Feud with KSI
Quadeca was called out along with Dax by KSI where KSI said that they were both trash rappers. Quadeca then responded to this with a reaction and then a full-length disstrack titled “Insecure” which is his most popular song to date with as of February 2020, 31 million views. It was received extremely well by most audiences, however, KSI stated that it was an "Okay" diss track. KSI would then respond with "Ares" which as of August 2019 has 13 million views. It received not too well reviews and Quadeca said that it wasn’t worth responding to. To squash the beef, Quadeca challenged KSI to a FIFA game where Quadeca also won that and overall won the beef.
On January 25, 2020, Prettyboyfredo uploaded a video stealing Quadeca's series without giving any credit towards Quadeca. Quadeca would then call Fredo a "hoe" on Twitter which would then cause angry tweets between the two for a while. Fredo put out a screenshot of messages between him and Sad Frosty and asking to collaborate using this as a comeback at Quadeca though it had nothing to do with the beef. Moxas, Crypt, DuaneTV, Sad Frosty have all addressed they are on Quadeca's side. Quadeca mentioned that he was feeding Prettyboyfredo's family with Quadeca's content except the worse and fake version. Fredo would then respond with 3 tweets physically threatening Quad. There are rumors spreading that diss tracks will be released.
