Young Black Teenagers (YBT) was an early 1990s American rap group consisting of Kamron, First Born, Tommy Never, and DJ Skribble. Despite their name, none of the group was black. 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 producerHank 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) Their second album, Dead Enz Kidz 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”, as it contained a sample of Rush‘s 1981 hit “Tom Sawyer“, angering many devoted Rush fans, even though YBT insisted it had been meant as a tribute.
