This comes after a string of highly publicised singles which featured some very high profile artists. ‘Dissimulation’ is his first album as a solo artist as he has released albums featuring fellow YouTuber Randolph.
Somewhat surprisingly the album carries on the trend of having high profile features by including unheard verses from Jeremih and more notably Migos’ very own Offset. This is the latest in KSI’s ventures as he has previously been seen turning his hand to boxing, podcasts and films.
To coincide with the release of his album today, he has also dropped a new music video for ‘Cap’ which features Offset. Watch the video below;
On Twitter his YouTube compagnions have also been very vocal in trying to get his album to the number 1 spot. Right now it currently sits in second place in the iTunes charts. The high placing will be, in no doubt, helped by his combined 30 million subscribers who follow his endeavours religiously.
Earlier today he also appeared on Lorraine to promote his album which caused people to talk but maybe not for the reasons you would have expected. Instead of talking about his album, people picked up on how messy his room was. Check out the interview below;

KSI is not the only YouTuber to venture into the music business as Joji, formally known as Filthy Frank, has made a very successful career since changing. Recently his fans have found out about the controversial topics he used to make videos about and this has caused some outrage on social media.
Without a doubt KSI will be extremely disappointed that he will not be able to play the festival dates he had lined up for this year, as it was shaping up to be a big year for him following the release of his debut album and coming off the back of his two fights.
Love him or loathe him, you can not deny that he has absolutely smashed it in making his way through YouTube and looking to get into different businesses. Here’s to a bright future.
