He was 28.

The accident occurred in Betley, a village in Staffordshire.

“Officers from the Staffordshire and West Midlands Serious Collision Investigation Unit are continuing to investigate the incident,” reads a portion of the police announcement.

A rep for Cadet, a rising artist who hailed from London, said the rapper was riding as a passenger in a taxi on his way to a performance at Keele University.

The hip hop artist earned a following over the years both as a solo performer and for his work alongside fellow British rappers Krept and Konan.

Krept was Cadet’s cousin.

“My life will never be the same again,” Krept tweeted Saturday. “I love you and will forever miss you. I cant believe it. I am heartbroken. Rest in peace cuz. You finally started getting the recognition you deserved. Im so proud of you. My left lung. Im devestated and broken right now.”
