A pugnacious debut.
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.
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.
With Dissimulation, however, here is proof that KSI has grown as an artist, adding much more depth to his lyrics as well as expertise in how he executes the different rap styles. His flow and cadence are much better, and he’s meshing nicely with all of the different artists that are featured.
Musa Reviews Music
Dissimulation lies in the vast realm of generic trap and pop-rap music that lacks personality but has the potential to dominate the airwaves.
