Silla , formerly Godsilla (born May 5, 1984 ; real name Matthias Schulze ) is a German rapper from Berlin who was under contract for a long time with the Berlin independent label I Luv Money Records . From September 2011 to the end of 2014 he was with Flers Label Maskulin Music Group . Silla has been under contract with DJ Gan-G's label Major Movez since 2015 .


Silla grew up as the son of a civil servant and a secretary . During his school days, Silla met the current I Luv Money Records owner, King Orgasmus One . Through King Orgasmus One, Silla came into contact with many of today's big names in German rap. He has been married to the well-known Austrian tattoo model Lexy Hell since January 2, 2020.

In 2002 I Luv Money Records founding member Bushido left the Berlin label. The resulting problem for King Orgasmus One and his friend Bass Sultan Hengzt , who no longer had a studio to record after Bushido's departure , was solved by Silla through contact with the Berlin Serk . Serk, who owned a studio, had met Silla a short time before.

He made his debut as an artist on the now indexed King Orgasmus One album "F * ck me! And shut your mouth".

Silla was featured as a feature on Bass Sultan Hengzt's debut album Rap Needs No Abitur , which is now indexed , which was his second appearance on a publication.

In 2004 Silla released his debut album Überertalentiert . A year later, the collaboration album Schmutzige Euros with King Orgasmus One followed.

2005 Bass Sultan Hengzt went along with Bushido and Saad on II Carlo, Cokxxx, hookers - Tour . Silla acted as Hengzt's back-up during the performances.

In 2005 he was on two major tours across Germany, Austria and Switzerland, the Berlin remains hard tour and the horror core tour .

After a separation accompanied by various disstracks , Bass Sultan Hengzt left the Bushido area.
