Why do I listen to him?

I listen to Capital STEEZ because I enjoy his style of music and I loved the details he put behind it. Because of how spiritual he was he put lots of detail in his music. I don’t necessarily agree with anything that he believes in but it’s extremely interesting and fun to try and decipher what he has written.
