Lil’ Troy

Biography

Troy Birklett, better known by his stage name Lil' Troy is a rapper from Houston, Texas.

Before his rapping career, Birklett was a successful drug dealer, who funded his music business with the money he earned from selling drugs. He eventually was convicted of "using a communications device to commit a felony" and was sentenced to 18 months in prison, although served only nine months in Beaumont, Texas federal detention.

Lil' Troy, who featured in his songs many members of Houston's thriving rap scene of the late 1990s, managed to reach national audiences with his single "Wanna Be a Baller" produced by Bruce "Grim" Rhodes. After the success of the lead single, Lil' Troy was picked up by Universal Music Group, which re-released his debut album in 1999 with a larger national distribution. The debut album was a success, as it certified platinum by the RIAA selling 1.5 million copies.
