Oakley Caesar-Su was born on June 4th, 1998, in Shepherd’s Bush, London, England. He was raised in Shepherd’s Bush by a single mother along with three younger brothers. One of his brothers named Juke Caesar was featured in his 2022 mixtape “23.”
As a kid, Central often would get to spend his weekends with his father that’s when he picked up his preference for a vast range of classic American rap artists like Tupac, and many others. His love for this foundational rap artist led him to make his own beats at the young age of 8 years old.
As a teenager, Central Cee began recording his music which helped him to learn about the different forms including dancehall, reggae, and Soca. He then spent his free time mixing these techniques together into his own unique sound.
At the age of 15 Central Cee realized that he was going to make it in this business when he stepped inside a recording studio for the first time. During high school, one of his friends brought him into a music studio so he could make music.
In 2013 Central Cee went to a professional music studio for the very first time and from that point on his goals changed forever. Around that time he had even picked himself a gig, working as a sales clerk at a local shoe store. His job didn’t last long and he quit after realizing that it wouldn’t be his career.
Since then music became his only focus and he started uploading songs. However, his early music is not available on the internet. At this earliest point of his career, Central was using a different sound in singing in a husky voice through autotune to emulate the trap wave style of other UK artists.
In 2014 he got a chance to appear in an episode of the series “In The Streets” which is now deleted. That’s when he adopted the new moniker of Central C. In the following year he was featured on the track “Ain’t On Nuttin Remix” featuring Bonkaz, and J Hus.
In February 2015 Central Cee dropped his “StreetHeat Freestyle.” Then in August 2016 his song “Pull Up” came out. From there the rapper began recording his debut EP “17” which was released in 2017. That same year his extended play “Nostalgia” but it’s not available as of now.
In October 2019 Central Cee dropped his “Next Up” freestyle along with several other tracks. The turning point of his career came when his now manager YBeeez entered his life around 2019. Before this, YBeeez had been flicking through Instagram looking for potential artists to help mentor.
Along with YBeeez’s support, Central Cee posted a clip to social media of himself freestyling in the back of a car. By March 2020 Central had backed up off the auto-tune and husky singing voice. This clip had racked up over a million views and Central gained over 30,000 followers on Instagram in a couple of weeks.
In June 2020 Central Cee teamed up with YBeeez to release his breakout single “Day in the Life”. The track went on to peak at the 44 spot on the UK’s Singles Chart. In March 2021 he released another big hit project “Wild West” featuring hit singles like “Day in the Life” and “Loading”.
The mixtape “Wild West” climbed to the upper reaches of the UK Album charts falling only one short of the top spot. Soon afterward the accolades began to roll in. Central won the GRM Daily Rated Award for Breakthrough Artist of the Year and Male Artist of the Year as well as several nominations.
After establishing himself and generating a ton of momentum, Central announced that his newest mixtape “23” will be released in February 2022. This mixtape contains more hit tracks including “Obsessed with You” which peaked at number 4 on UK Singles chart.
In 2023 the rapper released a new single “Me & You” which amassed over 2 million views within two weeks of its release. Outside of music, he also tried his hand at other ventures like modeling for Drake’s Nike X Nocta collection.
