    Cadet entered the spotlight in 2015, following the release of his first freestyle, “Slut”, while the rapper’s 2018 single “Advice” peaked at number 27 on the UK Top 40.

    The tragic death of British rapper Blaine Cameron Johnson, better known by his stage name Cadet, caused a wave of outrage among his fans after one person publicly inquired about refunds for tickets to a gig at Keele University, where the singer was supposed to perform.

    According to the Birmingham Mail, Cadet was killed while en route to the performance when his taxi collided with a van.

    ​"What about full/partial refunds for the people who brought tickets to see Cadet? the description for the event was literally 'Cadet live at Keele SU'", a user named Jordi Foxx asked, as quoted by the newspaper, in response to a tweet by Keele University Students Union offering their condolences to the rapper’s loved ones.

    This comment quickly evoked a negative response from a number of people, who deemed it as disrespectful towards the deceased.

    ​The newspaper also noted that local police are currently investigating the crash which claimed Cadet’s life, and are "appealing for information from any witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage" of the incident.
