KSI releases long-awaited diss track, Quadeca gives lukewarm response

One of YouTube’s biggest rivalries just turned up the heat with the release of Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji’s newest diss track called ‘Ares.’

After both ‘Quadeca’ and ‘Dax’ dropped a pair of viral diss tracks over the last couple weeks, fans have been anxiously awaiting an official response from KSI.

While he did do a reaction video on November 27, it wasn’t until December 4 that fans got a true response in the form of a brand-new diss track from KSI.

The track was first teased by KSI on December 3 with a cryptic Tweet containing a picture of a crown and cape.

It all became clear once he dropped the track on his YouTube channel, as he wore the getup throughout the entire video while proclaiming himself as the “King of the Drama.”

KSI doesn’t hold anything back in the video, mainly seeming to think he’s on a higher level than both Quadeca and Dax. A common theme throughout the track is that neither rapper was anything before they entered a feud with him.

At one point, KSI even alludes to Quadeca’s breakup with his ex-girlfriend, saying “Where is your Isabella? Shorty left and you’ve struggled to hold it all together.

While KSI certainly pulled no punches in the video spectacle, Quadeca doesn’t seem to be very impressed with the track, laughing it off in a Tweet posted after it dropped.

Given there is still plenty to be said and tons of bad blood between the YouTubers, this more than likely won’t be the last we hear of this beef.


Stormzy drops ‘Rainfall’ music video in Watch Dogs, and it actually slaps

Stormzy has officially made his Watch Dogs Legion debut with the release of his ‘Rainfall’ music video, which was filmed entirely inside Ubisoft’s upcoming trilogy sequel and if we’re being honest, the whole thing is kind of awesome.

Every day another celebrity seems to find their way into the digital world. This year, Ninja and Aussie Twitch streamer Loserfruit were both added to Fortnite. Then, just last month, Dr Disrespect had a unique variant skin and themed ‘Arena’ map he designed released in Rogue Company.

Now it’s British grime rapper Stormzy’s turn, in Watch Dogs: Legion.

The rapper, 27, released a music video for his new single “Rainfall” on Thursday, Oct. 22, with a bit of a twist ⁠— the entire clip was filmed in Ubisoft’s upcoming sequel.

A digital Stormzy first appeared in a virtual studio, singing his new single. The scenery soon changed, however, and he was transported ⁠— all in-game ⁠— to the rooftops of London, where the new Watch Dogs sequel will mainly be taking place.

Here’s the new music video, featuring Tiana Major9, in all its glory.

This isn’t the only time Stormzy will be appearing in Watch Dogs Legion either. When the full Legion title drops on Oct. 29, players will get the chance to team-up with the grime rapper, or at least a virtual version of him, for an exclusive side-quest.

The mission, “Fall on My Enemies,” is a reference to Stomrzy’s lyrics in ‘Rainfall.’ 

When accepted, players will be tasked with “protecting the broadcast of the music video across the entire city.” Ubisoft has yet to confirm how long the mission will be, or whether it has any major bearing on the main Watch Dogs storyline.

Stormzy first revealed his collaboration back in September. He said, “You lot are about to have your minds blown. What [Ubisoft] have done in terms of recreating London is one of the most insane, epic, incredible things I’ve ever seen.”

Stormzy 'filmed' his entire Rainfall music video inside Watch Dogs: Legion.

The Watch Dogs devs said they were “thrilled” to have Stormzy onboard. “His music and what he speaks to as an artist is extremely relevant for our London setting, and for the larger themes of our game. He lit up the room… it was a career highlight for us to get to work with him.”

Ubisoft has confirmed the exclusive Stormzy Rainfall mission will be available from day one in Watch Dogs Legion, and will require no additional DLC patches to play.

The Watch Dogs trilogy sequel will be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Google Stadia on Thursday, October 29. The title will also be ported to Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 when the next-gen consoles are released in late 2020.
