I’m his older sister.

Will everyone stop saying Steez's birthname was "Jamal Dewar"! It isn't! So please stop running with the hype and do proper research! Thank you!!!

I'm tired of reading some incorrect info that people most likely came across on the internet...

    Good Morning,

    Thank you for reaching out. This comment was removed because there was not enough information attached to the claim.

    1. If this information is incorrect, please specify the correct name.

    2. Please leave detailed proof where you are getting your information from.

    We will look into this, but would also appreciate some information along with the dispute you are making.

    Good Morning. Seeing how information that was reported by HipHopDX was doneso without providing detailed proof as well, it is just ironic that my claim would be dismissed without first asking for further details or seeking any possible or necessary proof. Nevertheless, I think that being there for 19+ years of "Jamal's" life I would know his birthname wasn't Jamal. I am his older sister who gave him the name Jamal because my birthname is Jamelia (the feminine counterpart if you wish of the name Jamal), therefore I think that is proof enough. I get the information from myself, having known "Jamal" all his life. This information was also provided by our family in the official copy of the orbituary used at my brother's services, if you cared to do your further research. Then, you would have known his BIRTHNAME was actually Courtney E. Dewar Jr., after our father Courtney E. Dewar Sr. May the Most High bless both their souls. Furthermore, I would have very much appreciated if the issue was resolved this way initially, as opposed to being "SPAMMED". That is all.

    Hey Jamelia,

    Thank you for reaching back out and i do apologize for any inconvenience. We have done research and used Billboard and the NY Times as a few of our sources. All the sources we check confirm the name Jamal.

    We have no problem making things right and providing the correct information to the public, but we can not confirm that this information is correct that you are providing.

    Is it possible for you to scan/email us a copy of the Obituary to news@hiphopdx.com please?

    I look forward to your response.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Hello Jamelia,

    If this is truly STEEZ's sister? I do not want to offend or badger you at all so if you don't want to talk to somebody that you don't know in any way, I can understand. My name is Pedro, I'm 21, from California and I'm just a fan of your brother. I've been a fan since I heard his music about a year ago. I've always felt very moved by his music, and have just been devastated by his passing. I really believe that people live on after death and he definitely will live forever through his music. I send you and your family my condolences and hope you are all holding up well.
    Since I had started listening to more of his songs, watching videos and listening to interviews with your brother I had started to feel like I knew him as a person, in a sense, as opposed to just as an artist. From all that I've read from a few small blogs, he seems to have been a great person, down to earth and very approachable but there really isn't a whole lot of info on the internet about him, which is disappointing. So I guess why I'm writing you would be just to ask if you might be inclined to give me some more insight on STEEZ as a person. I'm not asking for any reason other than wanting to know more about someone who is such a big influence on me. I hope to hear back from you, I appreciate your time.

    i lost my brother in 2010, and after your brothers passing i felt the same way I did when my brother died. through his music I woke up and I changed my way of thinking, and many of my friends as well. STEEZ stood for peace a higher calling.

    I don't want to bother you, but I would really like to know where I can find a clearer copy of STEEZ's Bonita Applebum Remix. idk the name (When I wake up, from a full night of sleep, I put my best foot forward indeed)

    THIS IS MY FAVORITE SONG BY HIM. the last song from the T.R.E.K. Reality Show

    Please find out what happen to Capital Steez..... I feel something isn't right. The info that is provided for everyone to read isn't adding up. This young talented MC that was third eye awoke would not have done that to himself. Jamel Dewar aka Capital STEEZ seemed to be on to something and those who didn't want him to wake up more indigo's know. What has happened to him is completely not fair!!!
    His #1 Fan
    I stay on my 47Shit!!!!
    Your message will live on and those who love Steez please keep the message spreading. We all must wake up.

    i think his co-proera partener "joey Bada$$" was tampering with some elements he didnt quite fully understand while having his meeting with Jay-z an acclaimed Illuminati affiliate and made a deal with him Joey knowing he would lose (sacrifice) something valuable to him in his life ha made that risk not knowing what it would be. Turning out to be his be steez knowing he caused this he reacted nervously whenever asked about his partner watch the videos of him being interviewed about it look at how much joey has blown up since steez died basically leaving his other parteners Cj Fly, Statik all where they left off when steez lost his life because truthfully no one knows what happened not even his family why was steez alone on a night youre supposed to be around friends and family as spiritual as he was? Why is joey the only one this big now? Why did the police report show almost no evidence but just claiming he died with no information but self infilicted and he may have jumped off of a building? unless his sister releases that type of information no one will really know and everyone will be left in mystery. Probably how steez wouldve wanted it so people would have to enlighten them selvess to find out.
