Family, friends, fans and peers of late artist Cadet packed out the O2 Academy Brixton to pay tribute to his legacy at The Rated Legend Show.
Krept organised the live event and pulled together the show which featured over 25 live acts. The artists performed in front of a sold-out crowd and paid tribute to Cadet on what would have been his 29th birthday.
The emotional night honoured and celebrated the life of the lyrical storyteller and positive character.
Charlie Sloth greeted the crowd and premiered the video to Cadet’s new track “Gang Gang” and Charlie revealed that Cadet developed and directed the visuals to the politically charged visuals himself.
Mr Hudson then opened the show and offered an emotional performance of “Forever Young”.
The Rated Legend Show saw performances from many including Stormzy, Yungen, Lethal Bizzle, Chip, Fekky, Big Shaq, Not3s, AJ Tracey, Unknown T, Swarmz, AJ and Deno, Tion Wayne, Ay Em, NSG, Afro B, Amelia Monét, Ramz, Big Tobz, Dappy, WSTRN, One Acen, Hardy Caprio and Dave.
Krept and Konan honoured Cadet by performing several tracks and thanking fans for their attendance. Krept and Konan also called on DigDat and K-Trap for a performance of the “Air Force” remix as well as MoStack for the “Liar Liar” remix.
Stormzy offered a fitting and emotionally charged performance of “Blinded By Your Grace” along with soulful backing vocalists.
Attendees had no prior knowledge of the lineup and showed up in the masses to benefit the charitable cause of the show. Tickets for the show sold out in minutes and those who missed out were able to watch a live stream on YouTube and were provided with a link to donate to the fund. The link to donate can be found here.
All proceeds from The Rated Legend Show will be donated to a charitable cause which will be chosen by Cadet’s fans and supporters. Current suggestions for charitable causes include a trust to help young up and coming artists, a fund to provide free studio sessions to children and a studio built in Cadet’s name.
