Houston Rap Icon Lil Troy Details Surviving 18-Wheeler Fire

Houston rap legend Lil Troy, known most prominently for his hit record “Wanna Be a Baller,” is past his recording days but has transitioned to another entrepreneurial venture with his own trucking company. Earlier this week, Lil Troy narrowly escaped an 18-wheeler fire and shared video footage of the ordeal capturing the attention of local news outlets.

Lil Troy explained how he saw smoke coming from the hood of his truck while on the highway. Soon after noticing the smoke, the entire cabin became engulfed in flames.

“I think God has a better plan for me,” he said. “Life after music. Doing something different. My second journey in life. Something different I can do.” He continued, “Right before I got ready to exit, I started to see fire and flames coming up from the hood. I was like, ‘Oh, I got to get out this truck.’ You know what I’m saying? It’s fire!”

“It took them a while to put the fire out. While they were there, it went ‘Boom’ again! So, I thank God for the fire department,” Lil’ Troy said. “They came and made sure nobody else got injured at the same time… I started thinking about my family and worrying about how they need me. It’s not my time to go right now.”
