And I'd rather die by homicide
Instead of goin' out without a pride
Most people say this line is proof that he didn’t kill himself, but that is dumb. Anyone who says that is missing half of it. In this song he is clearly saying that he is depressed, the hook is about an afterlife for ‘hip-hop heathens’ like himself.
He is implying that if he was to die he would rather get killed that having to kill himself, ‘without a pride’. This doesn’t mean he wouldn’t kill himself. He would just rather get killed at this rate because he wanted to die but couldn’t bare killing himself. At some point it obviously got too much and he killed himself. RIP Capital STEEZ (1993-2012)
