Médine is a practicing Muslim, and many of his lyrics deal with the hardships faced by people living below the poverty line, migrants, oppressed individuals, and Muslims in the Western world. He also wrote several articles for Time Magazine in 2005.[citation needed] One was entitled "How Much More French Can I Be". [1]

Médine is French for Medina.
