Central Cee was born in London in 1998 and started recording music at the age of 14. Within a decade, he has become the most famous British rapper, with over 8 million followers and more than 2 billion streams. His debut mixtape, Wild West, was an artistic and commercial triumph. Wild West became the highest-selling British debut album of 2021 with two Top 10 UK singles, and Central Cee was nominated for three Brit Awards and won two GRM Daily Awards for Best Male Artist and Breakthrough Artist of the Year. 2021 ended on a high note, as his UK headline tour sold out in just two minutes.
Early the next year, in February 2022, he released his second mixtape, 23, which went straight to No. 1 on the UK Official Chart and made clear that Central Cee now defines British hip-hop on his own terms. His introspection and social commentary, alongside innovative production, have already established him as one of the most exceptional musicians of his generation.
In 2023, he will embark on a massive world tour, with performances at all the major festivals in Europe (Primavera Sound, Reading, Glastonbury). We can’t wait to welcome him to the SNFCC’s Great Lawn and enjoy one of the greatest talents of modern hip-hop at the perfect moment.
