Jake Paul exposes KSI’s “lying” DMs before AnEsonGib fight

YouTube star Jake Paul may be scheduled to fight AnEsonGib on January 30, but he’s got his eyes set on KSI, who he believes is lying about the huge features in his song “Down Like That.”

KSI debuted his song “Down Like That” just ahead of his November 9 rematch against Logan Paul, which he won by split-decision from the judges, thanks to a two-point deduction from Paul in the fourth round.

His hit track features such rap greats as Rick Ross and Lil Baby — two artists Jake Paul alleges his rival paid a whopping $400k to appear on the song, citing purported emails from the British YouTuber to an “artist friend” of his.

However, KSI refuted this allegation in a series of heated messages via Instagram, claiming that he didn’t pay for either of the rappers to help with the track (although their performance at the fight wasn’t mentioned).

“These artists don’t do s**t for free,” Jake argued. “That’s not how the music industry works. So, first of all, this guy’s a liar, like I said. A lot of the UK influencers straight up lie all the time, and it just p*sses me off.”

The Team 10 founder also called out KSI for claiming that his brother “f**ks you up in sparring,” retorting that he and Logan have never sparred together in their bid to become fighting pros.

“He’s like a dog in a corner, like fighting with terrible information and just lies,” Jake continued. “Me and my brother have never sparred. Never in our lives, not for one second. …clearly he’s pulling information out of his a**.”

According to Jake, he and older brother Logan Paul have never sparred against each other in their bid to become professional fighters.

Jake Paul’s heated exchange with KSI follows the Sidemen member’s own jab toward Paul just a day prior, calling him “washed up” and claiming that he “needs” to win his fight against Gib to maintain his social media “clout.”

Thus far, KSI has yet to respond to Paul’s “exposure” of their Instagram conversations in a beef that could add yet another chapter to the already explosive Paul vs KSI feud.

Like most popular streamers, Shroud has been getting stuck into the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands grind, but although he’s enjoyed it so far, he said he feels like the game is “less immersive” than it used to be.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has taken the world by storm ever since it launched on November 23. Players have been hopping back into Azeroth to take the reigns of their characters once again.

Popular streamers like Mike ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek have been getting stuck into the grind too. He’s been very open about how much he loves the game and has streamed hours upon hours of World of Warcraft Classic. He even said he was willing to lose viewers to stream it.

Shroud has thoroughly enjoyed playing World of Warcraft for many years now.

However, Shroud isn’t blinded by his love and adoration for the game. He still has some criticism for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands and MMORPGs in general, and he mentioned them in his latest stream.

“I feel like [MMORPG’s] and WoW, in general, have transcended into something completely different,” he said. “In the past, you [played] because you were immersed. You were leveling up your character. You were getting new items. It felt good to be more powerful and do better things.”

“Now I feel like WoW is like play with friends and kill some shit,” he said. “That feeling of immersion and truly having an impact on the world and your character feeling there has kind of nullified.”

“When I played vanilla WoW in 2005, I was 11 years old, and it felt amazing,” he said. “It felt incredible. It felt like I was in my own realm. I was in my own world. Now it doesn’t feel like that. That feeling is gone.

The relevant part of the video starts at 2:00.

It’s a sentiment that others have echoed time and time again. The consensus is that MMORPGs have been streamlined throughout the years.

However, it hasn’t stopped millions of players, including Shroud, from enjoying World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. 

Plus, despite his criticism, he thinks now is the “best time” for new players to start playing the game because the new leveling process is “really cool.”
