While fans of the personality might be more excited for his next boxing match with Logan Paul, KSI should spent less time in the ring and more time behind the mic if this album is anything to go by.

The Observer
The aim here is not just to make “YouTube rap” but the real thing. Mission accomplished.
The Needle Drop
While KSI surpasses most of his YouTube peers-gone-rappers, he doesn't yet stand out in the current hip hop landscape
This gave me a good laugh, was fun live streaming my reaction. Production is meh, KSI’s flow is decent, his voice is a good rap voice, but KSI is pure butt cheeks lyrically. Overall half decent, half ironically enjoyable
Like his discography, Dissimulation is yet another example of a rap album that pulls the genre down, like a real regression.

I encourage every artist to want to create what they want, now that it's possible for everyone to make music, but in the end there are limits to it all. As a lover of "Hip Hop", I'm starting to feel so much frustration that turns to anger when I see that artists continue to feed our listening with such uninspired entertainment. Usually I tend to always rely on ... read more
Uh, it's.. listenable?

Firstly, I'm very happy for the dude because he did what he wanted to do and officially got his big commercial debut out, and also because I think he has achieved what he -or us anyway- expected, and that's a "compilation" of some sort that blends in with any number of playlists like a generic mainstream rapper would.

KSI does show a lot of promise as an artist, especially as this album's a step up from the awful Keep Up and his... so-so diss tracks. Yeah, that brief era of UK YouTubers and diss tracks in 2017-2018 was a bit strange, despite how entertaining it was. He shows a lot of versatility... but, wait. Is it even versatility? He keeps the same tone throughout all the songs but he can't seem to choose a lane for himself. You've got the very grime-heavy tracks, minimal trap rap tracks, auto-crooning ... read more
lol I like it when people are like He's good because other you tube rappers are bad, like that makes his music automatically great or even good. Here is the thing with Ksi, he clearly wants to be taken as a serious rapper but I just can't when his songs are treated with so little originality or care. I get it you like Rap that's cool but I just don't think he is a good rapper. The production and features make it sound professional but Ksi himself makes it sound so bland and life less it makes ... read more
