As reported on Shadow and Act … Oh, wait SPOILER ALERT … Cool? Carrying on. So basically, a body was rolling unceremoniously down a hill on Friday’s episode of Power Book III: Raising Kanan. And if that’s what we think it is, then rapper turned-actor Joey Bada$$ is done for in the series.

This past weekend, the artist who plays the role of Kadeem “Unique” Mathis posted a caption that read “Unique Forever.” Whelp, take that for what you will.

ICYMI, on the last episode of Power Book III: Raising Kanan, it got tense between Bada$$’s character and his bro, Ronnie, played by Grantham Coleman. This seemingly led to Unique’s demise.


“Unique is the younger brother of Ronnie, so I feel like this is the first time that people can see Unique [excited about something],” Joey Bada$$ told Shadow and Act in an interview (which you can view in full above) ahead of the season’s premiere. “You see the excitement in Unique. You almost see his inner child a little bit, like, ‘Wow, Ronnie’s home. My big brother.’ And you get to see a little more vulnerability from Unique this season, which I think adds a very interesting layer.”

To Power fans, Unique was a big-time drug lord but had a softer side as the love interest of Patina Miller’s character Raquel Thomas.

“Despite these two characters having moments of wanting to tear each other’s heads off, I think there was always an undeniable chemistry between them,” Joey Bada$$ recalled. “Viewers can definitely expect to see that chemistry explored a little bit and I think it plays on this new layer of Unique’s vulnerability. I think it’ll be interesting to see what happens between Unique and Raq.”

To give you a refresher, Power Book III: Raising Kanan was created by Sascha Penn. This marks the third spinoff series in the Power franchise. Played by MeKai Curtis, it tells the story of Kanan Stark’s younger years rising in the illicit drug business during the 90s. What a time to be alive. Joey Bada$$ has been in the series as Unique since the beginning of 2021 and was one of the original cast members … Damn. RIP, Unique.
