Album: The Wild West (2020)
Charted: 19

Songfacts®:

  • Hailing from Ladbroke Grove (West London), Central Cee's passion for music came from his dad's old-school hip-hop collection. The young rapper was soon generating heat with his tracks and freestyles, which typically incorporate a jumpy drill vibe. "Loading," released on October 22, 2020, is his breakthrough hit.
  • Over a soft saxophone melody, Central Cee raps about his come-up, the criminal activity in his hood, and desire to get married. The rhymer has no desire to live a gangsta lifestyle as he's now "loading" (making plenty of money) from his music.
  • Hargo supplies the nostalgic, brass-driven beat. His other productions include M24 X Stickz' "We Don't Dance" and OG Buda's "Traffic."
