Young Black Teenagers Lyrics Follow

Young Black Teenagers (YBT) was an American hip hop group from Long Island, New York formed by producer Hank Shocklee, composed of four white persons, and one who was half Puerto Rican. YBT achieved its biggest success with its 1993 single "Tap the Bottle", off its second album, Dead Enz Kidz Doin' Lifetime Bidz. The group consisted of frontman Kamron, ATA, First Born, Tommy Never, and DJ Skribble. The name Young Black Teenagers was given to them by Public Enemy, upon mediation by the Bomb Squad production team.
Young Black Teenagers was controversial due to its name and lyrical content; some Afrocentric rappers viewed the group as an example of cultural appropriation. Young Black Teenagers never identified as being an African-American group; its members described the name as being symbolic, while others suggested the name was a joke and DJ Skribble later stated Shocklee intended to provoke controversy with the name. Ultimately, YBT split after recording three albums, only two of which have been released.
