Amsterdam, The Netherlands (2005 – present)

De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig (“The Youth Of Today”) is a group formed in Amsterdam, The Netherlands in 2005.

The group is a 4-piece made up of Vieze Fur a.k.a. Vieze Freddie (Freddie Tratlehner), P. Fabergé (Pepijn Lanen) a.k.a. Faberyayo, Willie Wartaal a.k.a. WiWa (Ollicio Locadia) and ‘de Neger des Heils’ (Bas Bron, Majoor Vloshard).

They are known most notably for their chart-topping single Watskeburt?!, which then became Dutch slang for “what’s up?!”. In 2005 they released their debut album named Parels Voor De Zwijnen (Pearls for Swine), featuring raps containing rather esoteric lyrics full of (partially made up) street language. With comical lyrics and an attitude telling they do not take themselves too seriously, they gained a unique position in the Dutch rap scene. Their main themes are alcohol, sex and drugs. All tracks on the group’s debut album Parels voor de Zwijnen were produced by Bas Bron.

Subsequent single releases include Voorjekijkendoorlopen (“Lookinfrontofyoukeeponwalking”) and the Christmas-themed Ho Ho Ho (with Katja Schuurman).

In July 2006, the group was featured on the song Poes in de Playboy of the Dutch reggae/ska band Luie Hond. In May 2007, they released the single Shenkie, for which a video clip contest was issued. The winning video can be seen here. Both singles were never released on album.
