L7a9d is a Moroccan rapper and human rights activist.
After two years in prison he was released in 2013. In February 2014 he released a new album called Waloo.
On 13 February 2014, the police raided a library where he was holding a press conference in which he intended to present his new album.
On 18 May 2014, L7a9d was arrested again at the entrance of the Mohamed V Stadium in Casablanca. He was trying to attend a game between Raja Casablanca and Moghreb Tetouan, and policemen arrested him claiming he was selling tickets in the black market, an accusation which he denied. Additionally the police pressed charges against him for allegedly beating four policemen during the event.
In September 2014 he was nominated by European United Left–Nordic Green Left for the Sakharov Prize, along with the Tunisian rapper Weld El 15 and the Egyptian blogger Alaa Abdel Fattah.
