The world lost a legend-in-the-making a couple weeks ago in Jamal Dewar AKA Pro Era MC Capital Steez. We initially reported the death as a suicide shortly after he posted on twitter “the end” with no explanation or reasoning behind it. Well, I decided to put my investigating skills to the test and see if I could come up with some motive or explanation that would further explain this incident, and I think I’ve got some answers.

Jamal Dewar was a huge advocate of spiritualism and the realms of nature. He also believed the world was going to end in 2047. He believed that dying isn’t the end in his case, and that he will be resurrected in 2047 as a god. He thought that he was destined to be a catalyst for change on earth and that the body he was in wasn’t his “true form”, so he took his life to become his true self. Baphomet = Prophet of God.
Jamal died on 12/23/12. If you add those numbers up you get the number 47. Again, he believed that doomsday will occur in 2047, and that he will resurrect as a god in that year. This number is seen in many different ways throughout his music.
Another commonly cited diagnosis is Schizophrenia. Here’s a common definition of it. It kind of fits his theory of him being close to God, etc.
One last thing. It’s been proven that people with schizophrenia get strong symptoms of it after doing certain drugs like Marijuana, LSD, Salvia, and Shrooms. Who knows? Maybe his experimentation with these drugs might have worsened his symptoms.
Whatever the cause of his death may be, it’s pretty clear that the root of it is behind this spiritualistic mind set that is seen to be rearing it’s head in the hip hop community (i.e. Flatbush Zombies, The Underachievers, Ab-Soul and even Pro Era). A lot of it is beyond my level of understanding about it, but if you want to learn more, I suggest you further research the principles behind the recent “indigo” phenomenon. More importantly, always keep an open mind and strive to look beyond the music that’s presented in front of you. The subliminals are everywhere. RIP Steelo. May your legend live on in a brighter light.
