Rabat – Mohamed Salah is getting his own musical tribute. La Fouine has released a new track called “Mohammed Salah” in homage to Liverpool’s superstar.
French-Moroccan rapper La Fouine has been busy teasing a new album through his social media. Earlier this week, the native of Casablanca announced that he will soon share a very special track by displaying a screenshot of the video clip on Instagram.
Thursday La Fouine once again proved his love and commitment for soccer, especially African soccer, when he posted a music video for Salah, where he raps in French.
After dedicating two of his songs to soccer stars Didier Drogba and Pierre-Emerick Aubamayang, the 36-year-old artist is now supporting Egyptian player Salah who will play against Real Madrid in the Champion’s League final game.
The new song is the fifth track La Fouine has released from his “Rien à prouver” (Nothing to Prove) album, a freestyle series that follows his mixtape “Capital du Crime Censuré” (Capital of Censored Crime).
Besides his musical career, “Fouiny Baby” is currently shooting a Moroccan movie alongside Oliver Stone’s son. The Moroccan rapper scored one of the main roles in “Night Walk,” a movie directed by Aziz Tazi and produced by Mustapaha Mellouk , according to le360.ma.
La Fouine, whose real name is Laouni Mouhid, was born to Moroccan parents in 1981 in Trappes, France.
His career had a difficult start at the age of 14, when he sacrificed his education to start rapping. In 2003, he introduced himself as a freestyle rapper with his first mixtape.
With over 100 songs and 14 albums in his repertoire, La Fouine is one of the top rappers in France. He was awarded the MTV Europe music award for best French act in 2013.
