Fler, alias Patrick Losensky was born on April 3rd, 1982 in West Berlin. His childhood was difficult. He grew up without a father because he separated from the family at a very young age. Unable to cope with his living conditions, he was referred for psychological treatment at the age of 15. After some time he came to a home. He broke off the training he had started here when he got in touch with the German rapper scene. The already well-known rapper Bushido took him under his wing and working with him, Fler became famous.
Fler spent the beginning of his life in the Thermometersiedlung in Berlin. More than 4,000 people live in this social melting pot, some of them in 22-story skyscrapers. Conflicts are inevitable among the residents, most of whom have a migration background. Growing up without a father, Fler found it difficult to find his way around, so at the age of 15 he entered psychological therapy. He was placed in a home. Here he began an apprenticeship as a painter and varnisher, which he ended because he did not like it. At the beginning of the 2000s he was successful in the Berlin sprayer scene. In 2002 he met the rapper Bushido. This was the opportunity for Fler to leave his difficult environment behind. The collaboration between the two was successful from the start and Fler’s career took off.
The career of the young rapper Fler started in 2002. The decisive factor was the collaboration with Bushido. With the first album Carlo Cokxxx Nutten they landed in the charts. Fler used the pseudonym “Frank White” here. The Berlin hip-hop label Aggro Berlin signed him. Here his first “Top 100” of the German charts song “Aggroberlina” appeared in 2004. At the end of this year things got restless in the German rapper scene. The members verbally attack each other through the lyrics in their songs. There is also a rift between Fler and Bushido. In 20005, Fler’s album “Neue Deutsche Welle” and the single to go with it were released. After that, Fler and his label “Aggro Berlin” are accused of right-wing radicalism. This is not confirmed and after the release of his second album “Der Trendsetter” all allegations are off the table. It continues with the tape “Airmax Muzik”, which will be released in 2007. In the same year he recorded the songs “Was is Beef?” with Sido, Alpa Gun and Bass Sultan Hengzt. and “That’s it!” on.
Next year, Fler’s song “Deutscha Bad Boy” was among the top 20 songs in the German single charts. This is a decoupling from the album “Fremd im Eigene Land”, which was created together with “Godsilla”. After this work, the group “Südberlin Masculine” was founded. There is again a collaboration between Fler and Bushido. Together with “Kay One” they record the album “Berlins Most Wanted”. This is again a success and ends up at number two in the German album charts. Fler uses his pseudonym “Frank White” here and for the next albums. His next album “Keiner geht klar mit mir” becomes a number one song in the German charts. In 2010, Bushido and Fler parted ways again.
His own label, named Masculine, was founded in 2011. The music of the rappers Fler, Silla and G-Hot is to be published here. The sixth album “Airmax Muzik II” and the seventh album “Im Bus completely in the back” were released on this label. These and all other albums and songs reach positions in the German charts. With the song “Barack Osama” Fler oriented himself again to gangsta rap. Shortly thereafter, his studio album “Blaues Blut” was released, which ended up in the top ten in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The best songs by Fler, which were released between 2002 and 2015, are summarized on the compilation “The State against Patrick Decker”. The classic gangsta and battle rap content is processed in the songs. But Fler also addresses his life in Berlin as a loner.
Fler received some of the most important awards in the rap scene. He received the Best Video National award in 2009, 2010 and 2018. He was recognized for Best Collaboration in 2010 and in 2016 he received the award for Best Rap Solo Act National.
Fler used many of his sayings in his songs. From the album Beastmode comes the quote “For my enemies I have no mercy. Others zigzag – I straight”. Fler is now very stable and quotes: “Joke, but I never laugh. That you win against me, blasphemy”.
