10 Best KSI Songs

KSI might have started growing his fan base through his dedicated gaming commentary channel on YouTube, but he gave us all a treat with his musical talents. KSI is a chosen acronym standing for Knowledge, Strength, Integrity.

These are my thoughts below on the best KSI songs ever.

1. “No Time” by KSI ft. Lil Durk

Song Year: 2021

“No Time” features a special guest appearance from rapper Lil Durk. The song released in 2021 on KSI's second studio album titled “All Over the Place,” and features a hip hop and trap style.

The song portrays how busy fame has made his life. It talks about how he begins the day being busy when he wakes up. Not only is he busy, but his time is also becoming increasingly important with his fame. He also has to focus on carefully walking the path before him to continue the fame and watch out for those who are just trying to use him.

Not only is his time important and spoken for, but due to the fame he is experiencing, they can afford a newly lavish lifestyle that they can now share with those who are important to him.

2. “Lose” by KSI & Lil Wayne

Song Year: 2021

“Lose” is a song that collaborated with trendy American rap artist Lil Wayne in 2021. “Lose” was released on the studio album “All Over the Place” and gives a Hip/Hop vibe.

This song is a love song based on a complicated and toxic relationship. It talks about how Lil Wayne is a victim of a bad relationship, one where he gets cheated on and mistreated. Even when the toxic partner finally moves on, he has trouble coming to terms with the thoughts of her being with another man.

The song then takes a slight turn and moves into a potential new budding relationship. All in all, the music is about being in love and being “addicted” to someone and unable to shake the feeling even if the connection is not what you thought it would be.

3. “Holiday” by KSI

Song Year: 2021

“Holiday” is featured on the album “All Over the Place .” This song, released in June 2021, changes the usual rap style you will find with KSI and showcases his natural singing talents. The song is a slight folk-style feeling with a pop mix.

The song is titled “Holiday” because that is how KSI feels when he is with his lover. He forgets about the pressures and troubles of his life and finds himself feeling like he is on a magical holiday.

KSI explains this song could also have a double meaning since it was released during the time travel was greatly restricted due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Most people could not travel, so the song could take on the meaning of someone who would like to travel and take a holiday but was unable to do so due to the current traveling situation.

4. “Pull Up” by KSI ft. JME

Song Year: 2019

“Pull Up” is a Hip-Hop and Rap song released in 2019 and is part of the album “New Age .” KSI decided to team up on “Pull Up” and feature musical artist JME for this catchy tune.

The song talks about how he is the boss and should be considered royalty. It details the money he has acquired and how people underestimate him, but in hindsight, they should keep him at the front of their minds.

What is even more impressive than the song itself is the music video that comes along with it. The music video is set like a murder mystery theme in the 1920s in Chicago during prohibition. It comes with a gangster-like feel resembling something along the lines of the mafia.

5. “Patience” by KSI ft YUNGBLUD & Polo G.

Song Year: 2020

“Patience” is a great team collaboration with some famous musical artists, YUNGBLUD & Polo G. The song was released in 2020 on the album “Dissimulation.”

Patience is really about preserving life. It starts with walking through the story about how he has no patience for things in day-to-day life anymore. Instead of slowing down and enjoying, he only goes through all the motions.

In the same breath, he also talks about how it is important to ensure you pick the right partner even in a relationship. Finally, he discusses how a relationship is an area of your life where you need patience the most.

The story then goes on to portray the struggle about how he needs to start taking a few steps back in life and slowing down. Sometimes hate comes our way throughout life, and he purposefully makes decisions to burn bridges that are toxic and negative in his life.

In the end, all he wants to do is enjoy life, enjoy love, and enjoy the things he loves the most. Slowing down to enjoy and having the patience to preserve is rising about the rest.

6. “Don't Play” by KSI ft. Anne-Marie x Digital Farm Animals
