Hailing from Detroit but rooted in the internet, Rob Apollo is creating contemporary debauchery. Alternating between melodic pop-rap and aggressive alternative-trap, Apollo is best known for his outlandish quotables, sticky choruses, and seemingly endless string of raunchy punchlines. By combining contemporary themes with hip-hop's traditional braggadocio, Apollo is able to disrupt rap’s expectations. With his unique and youthful writing voice, Apollo creates music that's an honest reflection of young adulthood in the internet age. Apollo's main influences are other eclectic black artists such as Father, Hook, Rico Nasty, Playboi Carti, and Jean Dawson.
Rob Apollo gained national recognition for his third album, "Whore," a bubblegum-rap project about sexual indulgence. The album helped him earn a nomination for Best New Artist in St. Louis at the 2019 Slumfest Awards. A quick dig into Apollo’s discography displays an array of releases that sort though serious subjects such as depression, loss, and love, but this more personal music is now released separately, under the moniker Saint Hades.
