Saad El-Haddad (Arabic: سعد الحداد‎) (November 26, 1985), better known by his stage names Baba Saad or just Saad, is a German rapper of Lebanese heritage.

Biography[edit]

Early life[edit]

Baba Saad was born in Lebanon, but came to Germany in 1994.

Career[edit]

In early 2005, Saad was featured alongside Bushido in the joint album Carlo, Cokxxx, Nutten 2. In the summer of 2005, he got signed to Bushido's label ersguterjunge. At the end of 2005, Saad was featured on Bushido's album Staatsfeind Nr. 1.

In the spring of 2006, Saad released his own album, called Das Leben ist Saad (German "Life is Saad").

In March 2011, Saad joined newcomer Haftbefehl at a concert and announced after the performance that he had left ersguterjunge.[1] In an interview, he later stated that there were creative differences between him and the label. Moving on, he founded his own record label called Halunkenbande. But just a few months after signing the rappers Dú Maroc and SadiQ, Saad announced that he couldn't focus on the label at the moment because of a stroke of fate that caused him to move back to Lebanon.

After his return to Germany in 2013 – Dú Maro and SadiQ had meanwhile been dropped by the label – Saad continued both his career and the label management.

In April 2013, Saad's latest solo album S Doppel A D was released.
