New Music Video: No More Letters – Cadet

Dropping movie-like visuals, CADET releases ‘No More Letters’ aka ‘Letter To Krept (Part 2)’ taken from the eagerly anticipated ‘The Commitment 2’ E.P, due for release on 21st July.

A hugely prominent track in the understanding of this lyricist’s journey, the impeccable timing of the release is even more poignant. Delving into the mechanisms of CADET and his positioning within the elite of Britain’s emcees, one of the most pivotal moments of his career thus far was with the release of his original ‘Letter To Krept’ in August 2016. Within the original record, CADET refers to Krept unexpectedly taking him to Wireless Festival. The moment is life changing for him as he is able to envisage that one-day, he too, could perform his own slot. Fast forward to July 2017 and CADET delivers ‘No More Letters’. The record is a statement and a nod to Krept, which feels like the perfect beginning of a new chapter for the rapper. Journeys have been completed, peace has been restored and ambitions have been fulfilled as taking it full circle, CADET is set to perform his own slot at Wireless on 8th July.

Having already released the first taste of ‘The Commitment 2’ via the release of ‘Instagram Girls’ featuring Konan, CADET continues to use his music in an astute way that is shrouded in deeper meanings and insightfulness, yet with a playful and accessible magnetism. His work has already been championed by, BBC Radio 1/1Xtra DJ’s, Semtex and Charlie Sloth, whilst tastemaker magazines such as Notion and Complex hold him in high regard, tipping him for continued success. Public co-signs from UK’s music kings including Wiley and Stormzy lead the excitement surrounding CADET and ‘The Commitment 2’.

After teasing followers with a snippet of ‘Instagram Girls’ at the end of 2016, CADET opens the journey to his ‘The Commitment 2’ E.P release with the long-awaited single. Featuring Konan (Krept & Konan), the record speaks the bitter truth about social media in a poetic and insightful way, edged with charm, grace and a splash of playfulness as only CADET can do.

“We live in an era where the internet has become reality and reality has taken a backseat; where people have more to say in captions than actual conversations. I’m just saying don’t get the wrong type of attention mixed up with the right, know your worth, but real worth not that cheap fly by night worth. Also one thing aired my DM so I made a tune innit” – CADET.

The captivating lyricist rose to stardom through a selection of gripping freestyles that boasted honest and engaging concepts. CADET’s ability to capture passion, pain and power within his bars has made him relatable, genuine and accessible to a wide audience and resulted in him being aligned with the elite of Britain’s emcees within just eighteen months. He has been championed by BBC Radio 1/1Xtra DJ’s Semtex and Charlie Sloth, toured with Krept & Konan and is set to perform at Wireless Festival for the first time this year.

The next move by CADET has been a highly anticipated one for both his fans and peers. Having gained public support from artists including Wiley and Stormzy, and leaving a trail of noteworthy plaudits such as a freestyle review by Complex, which states: “CADET‘s new freestyle is better than some rappers’ whole mixtape”, the hunger for his new music contained within ‘The Commitment 2’ is prevalent.

Named as one of Annie Mac’s artists to watch in 2016 in Mixmag, he’s definitely on the tip on everyone’s tongue…check out the remix to Big N Serious.
