Troy Harris II

Chief Contributor at Grits & Gospel

Troy is a part-time cynic and a full-time idealist. By day, he manages international ad campaigns for big brands. By night? He spends time trying to convince you he's a writer. Touching on a little bit of everything (and a whole lot of nothing), his interests range from jacks and marbles to Jack Daniels - anything in between is fair game. Though he moonlights as a guest contributor for Hip Hop Golden Age, you can find all of his social commentary on or @GritsAndGosepl on Twitter, IG, and FB. A marketing and sociology graduate of Florida A&M, Troy now resides in his hometown of Atlanta.
