It’s been over five years since the tragic death of Pro Era rapper Capital Steez, but Joey Badass has been determined to make sure his posthumous album eventually sees the light of day. Fans have been waiting for the posthumous album for quite a while, with the record originally scheduled to drop December last year. During a Q&A on his Instagram story, Joey has finally explained the project’s delay.
When asked by a fan when to expect the album, now called King Capital, Joey responded, “Been wanting to answer this for a minute. You guys need to understand I am not the one who is holding back the release of King Capital and I never have been.” He went on to explain that Steez’s mother has been holding back the release of the project, and that she’s the only one who knows the current status regarding its release.

His mother is denying the matrix its proper restoration.. We NEED this album, they better not be watering it down or editing
Still waiting. Smh it's been 7 years
STILL WAITING 2019 🙁
KING CAPITAL WILL DROP.. I CAN FEEL IT
Cmon how can this be ignored? This pisses me off!
Don't release it anymore. We know how that folds out after such a delay.
album is never coming. joey is just pimping steez's legacy at this point. fuckin sellout
Since this day, Joey fell off again. Dropped an album tryna sound like Capital (Still) and never released STEEZ's album….. False-ad all day. Fun fact, he mentioned people within Pro Era circle, and called them something like "Dumb or clowns" for leaking A STEEZ verse. The only two that have done that was Dyme-A-Duzin and some other random. Dyme already had that STEEZ verse from his own song with STEEZ years prior. So, basically Joey was gonna take every vocal or track STEEZ had ever made to make beats over and sell and make profit to make it seem like he did the work and STEEZ didnt write the dope. Then, got mad at the people who exposed that fact because he wanted you to think the song was fresh and never before heard. Greedy ass boy. It's really looking like Joey doesn't give A shit about STEEZ's vision. F*cking Eminem dropped an album before this guy did and we all know how inconsistent Em albums are.
Damn bro.. it still hurts a bit to know we ain’t getting it
In an interview before his death STEEZ said he had a project already finished. Could've been this one, but STEEZ was on another level from the rest of Pro era not only in rapping, but in what he spoke about. Yeah, most of the beast coast artists push for understanding of self and the 3rd eye but STEEZ was really pushing for global awakening and believed in higher consciousness, this album would've caused controversy that's why Joey or whoever is holding it back. Just a thought
To think this still hasn’t dropped is crazy
Dang I wish it was out
Wow, Steez fandom are really cancerous…💆🏾 They sound like the Kurt Cobain insane fandom with their theories.😂
1 day……. 1 day…
Reduce the stress then balance out their imperfections. that was on 500 benz but thats actually a steez line. idk man
Please Momma Steelo drop the album!!!
No type police report
I want it to come but i don't want it to be his last album. Capital steez my favorite rapper for a while and his death still haunts me.
I have proof hes lying through his teeth DM me @mavinak47 on IG. REAL SHIT.
We are expecting some posthumous music from both X and Steez!❤ Rest easy legends🙏
U lyin Joey
U said before that u had to clear the samples but now ur giving another excuse. Snake ass nigga
His family should just release it out of respect .. they should stop chasing money because let’s be honest he’s not going platinum any time soon .. this album is for the real hiphop lovers and for the people who need to hear what steez could have been
Spoke to several family members of STEEZ fam, Joey and the contract are holding up the release.
I been waiting since middle school… I just fucking graduated.
That nigga a SNAKE
if anyone hears vibe ratings capital steez says kids will star popping pills like flintstone gummy vitamins
long live steelo
it’s been so long that I even forgot it was dropping
Funny its a Capital Steez video and they dont show his face at all
This shit so vague, there was more to it than this and I wanna know it
471 likes release dat shit boy.

Don't believe this fake
Rip the trash king
Steez would of been at the top of the rap game right now. He was the GOAt
