Shortly after midnight, STEEZ, real name Jamal Dewar, send out a message on his twitter: "The End" and committed suicide hours after; he was 19. Fellow Pro Era member Joey Bada$$ verified the sad news on his twitter later in the day. The exact details behind his death have not been confirmed yet.

Both the rappers, along with the rest of the Pro Era group, had just released their mixtape PEEP: The aPROcalypse on Dec 21.

that's really sad. I can relate to the place that he was in emotionally. Still a selfish act no matter how you view it.

RIP

Wow, you must be the dumbest people on earth to think suicide is selfish. If you feel so much pain
that you actually have the need to do it then the people that seemingly loved you or cared for you did
a
incredibly bad job at it and if they didn't they cared about someone that's a huge dickface and why
would you care about him then? Whoops, that last sentence came out a bit weird.

The worst part is that suicidal feelings are just temporary, and there is always help available. It's
so sad that he won't be able to look back at this period in his life and, in retrospect, be so happy
that he didn't end it all.

Horrible news.

Don't even know this guy's music. Chances are, I'd hate it since it's rap. But still... Being the same age that's just heavy. I've known/been close to people who have died this way. It's hard.

@TRMshadow and anyone else calling suicide selfish
I didn't find a clear argument myself but I completely agree with this:

"Suicide is a desperate act by someone who is in intense pain and wants their pain to stop. That is a HUMAN response to extreme pain, not a selfish one. And over 90 percent of the people who die by suicide have a mental illness at the time of their death, so they are not thinking clearly.

Saying that a person who had severe clinical depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, PTSD, or a similar illness was engaging in an act of selfishness when they died by suicide – even though their thought process, mood, and judgment were greatly affected by their mental illness – is not only inaccurate, but downright cruel, to both the suicide angel and the suicide survivors."

Maybe you have at some point thought about suicide and your way to go would have been selfish but a normal person that is just in a bad mood and fed up with things won't just kill themselves, and definitely not to hurt others and say, there you go, now I killed myself because of you. Or maybe those cases exist but it's not the majority.

^exactly. Vast majority of people who commit (or try to) wholly believe that what they're doing is for everyone's betterment, that theyre a burden and people will be able to move on without them dragging them down. Now I'm not saying they're correct in thinking that, but don't call them selfish for it.
