Hailing from Detroit but raised by the internet, Rob Apollo’s music is contemporary debauchery. Alternating between punchy digital-trap and melodic pop-rap, Apollo’s different styles are bridged by his sticky choruses, provocative themes, and outlandish punchlines. He disrupts rap’s expectations with his progressive-but-chaotic writing voice; his music is 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.
