He might have been around for longer than people think, but the latest embodiment of Central Cee was arguably one of the biggest breakthrough acts of 2021. One track heavier than Wild West, Central Cee's 23 is the next stage in his smoothing of the gritty UK drill tradition, bridging culture, class, countries and running rampant on every online social platform available. An immortalised number in competitive sport as well as Cee's age, 23 aims to surpass any expectations (or criticism) for this young talent from West London.
West London's premier lyricist, Central Cee's meteoric rise has been one of the biggest success stories of the 2020's. From being a nominee for best new artist at the BRITs this year, to countless hits and show-stopping features, it's fair to say Cench is at the peak of his powers in the UK rap scene. Although released only two years ago, it seems like a lifetime Cench's breakout hit 'Loading' was blaring over our TikTok for your pages; since then Cench has seemed to have perfected his craft bringing a new spin to the drill genre.
