"Da Youngstas" were a rap group that consisted of brothers Taji "Taj Mahal" and Qu'ran Goodman and their cousin Tarik Dawson. Their music featured production from hip hop legends Pete Rock, the Beatnuts, Marley Marl, K-Def and DJ Premier.

The group released four albums in four years, experiencing its greatest success with 1993's The Aftermath. They briefly feuded with fellow teen rap group Kris Kross over the fact, unlike the more famous Atlanta duo, they wrote their own rhymes.[1]
