Pro Era officially drops off the video treatment for “Like Water” off PEEP: The Aprocalypse. This song features the late Pro Era member Capital STEEZ along with Joey and CJ Fly. The video serves as a nice memorial for the late young artist and if you’re a hip hop head you’ll definitely take a liking to this raw and emotional cut. Glad to see this video finally drop, “Like Water” is probably my favorite tune off the entire project. R.I.P. Capital STEEZ.
“Capitalizing the name “Capital STEEZ” is now as good as remembering any credible historic leader leading a militant army of troops. “Like Water” is the visual stepping stone to what STEEZ lead for the listeners of revolutionary music.”
