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 ting 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.
