Appolis is an American rapper, singer, and entrepreneur. Born and raised in Minneapolis, MN, he was brought up by his mom’s side of the family who are from Natchez, MS where his Midwest and Southern voice attacks the beat! Inspired by artists like 2pac, Prince, Kevin Gates, and Madd Man, he has been writing rhymes since eight years old. Appolis had a ruff time growing up when he lost his father to health problems and friends to gun violence. He then turned to the streets to make money while performing, going back to school, making music, and playing for a basketball team. Eventually it led to him starting an entertainment company Appolis Ent. with his uncle/partner Shawn Ford in 2020.
His latest visual Seen This Movie Before addresses the reoccurring friend or foe theme. “The inspirations to this video came from real life events. Going through relationship and friend problems but still finding a way overcome it” says Appolis. The video is is directed by OGTheDirector and was featured as lead single off the Minnesota Summer Burn Out mixtape presented by DJ D-Mil.
