It’s hard to imagine a more precipitous rise to the echelons of rap domination as that which Oakley Neil H T Caesar-Su has found himself on. As Central Cee, the 24-year-old has gone from dropping freestyles to helming some of the biggest hits the industry has seen in recent years. Most recently, ubiquitous juggernaut “Doja” has permeated all corners of TikTok, earned him a UK number two, and attracted over 250 million Spotify streams.

Such fervent fandom emanates in the rapture that ripples through Alexandra Palace throughout the star’s homecoming performance. “The Fully Loaded” World Tour has taken him across the US, Europe and even Austrailia, but its his final date in London that proves the most poignant.

Cataloguing his tick-sheet of triumphs, his set explores all avenues of mixtape “23”, balancing introspection with all-out crowdpleasers. The tension of “Little Bro”, comprising Central Cee’s stern but avuncular dialogue with his little brother comes to life as said younger brother steps out on stage to perform the cut alongside him. The downtempo “Mrs” sees him ruminative alongside the 10,000-strong crowd, who are as encapsulated in such moments as the astronomical proportions of the more buoyant numbers. Of which, there are few that engulf them like the pinkpantheress-sampling “Obsessed With You”. That’s until victory lap, aka, his signature spectacle, “Doja” erupts across the venue – its reception, an emblem of just what it means to be at the top of one’s game.

As he parts, Central Cee promises even more hits the next time he graces the stage. Only a fool would doubt him for a second.
