The debut album by rapper Cadet, who was killed in a car crash last year, has been completed under the guidance of Krept of Krept & Konan, with a release date now set for April.

Titled ‘The Rated Legend’, Krept acts as executive producer, and has helped bring together guests on the record, including Wretch 32, Chip, Young Adz, Konan, Swarmz, Tion Wayne and Deno.

“I am determined and driven to keep Cadet’s name alive and to making sure I can continue what he started and achieved, because I know how much this meant to him”, says Krept. “It was a labour of love and passion to create this project from just hearing random tracks he recorded and turning it into a full body of work”.

“Cadet recorded so much good music that it would have felt wrong to have not done this”, he goes on. “Cadet was so loved that filling missing verses or hooks from guest artists was easy to do to finish this album. All producers and artists have done this all for free. That’s love. Cadet would love this album just as much as we do. It has versatility and really shows his range as an artist”.

“With this album Cadet’s legacy will keep going, his name will live on”, he concludes. “I have enjoyed every moment of putting this album together with our family. You will hear why he is no longer underrated”.

The album is set for release on 10 Apr.
