The Legend of Capital STEEZ Remains Alive In A Colorful New Video
Today (August 26), Pro Era has released a visual treatment for “Herban Legend,” a song by the late Brooklyn, New York rapper Capital STEEZ. The song itself was released in 2012, but in a move that helps keep his memory alive, the team he helped found and lead opted to drop its video now.
Produced by Kirk Knight, “Herban Legend” was on STEEZ’s debut solo mixtape, AmeriKKKan Korruption. In it, he recounts a day spent rolling sticky, watching videos, and perusing the daily profundities of life, while getting lifted. Its video is an animated adaptation of the laid-back tune, which takes things back to basics with not much more than a hard drum beat and STEEZ’s buttery verses.
His death at only 19 meant that, in many ways, STEEZ’s contributions to the world were cut painfully short. Nevertheless, as he mentions in “Herban Legend,” the Force will be with you, always. And with that, Heads are reminded that legends never die.
