Apollo Fresh was born in New York as Jonathan Carmin Appolon. He moved to Broward County Florida young where he was raised and still resides. Music has always been a large part of this artist’s life as he started playing instruments at 7 years old and started creating rap music at 15 years old. He first started rapping when his high school football teammates convinced him to make a song after hearing his freestyles. After writing this first song, he fell in love with making music. He had challenges in the beginning of his career that helped him grow as both a person and an artist. He was balancing 6 classes in a MIT civic design and engagement program, his mental health, and having his first hit blow up without having a manager. Though this was very challenging, his choice to not give up on school was a very important one. He learned to balance his career with his education to be able to be successful in both. This is mirrored in his music as he hopes his fans learn to enjoy life and believe in themselves.
He wants his listeners to know their dreams are achievable and they deserve to make the most out of life whatever that means to each individual person. He values giving all he has to his ambitions and never losing himself in the process of it.
Apollo Fresh is an independent artist and works with different producers to help create his hits, specifically working with Blake$ale. Apollo Fresh currently has an EP coming out called “Life is Anime.” This EP embodies the enjoyment of life and highlights the parts of life that anime tends to be inspired by. Also be on the lookout for his music video for his song “Gomu Gomu Bounce” coming soon.
