To commemorate the day of love, Pro Era drops some unreleased visuals in memory of their fallen soldier Capital STEEZ. The track, titled “135,” appeared on the the Brooklyn rapper’s sorely underrated Amerikkkan Korruption mixtape that released last year.
In the visual, STEEZ goes through the motions over a pretty young thing that catches his eye on the train. He walks the streets of Brooklyn hoping to see the girl again, and even visits a fortune teller to see if his feelings of yearning are warranted.
STEEZ borrows A Tribe Called Quest’s “Relax yourself girl. Please settle down” chant, as he kicks poetic rhymes and metaphors detailing why this girl is more special than the rest. Seeing a young MC speak so prophetically on a topic as complex as love will only remind viewers of what sadly could have been.
The Pro Era clique captioned the visual with a short heartfelt statement, saying “As my bro Steez would have said, Valentines day is Amerikkkan Korruption. Love is free. So instead of buying something, share the video with someone you love. Long Live Steelo.”
