Quadeca's diss track
On December 1, 2018, Roman uploaded a video titled "The Quadeca KSI Diss Track is FAKE" in which he gives reasons as to why the beef was staged and also called Quadeca's diss track "trash". The video received negative reception and Quadeca himself responded by commenting on the video which said "The "beef" between me and JJ isn't fake. It's not that deep but it's also not contrived. I've never spoken to JJ in my life in any form. I just saw his podcast where he was talking a bunch of shit and made the song as a response. Though he may have wanted the big controversy all along, and I just played into his scheme, but I never spoke to him or anybody behind the scenes. The reason I didn't try and "ruin his career" in my diss track is because he wasn't going in on anything personal for me, he was just talking about music and content. I thought that would have looked stupid as fuck if he was like "I think your music is trash" and I reply with "You have 12 kids and are addicted to crack" u feel me. I think he was planning on ignoring my diss track and just focusing on the Randolph Deji shit, cause he didn't react to me for a while, and pretended he didn't know who I was, but it got so big that he saw he could turn it into a good clout opportunity so i guess that's what we doing now. So in conclusion it's not fake but it's not that deep u get me. At least that's how it seems from my perspective. idk about the Randolph and Deji one tho lmaooo"
