#30thAnniversary – Da Youngsta’s “Somethin 4 Da Youngsta’s”

Da Youngsta’s is a real family affair since the trio from Philadelphia is composed of brothers oTaji “Taj Mahal” Goodman and Qu’ran “Q-Ball” Goodman and their cousin Tarik “Reek Geez” Dawson. The music is also produced by L.G. the Teacher who happens to be the father of the aforementioned brothers. Their debut LP “Somethin 4 Da Youngsta’s” is a pretty solid effort if you take into account the fact that none of the emcees were over 15 years old when it was released. But the real gem linked to this project is definitely the remix of “Pass Da Mic” handled by soul brother number one, Pete Rock. This version is so good that they used it for the video of the second single.
