"I snipe with the Arabs, the Parisians flee", can be heard, among other things, in this song that mixes the aesthetic standards of rap with the propaganda codes of Islamic State. "I burn the pages of Charlie Hebdo, I drill holes in the cops at the Gate of Paris" raps SadiQ in German in this song that multiplies references from jihadists, the Gaza Strip to Shâm (Syria), Guantanamo to the "love" of death. 
SadiQ is not unknown across the Rhine. Born in Kabul in 1988, Sadiq Zadrande, his real name, arrived in Germany aged 6. His first album came out in 2012 on the label Halunkenbande, which has nurtured many other German [sic] rappers such as Baba Saad or Dù Maroc.

UPDATE: It looks like he has made his video private, presumably out of fear of prosecution. I'll repost it if it surfaces again.
