Joey Bada$$ has announced that the long-awaited release of Capital STEEZ's posthumous debut studio album, King Capital—originally scheduled for December 23—will be delayed until further notice.

In a post to his Instagram, Bada$$ explained that the delay is due to "business legalities" and "sample clearances."

December 23 will mark the five-year anniversary of STEEZ's death after the Brooklyn native and PRO ERA founder committed suicide.

Fans who have been patiently waiting for the album's release since Bada$$ first announced its imminent release in April 2013 might be discouraged by this news, but delaying the release is actually in the best interest of the material. In addition to not jamming a record into the release calendar right before the holidays, it's encouraging to read that the label is patiently waiting for the ink to dry on the necessary sample clearance paperwork instead of scrapping songs that contained samples.

Patience isn't a skill most music fans have in 2017, but if King Capital is indeed the last piece of music the world receives from STEEZ, we should be willing to wait for as long as it takes.
