Fued 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 August 2019, 27 million views. 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.
