YouTube superstar, Olajide ‘KSI’ Olatunji, wasn’t interested in sharing niceties with rival star Jake Paul, after the American praised the Sidemen member following the release of his new album. 

KSI launches new studio album

After becoming one of the most popular YouTubers by creating some of the best FIFA content we’ve ever seen, KSI continues to evolve as a creator – delving into both the world of music and boxing over the past few years.

With boxing on the backseat for the moment, the 25-year-old has released his next album, New Age, which has enjoyed rapid growth on the likes of iTunes and Spotify without even being released in the United States.

Jake Paul offers respect to KSI

Despite the early success, KSI tweeted out that anyone on YouTube could use the music from his album without the risk of being hit with a copyright strike – something which is rarely seen from artists – and his decision has been widely praised.

Jake Paul was quick to do the same and commended the move, before hinting that he would follow suit in the future on his future music ventures.

He tweeted: “I’m going to do this too, I’m tired of artists being greedy, it’s time for change. Respect bro.”

KSI’s brutal response to Jake Paul

Despite Paul praising the move, KSI had no intentions of sharing the sentiment and ensured the rivalry between the pair continued with a savage response.

The tweet continues the beef between KSI and the Paul brothers – the Brit has been actively seeking a boxing match with Jake after drawing against his older brother Logan back in August.

Jake has insisted that KSI must rematch Logan first, but this latest drama makes a matchup between the pair seem like a formality in the future.

Smash Melee star Ludwig Ahgren sent a Pokemon card Twitch stream into a meltdown when he pulled a 1st Edition Dragonite worth up to $10k. The gaming pro scored the rare collectible after streamer Trainwreckstv gave him the pack.

Pokemon cards have taken over platforms such as YouTube and Twitch as viewers flock to see their favorite personalities chase after the rarest Nintendo collectibles.

A live Trading Card Game box opening hosted by streamer Mizkif and his org One True King went off the rails on November 22 when Smash pro Ludwig scored a rare Dragonite that could have been Trainwrecks’.

Ludwig scores rare Pokemon card from 1999

The Pokemon TCG has seen a major explosion in value in 2020. Cards once traded for nothing on school playgrounds decades ago can now sell for as much as a house. The hobby has also become a major hit on sites like Twitch, with streamers buying sealed booster boxes from the 90s to open live for viewers.

On November 22, Twitch star Mizkif broke open 1st Edition sealed packs from the 1999 Fossil set. Those attending the event lost their minds when pro gamer Ludwig scored a 1st Edition Dragonite after streamer Trainwreckstv gave his pack to him.

The moment went viral due to the Twitch personality’s generosity backfiring. “Dude I swear to God if I said no to this pack to be fair and nice and its a good pack I want it back. Ludgwig, if this is good it’s my pack. If it’s bad, it’s your pack,” he exclaimed moments before the card was pulled. Unfortunately, the booster he passed on contained the exact rare holographic he was chasing after.

After the excitement settled, the group felt bad for Train’s incredibly bad luck. Although the popular Twitch star wasn’t too bitter about it, laughing it off on Twitter. If nothing else, he should be applauded for his generosity.

According to recent sales of the item, a 1st Edition Dragonite can sell anywhere from $8k to 9.7k depending on the grading. Luckily for Ludwig, the item looked incredibly pristine, giving him a good chance at a PSA 10 grading.
