The fans loved the album and had nothing but positive feedback and wished nothing but greatness through the rest of his career! Prior to Hardknocks 1, Appolis also released numerous mixtapes including The Golden Package, UnderRated, Fukk Ova Errabody, The Revenant, all of which was making a lot of noise in the streets of Omaha and Minneapolis. Born and raised in Minneapolis, Mn. Appolis was raised by his mom side of the family who are from Natchez, Ms where his Midwest and Southern voice attacks the beat! Appolis does music because he says it’s his therapy and also for his kids, family, and people he inspires. He has been writing and making his own music since 8 years old. He was inspired by artists like 2pac, Prince, Kevin Gates, Madd Man, and more. Appolis had a ruff time growing up losing his father to health problems and some friends to gun violence at the age of 17. He turned to the streets making money, doing shows 21 plus at night, going back to school doing work and playing for a basketball team all in a day's work on the regular. Appolis is not just a name it’s a LEGACY!
