Central Cee on Fame

Central Cee’s perspective on fame is refreshingly grounded. As he puts it, “What’s to fantasize about now? You’re either famous or you’re super rich and you’re insensitive to the value of money.

Money don’t excite these people, and fame don’t excite me.” These words illustrate the rapper’s humility and his refusal to be seduced by the trappings of success.
