Central Cee drops surprise EP ‘No More Leaks,’ shares video for ‘One Up’

Central Cee is unstoppable. The West London superstar has dropped a surprise EP titled ‘No More Leaks,’ complete with a Suave-directed visual for the third track on the release ‘One Up,’ a song that Cench shared a snippet of back in September. “[I’m] only dropping this cos they leaked it.”

The video for ‘One Up’ sits on a newly created Live Yours channel – the YouTube home of Central Cee’s record label, of the same name, which will highlight different musical artists from across the globe.

‘No More Leaks’ opens with the raw, open, and honest ‘Chapters,’ a freestyle on which Cench continues to own a sound and style entirely his own, by meshing together his own personal experiences with his ongoing journey. “They think that I came up quick, they don’t know ‘bout the rest of the chapters.” It’s a moment of reflection, of gratitude; but also of power: “I had a big dream from young, some shit that I’ve done I couldn’t imagine.”

An inimitable lyricist with an instantly recognizable vocal, Cench reveals how far he’s come “The show that I done today, is more than my parent’s life savings.” Constantly growing and learning through his craft, Central Cee’s music has allowed him to travel the globe: “I thought that my life was hard till I went to the orphanage in Lagos,” he explains, reflecting on his first trip to Nigeria, where he played to a packed out stage at Homecoming in Lagos; touched by the enormous and engaged fan response so far away from home.

The EP continues with the aptly named ‘Bumpy Johnson,’ on which Cench touches on his global success and incomparable journey, as well and his focus on making connections and collaborations across Europe: “made a French connection, see the blue print working, now they go Paris as well.” A note to his fellow artists that it’s impossible to recreate his path. His journey is of his design – live yours, not mine.
