AllHipHop Staff

Another blast from the past has made its way to TROOP, a popular 80's clothing brand, has been revived by rapper Nelly. Created in the Bronx, New York in 1986, TROOP was one of the first brands to be adopted by the hip-hop community.

Consisting of both apparel and footwear, the brand was popularized in the mainstream by pioneering rap acts like LL Cool J. Nelly reintroduced TROOP to a new generation of music fans during last year’s BET Hip-Hop Awards. He now adds the brand to his already successful female clothing line, Apple Bottoms.

Check out an interview with Boss Lady and Nelly back in February 2008, where he discusses TROOP:
