Cee Major, twenty-one year old rapper from East London. Cee has built a reputation for himself in UK Rap Battle league “Don’t Flop” making his début in 2012, claiming the 2v2 doubles title on the way at the Ministry of Sound in June 2013. He recently battled at the Don’t Flop 6th Birthday event in which Cee battled American Chilla Jones. However his most recent battle was for Episode 1 of Tim Westwood’s “Crib Clashes”
In the first half of 2014 Cee released freestyles for every major online channel, including Charlie Sloth’s Fire in the Streets, SBTV, Link Up TV, JDZ Media, and Don’t Flop Drops building a reputation as one of the most skilful and intricate lyricists in the country.
With over 2.5 million YouTube views to his name the release of his debut EP “Humble Beginnings” was eagerly anticipated by not only the battle rap community the world over, but the “Hip Hop Heads” who also recognise Cee to be one of very few “battle rappers” to be able to make the transition to recorded material, mainly displayed through his freestyles for online channels. This was shown to be the case when his free EP became the “top selling” hip hop release of the month on Bandcamp, through donations alone.
The EP received a lot of support from both radio and television. Both the “Lost Souls” and the “East London 2″ music videos received air time on Flava TV & Channel AKA, and every track from the EP was played on radio.
Cee’s second EP, “The Format” was released on new years day 2015, and firmly establishes him as one of the the UK scenes brightest talents and a name that holds weight in both the battle and music scenes here in the UK and internationally. With no features to speak of, and all production from Outhouse Entertainment producer Phocus Beats, this EP was very much an in house project.
Cee is currently writing and recording new material and is scheduled for a release in the second half of 2015, in which you can expect to see him collaborate with a few familiar faces….
