Joey Badass Explains Reason Behind Capital Steez’s Album Delay

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.
