America’s most debaucherous rapper, Rob Apollo, is championing his own brand of unpredictable alt-rap for the digital age. Hailing from Detroit but raised by the internet, Apollo is a specialist in shenanigans. No thought is too intrusive to put to paper, no sound-bite is too provocative to sample, and no bar is too outlandish to record. Combining internet humor with hard bars and beats, Rob Apollo tracks have an addictive quality that leaves you wondering: ‘did he really just say that?’. Apollo’s provocative lyrics and chaotic attitude helped him gain national recognition for his 2019 album, “Whore,” a bubblegum-rap album doused in eroticism. This momentum persisted through frequent album and single releases, including the 2022 album “NSFW” and TikTok-viral singles Flash Gordon & TUBI.
Though Apollo’s songwriting is inarguably full of shenanigans, socially radical themes and deeply vulnerable storytelling keeps his music personal, inclusive, and reflective of his diverse background. Influenced equally by his Detroit upbringing, art-school education, Twitter shitposting, and leftist politics, Apollo seamlessly bridges rap, indie, and internet culture. He takes influence from contemporary boundary-pushing alt-rap artists such as Father, Rico Nasty, ZelooperZ, and Danny Brown. Known for his self-directed videos as much as his music, Apollo’s unique visuals combine with his chaotic music to build a complete audio-visual world around the theme of "contemporary debauchery."
NEW ALBUM RELEASE
NSFW 2: I LIKE GIRLS
NSFW 2: I Like Girls is 2023's official soundtrack to shenanigans. Building on the outlandish songwriting and digi-trap production of last year's NSFW: Notoriously Debaucherous, NSFW 2 pushes Apollo to a whole new level of silliness and chaos.
A dance track about addiction recovery. A love letter to every girl in the world. A vicious critique on broke behavior. All seasoned with inclusive-but-devious punchlines that only Apollo could deliver. This is NSFW!
The 13-track album is out now on all streaming platforms!
