Troop 41


Troop 41

Troop 41 is an American hip hop ensemble from Raleigh, North Carolina founded in 2005. The group consists of three members: T-Breezy, Lil Lee and Lil Inferno.

Their 2010 single Do the John Wall was originally released by KAIRIZMIC Music, whose artist management and marketing genius pushed the song to chart as a top 100 digital single on iTunes and in Billboard Magazine, peaking at number 76 on the Billboard Hot 100[1]. The Do the John Wall single was later re-released on Universal Republic after successfully garnering the group a major recording contract due to charting on iTunes and Billboard Magazine, and receiving over ten million views on YouTube[2]. Troop 41's Do the John Wall single was produced by Darius "DeeMoney Beatz" Lassiter, and Executive Produced by Sigh Griffin. The song is based on a Kentucky-based dance, and inspired by seeing NBA basketball player John Wall performing the dance.

The group were described by SPIN as "a would-be Southern Pharcyde".[3]
