Oakley Neil H T Caesar-Su (born 4 June 1998), known professionally as Central Cee, is a British rapper and songwriter from Shepherd's Bush, London. He saw success in 2020 with the release of the singles "Day in the Life" and "Loading". His first mixtape Wild West was released on 12 March 2021, which debuted at number two on the UK Albums Chart. His second mixtape 23 was released on 25 February 2022 and debuted atop the UK Albums Chart.

Oakley Neil H T Caesar-Su was born on 4 June 1998 in Shepherd's Bush, London to an Irish mother and a Guyanese father being from Biblian Ecuador descent, with Caeser-Su's great-grandfather being Arawak. Growing up, his father would play hip-hop, reggae, and dancehall music around him. Caesar-Su has stated that he kept to himself in school, but would occasionally misbehave and lose his temper. He went to the same school as rapper Digga D, being a couple of school years higher. Caesar-Su began recording music when he was 14. Caesar-Su worked at a shoe store for three weeks before finding out his wage and quitting.

Caesar-Su first appeared on the "Ain't On Nuttin Remix" alongside J Hus, Bonkaz, and more in January 2015, where he adopted the rapper name "Central Cee" (first listed as Central C). He released his "StreetHeat Freestyle" in February of the same year. He later released the single "Pull Up" in August 2016. Central Cee released his first project, the EP 17, in 2017. His "Next Up?" freestyle was released in October 2019.

Caesar-Su met his future manager YBeeez in 2019, who encouraged him to pursue music further. After switching from auto-tuned hip hop to a style similar to UK drill, Central Cee released his breakout single "Day in the Life" on 14 June 2020. He followed it up with "Loading", released on 22 October 2020. The music videos for both tracks were released by GRM Daily. "Loading" and "Commitment Issues" both reached the top 20 of the UK Singles Chart. Central Cee self-released his debut mixtape Wild West in March 2021, which debuted at number two on the UK Albums Chart and number one on the UK R&B Albums Chart.

In September 2021, the single "Obsessed with You" reached number 4 on the UK Singles Chart, which would become the lead single from his second mixtape, 23, announced in November 2021. Central Cee's Daily Duppy was released on Christmas of 2021. The second and third singles from the mixtape, "Retail Therapy" and "Cold Shoulder", were released on 6 January and 27 January 2022.
On 25 February 2022, 23 was released.
Following previews at concerts and on social media, his single �Doja� released on 21 July 2022 alongside a music video directed by Cole Bennett. It became his highest charting song of his career, debuting at number 2 on the UK Singles Chart. The song also reached number 13 on the US Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart.
