De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig (The Youth of Today) is a Dutch hip hop and R&B group based in Amsterdam, Netherlands, renowned for their musical approach of irreverent, humorous lyrics and electronic beats. Their humorous style is characterised by their frequent use of word play, lyrical flirting with languages other than Dutch and the propagating of neologisms, such as "Watskeburt?!" (cf. the English wassup).


The group consists of Vieze Fur (real name Freddie Tratlehner), also known as Vieze Freddie, P. Fabergé (real name Pepijn Lanen), also known as P. Dronq or Faberyayo, Faberge, Faber-yayo and Peppie, and Willie Wartaal (real name Ollicio Locadia), also known as WiWa. When singing about his younger self WiWa also calls himself "Wiwaleantje" (little Wiwalean). Their producer is Bas Bron.


In the Netherlands they became known for their novelty hit single "Watskeburt?!". Released on 16 May 2005,[1] it topped the Dutch Top 40 for several weeks that year. Their debut album Parels voor de Zwijnen was released on 30 September 2005.[2]

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".

Their second album, titled De Machine was released on 25 April 2008, preceded by the single Hollereer on 4 April. In 2010, they released De Lachende Derde.
