Young Black Teenagers


Young Black Teenagers (YBT) was an early 1990's American rap group consisting of Kamron, First Born, ATA, Tommy Never, and DJ Skribble. Despite their name, none of the group was black - four were white and one Puerto Rican. They intended their name as a tribute to the black culture they were influenced by, but some thought their name offensive or ridiculous. YBT had the support of the prominent rap group Public Enemy and their producer Hank Shocklee signed them as the first act of his label Sound of Urban Listeners (SOUL). Read more on Last.fm

Despite their name, none of the group was black - four were white and one Puerto Rican. They intended their name as a tribute to the black culture they were influenced by, but some thought their name offensive or ridiculous. YBT had the support of the prominent rap group Public Enemy and their producer Hank Shocklee signed them as the first act of his label Sound of Urban Listeners (SOUL). They released their second album with MCA Records. Their debut album Young Black Teenagers (1991) featured the singles "Nobody Knows Kelli" (about the character Kelli Bundy from the sitcom Married With Children), "Proud to Be Black", and "To My Donna" (an attack on Madonna for taking the rhythm track of the Public Enemy song "Security of the First World" for her single "Justify My Love").

Their second album, Dead Enz Kids Doin' Lifetime Bidz (1993), featured the song "Tap the Bottle", their biggest single. The band did gain some publicity (albeit not necessarily positive) for the song "Time To Make The Dough Nutz", which contained a sample of Rush's 1981 hit "Tom Sawyer", angering many devoted Rush fans. YBT were listed among VH1's "Least Hiphop Moments", where they were overtly ridiculed for their overall name and premise. After "Tap The Bottle" became their only worldwide hit, YBT called it a day in 1994. Read more on Last.fm.
