This 18 year old MC and Beat Maker known as Apollo Knox from Salem, MA has made some major noise in a short amount of time. Since spring of 2012 his name has been buzzin among many circles as a result of his talent and drive... and for sounding a lot older than he is.
Put on the radar by Justice of the Wreck Shop Movement as one of Massachusetts up-n-coming Hip Hop artists, Apollo, only 17 years old at the time has since had the opportunity to be interviewed on radio and perform at various events and cyphers along side legends and seasoned vets which has led to numerous collaborations. Some of those events include The Formula showcase, the Freedom Cypher, the Unity Cypher and Salems annual Bridgin G.A.P.S. concert.
With multiple music videos filmed and edited by 16 year old Ankit Bagchi of Delta 9 he's made sure his presence is known on the web and among the Hip Hop community. In this interview you'll find that he sparked enough interest of another talented local artist known as Slim Pickens to want to interview him for the Raw Report. And it goes a little somethin like thiiiiis.....
Slim Pickens: Who are you, where ya from and where are you going?
Apollo Knox: Apollo Knox, Salem, MA. Currently residing in Revere, Ma. Hopefully goin down in history as one of the best.
Slim Pickens: Tell me what inspired your song Never the Less?
Apollo: Once I heard that beat it just spoke to me. I felt I had a lot to get off my chest just from seeing my generation get fixated on all this music meant to keep them narrow minded. Also wanted to make it crystal clear where I'm representing. Being 17 at the time it was definitely a pivotal point of my career.
