Lil' Troy is an American rapper.

Lil' Troy, who featured in his songs many members of the Screwed Up Click, managed to break out of Houston's thriving rap scene in the late nineties with "Wanna Be a Baller," one of the few Houston-based songs at the time to reach national audiences. The song propelled his debut album, "Sittin' Fat Down South", to respectable success, particularly for a Houston artist. Released in 1998, Universal picked up the album, re-released it in 1999, and helped "Wanna Be a Baller" spread from city to city. As the late nineties became the early 2000s, "Wanna Be a Baller" still garnered play. In May 2006, he launched a relatively upscale, contemporary, casual clothing line. Also in 2006, Lil' Troy released a DVD that is also titled "Paperwork". It features a full-length documentary about rapper Scarface that accuses him of being a police informant and provides supposedly real evidence of documents proving the accusation.
