Apollo The Great represents Camden, New Jersey. A small yet crime-ridden city, it is one Apollo likens to the Brazilian city of Rio De Janeiro in his latest single. Over a booming beat from Linzprag, he talks about his city's problem with narcotics and name drops the legendary dealer Frank Lucas. For Apollo, Camden is home, and he is more than comfortable with living in this environment. He knows how to move.
"Rio De Janeiro" is the lead single off Apollo's upcoming project, New Jersey Joe. The album pays homage to his grandfather, the boxer "Jersey" Joe Walcott.
