Felix Antoine Blume (born 3 August 1984) is a German rapper, known as Kollegah. He is also known as "Kollegah der Boss". He is signed to label Selfmade Records. His rapping technique is heavily based on gangsta rap, but he calls his personal characterization "pimp rap". He's well known for his double time-ability, complex rhyme-structures and punchlines.
Felix Blume's father is of Canadian and his mother of German descent. He spent his childhood partially without a father. His nickname Kollegah came from his Algerian stepfather. Kollegah grew up in Simmern.
In 2004 he finished grammar school with the a-level reaching an average of 3.3.
As of now he is studying law at the University of Mainz.
On 11 March 2009, Chronik 2 was released, an album featuring the Selfmade Records artists. The song "Westdeutschlands Kings" performed by Kollegah, Favorite and Farid Bang, targeted insults at Sido, Fler and Kitty Kat from Aggro Berlin.
On 13 March, a song titled "Früher wart ihr Fans" was released by Fler, Kitty Kat and Godsilla as a reaction. In the song, they accuse Selfmade Records artists of having created the feud for the sole purpose of marketing their album; Kitty Kat also attacks Favorite by referring to the death of his parents, who died in a car accident.
Kollegah responded on 20 March with the song "Fanpost", calling Fler a "fat potato" and claims that he was penetrated with a carrot.
