AUGUST UPDATE: CENTRAL CEE HAS ANNOUNCED ONE SHOW AT ALEXANDRA PALACE IN LONDON! TICKETS FOR THIS SINGLE SHOW ARE EXPECTED TO SELL OUT FAST!
Shepherd’s Bush rapper Central Cee, aka Cench, released his debut mixtape Wild West last March, and has already bagged two MOBOs, three Brit nominations, three UK top 10 singles and over 800m global streams. However, his success didn’t happen overnight.
Heavily influenced by his dad’s reggae, hip-hop and dancehall record collection, he made his grime debut back in 2017 with the slow-paced, auto-tune-heavy ‘Over You’ and has since showed his versatility with a move towards UK drill. Though not completely dropping the melodic grime-esque flow sensibilities, his focus now rests on concise, straight-talking lyricism circling the social issues facing those around him.
