Zaqueri "Aphromoo" Black is an American League of Legends player, currently playing as a Support for 100 Thieves.
Aphromoo was born in Whittier, California, United States on September 8, 1992. He currently lives in Los Angeles.
Aphromoo played on 6 other professional teams and was a highly reputable AD player before switching to CLG. However, after his former team's loss to the hands of CLG at IPL 5, he accepted an offer from CLG to join the team as their support player. Aphromoo wanted to win and partnered with his co-star Doublelift in bottom lane, this combination was nicknamed Rush Hour and was considered to be one of the most feared lanes in the LCS at the time. On May 27, 2013 Aphromoo left the CLG roster and has been a free agent since then. On the 20th and 21st of August Aphromoo competed in the eBay 1v1 tournament representing Save The Children and managed to get into the semifinals but ended up losing to Westrice in the semifinals.
In October 2013, Aphromoo was announced as the new AD for the reformed Team Curse. In October 13th, Aphromoo was released from the new Team Curse roster. Aphromoo then received an offer from Doublelift to play support for CLG once again during a solo queue encounter. With the support changes in Season 4, Aphromoo found a renewed motivation to play the role. After a successful tryout period, Aphromoo rejoined CLG as their starting support player and reforms the Rush Hour botlane with Doublelift.
In the Spring Split CLG finished 3rd in regular season and 5th/6th in playoffs after losing to Team Liquid (0-3). In the Summer Split CLG finished in second after losing to Team Liquid in a Tiebreaker. Finishing in 2nd still earned them a bye in the playoffs where they played Team Impulse and won 3-0 sending them to the finals against long time rivals TSM. After another 3-0 Victory against TSM, CLG Qualified for the 2015 World Championship. After failing to make it out of the Group Stage in the 2015 World Championship, the organization decided to make some changes in the team and replaced Pobelter and Doublelift with HuHi and Stixxay respectively.
CLG had an impressive first split with its new roster with a record of 13 - 5 and going on to beat Liquid 3-2 in the semifinals and beat TSM 3-2 in the finals where they then qualified for MSI. CLG impressed the world at MSI with a 7-3 record and making it to the finals vs SKT, losing 0-3 but taking home second place. After MSI CLG went back to NA and struggled the first half of the Summer Split. CLG ended up finishing 4th with a record of 10 - 8 and then beating Liquid in the quarter finals 3 - 1 and losing to TSM 0 - 3 in the semi finals. They would go on to play IMT in the 3rd/4th Place Match and lose 2-3 but in the end would qualify for worlds on circuit points.
