Apollo J

"Every song is a small piece of who I am; I'm intentional about every word"

Apollo J is a young, emerging rap artist based in Durham, North Carolina. Originally from Brooklyn, Apollo J now attends Duke University and is signed to Small Town Records. He always loved writing fiction stories and poetry, but only started to share his work publicly in his junior year of high school with the school’s Spoken Word Club. But Apollo J believes that rap music is a higher level of poetry, where, more than just sounding good, his music can have meaning. Apollo J’s biggest inspirations are J Cole, Eminem, and Kendrick Lamar, but he is also developing his own distinct personality, where he can use his lifetime of poetry-writing to give his music meaning.
