Meet Opera Singer Turned Rapper Troop Brand

Mississippi-bred, Atlanta-based hip-hop and R&B artist Troop Brand first made waves with his 2017 single “Indeed.”
The young MC has collaborated with the likes of The Far East Movement (“Like a G6”) and ATL producer Wheezy (Drake, Meek Mill, Young Thug), toured with hip-hop artist Pell, and experimented with his own pop-friendly, country-leaning brand of rap.
A classically trained opera singer who was raised on tour with his mother and singing in the church choir, Troop is known for hitting a mean falsetto and using down-to-earth lyrics that attest to his Southern roots.
Touting looks from FADER, Pigeons & Planes, Beats 1 Radio and more, this MC and singer continues to build buzz as he looks ahead to the May 31, 2019 release of his debut album, Carpe Diem.
