KSI shows how he “fell out of the sky” in music video with Rick Ross

YouTube star KSI may be known for his infamous beef with rival Logan Paul, but there’s more to the Brit than his boxing career, thanks to his hustle in the music industry.

Before their boxing rematch on November 9, KSI dropped his latest track “Down Like That,” featuring such names as Rick Ross, S-X, and Lil Baby.

Rick Ross and S-X performed the song in the ring during KSI’s walkout at the rematch, providing the ultimate flex on Logan Paul – but that wasn’t the end of the song’s lifetime, by far.

KSI later uploaded a music video for the track on November 22, which showed the YouTuber falling from the sky, as seen in the song’s cover art in a shocking special effect.

The eldest Olajidebt brother explained the visual during a special behind-the-scenes segment uploaded on November 26, which showed the “movie magic” behind the falling sequence.

The YouTuber was strung up on wires in front of a blue screen and an oscillating fan, where the sequence was filmed and dropped down on a mat for his dramatic “crash” into the pavement.

While impressive, he admitted that the scene was a killer core workout, as he had to balance himself while upside down on the ropes throughout the sequence.

“We just finished filming the hanging scene,” KSI said in the video, laughing. “It f***ing sucked. Core exercise a few days after a fight. Probably not the best thing, but yo, you know what we do. Gotta make sure everything’s on point!”

KSI’s “Down Like That” has already achieved massive success, garnering over 11 million views on YouTube and even gaining a potential spot in the Top 10 of the official UK music charts.

This wouldn’t be the first time he’s tampered in special effects, either: in fact, the YouTuber was part of a similar getup in a video in September 2018, where he was lifted inside the sprawling staircase in his home.

With “Down Like That” performing well, there’s no telling where KSI’s music career will take him, boasting an already impressive list of songs, including tracks like “Beerus” and “Real Name.”

Tyler1 amazes Smash Ultimate pros after battling MkLeo on Twitch

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
