Life is short. This is the type of line that pops up as a horrible reminder from time to time, usually accompanied by tragedy. Such is the case this morning, when the world learned of Cadet‘s passing at 28; his family revealed that he was in a car accident while on the way to a performance.
“We The Family of Blaine Cameron Johnson otherwise known as Cadet (Underrated Legend) would like to share the sad news that during the early hours of 9th February 2019 he passed away as a passenger in a taxi, en route to a performance. Right now we the family appreciate your patience and will share with you any information as and when we can. Thanks for your support in advance. Love The Johnson Family #cadetcadet #imbuff #underratedlegend #ripcadet'”
A cousin of fellow UK emcee Krept, Cadet was steadily rising from the underground in South London, and was on his way to proper success. To see him life taken away so soon is heartbreaking.
Condolences to Cadet’s friends and family on their unfortunate loss.
So sad about Cadet, my thoughts are with his family. Rest in power bro ♥️
