After being roasted by brothers Jake and Logan Paul on Logan’s Impaulsive podcast, KSI has hit back, calling out Jake’s “trash” music and laughing off Logan’s claims that Impaulsive is “the number one podcast in the world.”

KSI has had a long-running feud with the Paul brothers, with a positive boxing record against Logan and a highly-anticipated future matchup in the works with Jake.

More recently, though, music has been the main source of discussion surrounding these artists, with KSI releasing his first EP and a bunch of singles, followed by Jake releasing recent track ‘Fresh Outta London’.

KSI has seen a fair amount of commercial success with his music, especially in the UK.

After KSI accused Jake of having a ghostwriter, the younger Paul brother denied the claims and, soon after, went on the Impaulsive podcast, where the music and beef between the two played a focal point in discussions.

It’s fair to say that the Pauls didn’t have a particularly positive outlook on KSI’s most recent single, Lighter, which is currently his highest-charting song yet, saying that while it’s a good track, his verse “sucks,” with Logan saying he “took a step back” with Lighter.

They also questioned his lyricism as well as how much success he’s really seeing with his musical efforts and, as expected, KSI didn’t take it kindly.

After the brothers accused KSI of having “hundreds of writers” on his songs, the Brit simply explained his writing process — including writing everything himself — and pulled apart Jake, Logan, and their work.

He kicks off the video addressing Logan’s claims that Impaulsive is the “number one podcast in the world,” looking at where it stands on the iTunes and Spotify UK charts (uncharted and 47th respectively), before explaining his lyrics and why they actually showcase his lyricism.

Amid calling Jake’s music trash, accusing him of having ghostwriters and questioning his life decisions, KSI turns his attention to Logan and Impaulsive co-host Mike Majlak, too.

“It’s such a shame,” he says. “Whenever Mike and Logan are together, especially on Impaulsive, it’s actually somewhat watchable. But then as soon as Jake arrives… Logan just drops down to Jake’s level and becomes as stupid as him.”

KSI then pulls up a number of comments on the video, suggesting a very similar line of thinking: that Jake’s presence is a negative on what Logan says and how he acts.

Obviously this feud isn’t dying down any time soon, but their fight may have to be put on hold after Jake’s Calabasas home was raided by the FBI on August 5.


Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
