‘Dissimulation’ is the debut album by KSI, featuring appearances from Offset, Lil Pump Smokepurpp, Swarmz and Rick Ross. Better known for his mildly hilarious but mostly annoying YouTube videos and mediocre ‘boxing’ career, KSI makes his attempt at putting a dent in the rap scene.
Once you get past the fact that you are listening to a YouTuber, it isn’t that bad. In truth, it is lifted by the heavy weight features – but some might be shocked by KSI’s ability on the mic. ‘What You Been On’ is the first song on the album, a boastful track hitting out at the much-maligned internet personalities critics. The lead single ‘Cap’ features Migos’ Offset and it address those that deceived him and how he always bounces back.
The album is accompanied by some excellent visuals, with Houdini showcasing KSI’s creative eye. For a first album and for someone who hasn’t yet made a mark on the music scene, ‘Dissimulation’ is an excellent body of work.
