Joey Bada$$ Honors His Late Best Friend in "Like Water" Video

Brooklyn rapper Joey Bada$$ is pouring some out for fellow rapper Capital Steez in his latest video, "Like Water." Steez died of an apparent suicide last year on Christmas Eve. After he heard the news, Joey tweeted that he "lost a best friend, a brother, a pro, a partner."

In the Jonah Schwartz-directed clip (The Black Keys, Curren$y), Joey alongside the rest of his Pro Era crew take a tour of Brooklyn, but things don't look quite right—docks are broken along the waterside, buildings are dilapidated and the "C" in "Barclays Center" is falling off its sign. In an effort to spruce the place up and pay tribute to their friend, Pro Era spray paints a stunning mural of Capital Steez on the side of a building, and the crew salute their city as the video ends.

Joey Bada$$'s debut album, B4.Da.$$, is due out this year.
