German Rapper (Massiv) films latest music video in Qatar

This is pretty cool. Popular German Rap Star Massiv decided to film his latest music video in Qatar. It’s only been a few days but his video has passed 110,000 views as of 21st of September. It was also filmed by Alex Klim, a local filmographer who’s making a name for himself in the country. (Visit him at www.alexklim.com)

Recently Kanye West was in town shooting two videos in the desert and Qatar Foundation and the movie Black Gold staring Antonio Banderas was also shot here.

I wonder how many other music videos will be directed here.

Now who can translate this song for us? (: Hopefully it’s not the usual topic of guns, drugs and hoes.

Screenshots and the video after the break…

    *Chorus i
    *Everyday Im starring in the mirror and realize how time passes by*
    *and wondering, what I achieved in my life, my dreams give me the strength*

    *Part 1:*
    *See, in every man there is a MANDELA, I stich myself wings to my back* *I dont dream just when I sleep, I HAVE A DREAM*

    *We are the voice of our youth, even the president knows who we are*
    *I die form y dream like MARTIN LUTHER KING*
    *and if I have to, I ll ignore my hunger and waive my food*
    *Ill do it like GHANDI, every heartbeat, let me dream and forget*
    *It seems like I learned from MUHAMMED ALI
    *Self-confident and without weakness I could hug the world*
    *Reaching out fort he Stars, floating above the clouds to the top
    *like TYSON breed Pigeons and gliding toward the sky*
    *Try to overthrow the loads over board now
    *Man, I will do it like ARMSTRONG, I will circle the earth once*
    *As CHE GUEVARA did good things for people, you can tear my heart
    *but believe me never tear my dreams.*
    *I believe so much in this script like STALLONE*
    *May I present M.Bilal singing by the MIC*

    *Hook:*

    *Everyday Im starring in the mirror and realize how time passes by*
    *and wondering, what I achieved in my life, my dreams give me the strength* *i want to be higher, higher than the rest of world*
    *i want to be higher, higher than the rest of world*
    *i want to be higher, higher than the rest of world*
    *i want to be higher, higher than the rest of world*

    *Part 2:*
    *God alone decides which star shines brightest *
    *You stare at Mercedes Stars, myself staring at the sky*
    *While you are sitting in the clubs and emtpying bottles, Im hustlin*
    *my life is like a kickdown through MONACOS narrow streets*
    *time is precious, every human is like a rough diamond*
    *I put on the crown and renounce the Rosary*
    *Im the kind of type who dances with the lion, Im like COSTNER in the movie FIELD OF DREAMS, I *
    *throw the Ball tot he univerise*
    *Im the silence in person like ZINEDINE ZIDAN*
    *But if its matters, Im standing like a man like SALAHIDIN*
    *And who claims, millionaires are made men*
    *He will bounce frontal against concrete block like SENER*
    *Listen my brother, there is nothing for free, ist the opposite*
    *Who would ever believe that even ACHILLES cried*
    *You are far from beging a star, even you live in a tour bus*
    *May I present M.Bilal singing by the MIC*

    *Hook:*

Freedom of Expression

    Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which the Qatari Government is a signatory of states: Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any medias and regardless of any frontiers.

    The Emiri Decision Number 86 of the year 2007 on the establishment of the Doha Free Information Centre marked yet another step towards establishing a State of rights and freedom of speech. The decision stipulated that the Centre be a non-profit organization, headquartered in Doha City, and have the authority to establish other affiliated centres inside and outside Qatar. It is worth mentioning that His Highness the Emir issued a decision in 1998 annulling the ministry of information, giving birth to a new era of freedom of speech where censorship was removed from local media.
