Nelly Plans to Re-Launch Troop Clothing

Nelly has announced that he will be re-launching the 80’s hip-hop clothing company, Troop Clothing. Troop Clothing was one of the first clothing lines embraced by the hip-hop community. It was created in the Bronx, New York in 1986 and was made popular by LL Cool J. The line will consist of both footwear and apparel. Nelly is seen here wearing the line at the 2007 BET Hip Hop Awards.

It will be interesting to see how this pans out. Nelly has yet to have a successful clothing line for men. Let’s just hope it does better than Vokal.

Do you think Nelly will have as much success with Troop Clothing as he has with Apple Bottoms?
