seeing his face tho. It made me proud to see young brothers out there going against the grain. His life should b celebrated!

  • casper

    all of you people dont know him like i did his music was always straight raw and he was always a mellow ass nigga and most of all he was my homie REST IN PIECE JAMAL AKA CAPITAL STEEZ

  • The new hope!!!!

  • trixnkix637

    Everybody got demons & ish. None of us are robots or samurais. Some aren’t equipped with the skills to handle the cards life deals. Damn shame nevertheless.

    RIP for the good who die young

  • Just another selfish coward who thinks of no one but themselves. Everyone has at least somebody who cares about them, how does taking your life help? I will save my grief and sadness for the babies born sick, they didn’t have a choice.

  • Black Exodus

    Depression is the weapon for suicide. Love is the weapon against Suicide. Material possession is not the remedy to happiness. You have to find happiness within and focus on expanding your inner light and the reflection is all you desire on this physical plane. This is where strong leadership becomes valuable. Unfortunately, the youngsters have nothing to see or idolize that is “Soul in the Positive”. I challenge you. If you have positive energy and it shines bright…give some of that wisdom to the receptive.The Dark energy is powerful and cancerous. RIP. to this brother…while his soul was tortured…the spirit never dies.

  • all this nigga did was ruin christmas for everybody that loved him for the rest of thier lives… good job.

  • quetzalstar

    How do you confirm a suicide before the NYPD or official Autopsy? Incredibly irresponsible reporting and if i was a family member i’d come looking for you and knock you upside your head. Have a little more compassion for the family and his loved ones than to just recklessly spread an unconfirmed rumor.You journalists underestimate your reach and perpetuate he say/she say so callously. no respect for that article and as you can see the comments are full of people that take your word for truth. be responsible.

  • awesome! what great news, and a wonderful chrismas present to America.
    Now if only other “rappers” would follow in his footsteps, we could make some real progress

    • Chad B.

      Y’know, that’s pretty fucked-up how you wish death to a Rapper like that… Just realize the fact that he was a man with a career, and a successful person as well.
