Joey Bada$$ and Pro Era announced yesterday (May 6) they will honor the fallen founder of the Brooklyn-bred collective, Capital Steez, with the first-annual “Steez Day” Festival in New York City.

The event is scheduled to take place July 7 at the Central Park Summerstage.

Joey will be joined by Beast Coast affiliates Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers.

“We’re gonna have a great time in honor of the life of my brother Capital STEEZ,” Joey wrote via Instagram. 

Recently, Bada$$ spoke with HipHopDX about his relationship with Steez.

“I was a leader my whole life, but when I met Capital Steez he was the first person I ever followed,” Bada$$ told DX. “What I seen in him was an older me. He was the only person I ever met where I felt like, ‘Alright, following behind this guy won’t get me into anything bad.”

Tickets for the event will be available through Ticketfly starting Friday (May 8) at noon EST. “Steez Fest” is slated to take place July 7 at the Central Park Summerstage in New York City.
