“Summoned to the judge, it's okay; She recognized my head, it's okay; I'm going to end up in the closet, it's okay, ”Sadek said in 2013. This time, fiction has caught up with reality and it's serious. Tuesday night, the 28-year-old rapper brutally attacked the youtuber Bassem Braïki, with the help of several people.

Everything took place in Vénissieux, near Lyon. Sadek, who was to perform in a showcase in a hall in Saint-Priest on February 8, saw this date be canceled due to the risk of crowds. The rapper estimated that Bassem Braïki, a streamer who makes free antenna on YouTube, was at the origin of the commotion and the two escaped by messages interposed on the social networks. The blogger then invited the rapper to come and explain himself and disclosed his address. But the explanation came to an end. On a video widely distributed on the Internet this morning, you could see Bassem Braïki being kicked and lynched to the blood with baseball bats and pellet weapons. On some videos, we hear one of the attackers talking about Neuilly-Plaisance, the city of Seine Saint-Denis where Sadek is from.

He also posted on social media a video shot, it seems, after the attack. We see Sadek there, bloodied hands, singing "Eh oh, we come home from work", obviously very proud of his coup.

Facts that Sadek later acknowledged in another video. “I am not proud of myself. I gave in to violence and hatred like a fool because after a while I could no longer bear threats with weapons. (...) I will pay for it and I am fully aware of it. What will happen to me is well done for me. Don't take that as an example, " he said, assuring that he had tried to file a complaint " like a good citizen " , without success. “I hope this story will serve as an example for everyone. I hope Bassem will question himself and think about it, ” he added.
Bassem in stable condition according to his brother
"By instinct of survival, he managed to go up to his house, where my mother recovered him and called the firefighters," said Bayrem Braïki, brother of the victim and elected PCF in Vénissieux, in a press release relayed by Le Progrès .
"Fortunately, my brother is better, his condition is no longer critical," reassured Bayrem, who called for calm against threats of reprisals. “And in addition to messages of support for my family, we see calls for violence and revenge blossoming. Let it be clear, our family does not want that! We are victims and we want reparations, but through justice. Let her do her job serenely, ” he asked. A flagrant investigation was opened for violence with a weapon and in a meeting by the Lyon public prosecutor's office for violence with a weapon and in a meeting.
