Central Cee Drops Surprise ‘No More Leaks’ EP, Leads With “One Up” Video
For artists today, especially those with a profile as big as Central Cee’s, the fight against leaker culture is an ongoing one and, frankly, must be pretty exhausting.
Tempted by the spectre of online clout, however fleeting, any time Cench finishes a track, or even gets close to finishing a track, there’s always that chance it’ll find its way out into the world and take the momentum out of any hype he’s trying to build. Understandably frustrated, he just dropped a surprise new EP to beat the leakers to the finishing line.
Fittingly titled No More Leaks, the new project dropped late last night alongside visuals for lead single “One Up”, a song he shared a snippet of last month with the words: “[I’m] only dropping this cos they leaked it.”
Cench’s long-time collaborator, Young Chencs, is of course involved—he produced two of the tracks, “Bumpy Johnson” and “Crypto Price”—with the other two beats coming from Lekka and SHK.
It’s been a wild year for Central Cee already, kicking off with the 23 tape going No. 1 in January, dropping the massive viral freestyle for LA Leakers and scoring a massive hit with “Doja”. Now, as the year’s drawing to a close, he’s wrapping up with a win over the leakers with this EP, and at the end of the month he heads out on tour across Europe and North America—tickets for which will no doubt be gold dust.
