KSI, who became one of the most popular YouTubers on the platform after creating some of the funniest FIFA content we’ve ever seen, started to make moves in the music industry back in 2011.
After initially releasing parody songs alongside his friend and fellow artist Randolph, the 25-year-old brought out his first album, Keep Up, in 2016 which debuted at number 13 in the UK Albums Charts – reaching number one in the UK R&B Album Charts.
KSI’s latest album, New Age, achieved tremendous success on launch and a subsequent tour was announced – the rapper shared crowd footage from his Bournemouth show, but Jake Paul wasn’t impressed.
Paul stated that the video, and the sold out show would be “dope” if the venue wasn’t so small. After not receiving a response, he labelled KSI as a “wasteman”, despite many of his shows actually selling out.

Eventually, the Sidemen member replied to the American with a savage response, taking shots at the demographic of Paul’s audience.
KSI challenged his rival to adopt similar rules to his concerts, which only allow entry to people over the age of 14, insinuating that all of Paul’s audience would be too young to attend.
After a few weeks of silence, the Twitter spat has seemingly reignited the beef between the two YouTubers who have been heavily rumored to be boxing each other in the future.
KSI has actively pursued a fight against the Team 10 Member but a rematch against his older brother, Logan, seems more likely at this point.
