Hailing from Detroit but currently based in Saint Louis, Rob Apollo makes alternative rap. Apollo’s provocative persona helps him dismantle rap's expectations; his bold attitude and radiant demeanor are front and center in his music. Known for his songs' sexual boasts, outlandish punchlines, and humorous quotables, Apollo's songwriting is his vehicle for conveying the fun and excitement of youth. A quick dig into Apollo's discography also displays an array of songs that sort though serious subjects such as depression, loss, and love, but he now releases this more personal music under the moniker “Saint Hades.”
Rob Apollo gained local and national recognition for his third album, "Whore," a pull-no-punches project about indulgence and debauchery. The album helped him earn a nomination for Best New Artist in St. Louis at the 2019 Slumfest Awards. His main influences are other eccentric black artists such as Father, Tyler, the Creator, HOOK, and Jean Dawson. Since moving to St. Louis in 2017, Apollo has released four projects: APOLLO in November 2017, HADES in March 2019, Whore in November 2019, and Accords in March 2020.
