Info:Apolegetics also known as Agetics is from Toronto, Canada. Originally entering the hip hop scene as a novice, who went by the name C Soldier (Christ's Soldier), now after receiving more wisdom, many experiences, trials and tribulations, backsliding, and more discipline with God he has emerged to become whom we know today as Apolegetics.

Hip hop
Apolegetics grew up in the church almost his whole life but he only started listening to hiphop from the age of 9 (grade 4). For the first few years of listening to hip hop he was not really into it. He mainly just listened to the popular mainstream artists, it wasn't until the start of his teenage hood that he really started to appreciate it and listen to it on a larger scale.

Faith
At the age of 12 he came to know Jesus Christ as his Lord and personal saviour. As Apolegetics states: "This was a major event in my life, I started to take my life and things in it more seriously, I started to screen what I did, things I said, and even the places I went! "

Kirk Franklin
Ever since he started listening to hiphop all the music had been secular, the release of Kirk Franklin' Nu Nation video: Revolution, sparked his first encounter with a good gospel hiphop song or video. "There wasn't really that much Gospel hiphop at the time that I knew about and the stuff that I did hear I felt was whack, especially compared to the secular." Eager to find better Gospel hiphop, Apolegetics searched TV, radio, and even the internet.

Cross Movement
In 1998, he heard a couple tracks off The Cross Movement's second album "House of Representatives" and his search was over. "I rolled up on some crazy skilled underground Gospel hiphop artists …The Cross Movement, these guys were the first real quality gospel hiphop artists I came across, these cats turned me on to Gospel hiphop."

Name Change
His growth as a child of God and the increase involvement with gospel hip hop caused him to change his name from C Soldier to Apolegetics. His new name means to defend your faith, and is also someone who has a full general knowledge of the Bible where their able to defend against someone who comes with questions, accusations, or views contrary to the Word Of God.

Performance
Apolegetics has made it a point when performing to do what it takes to get the message he's trying convey across to the audience. He accomplishes this by reading scripture, doing acapellas, using various body actions to act out what he's saying, using vivid wordplay, and throwing lyrical punches.

Live
Apolegetics has performed live at various events such as: his church, outreaches, schools, concerts, youth jams, even a funeral! He has opened for the Gospel Dance Hall artist Prodical Son at a concert with over 1500 people.

On June 24th, 2005 Apolegetics released his first music project the: “Mixed Music Mixtape Volume 1” for free on his website. The next two projects are his debut album and a Mixed Music Mixtape Volume 2 is in the making as well for 2007.
