Your last words to me were literally “Just know i love you, for real for real” and i am so happy that was our last convo. I am so so broken right now cuz. I love you and i am so proud of you. You finally started getting the recognition you deserved. And to everyone just so you know he actually felt the love and recognition and he was so grateful for it. The cleanest hearted person. We would literally do anything for each other. Rest up cuzzy. I will keep your name alive until my last breath. Love you cuz❤️💔😪 Long Live @callmecadet

Many gathered in Hyde Park over the weekend and his mother expressed how happy she was at his achievements. She stood strong and spoke words of encouragement whilst requesting that everyone release any anger they are holding. She spoke of how proud she was of him in front of the substantial crowds that gathered, balloons were released on the day too.

The community continues to pay their respects through messages and videos online. Inna lilahi wa inna illahi rajioon. Ameen. We wish him and his family ease Insha Allah.
Rather than beefing on whether music is haram, refocus your energy. If you’re not going to donate, go Hyde park, if not then make Du’a/ pray. Today really humbled me so im doing this for Cadet and the sake of Allah with the hope that when I leave this world he is pleased with me. https://t.co/2lmKBo94SC

A page has been made to build a well for Cadet, which is typically done for Muslims so that he can continue benefitting communities in need after he has passed. His family will also be contacted and involved in the process. https://t.co/bEFBgbjetp

What many people didn't know, @Callmecadet was a talented poet too and he started an instagram poetry page in 2013: midnightemotions. A true lover of love, a peace maker. RIP. Remember Blaine and his family in your prayers.https://t.co/VABaD1EZ6c pic.twitter.com/4UBB4hGKuI
