De Jeugd van Tegenwoordig ("Kids These Days" lit.: The Youth of Nowadays) is a Dutch hip hop and R&B group based in Amsterdam, The 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 the word "watskeburt" (cf. the English wassup).

The group consists of Vieze Fur ("Filthy Fur", real name Freddie Tratlehner), also known as Vieze Freddie ("Filthy 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, Wartaal means "gibberish" or "ravings", the name Willie Wartaal resembles Willie Wortel, the Dutch name for Gyro Gearloose), also known as WiWa. When singing about his younger self WiWa also calls himself "Wiwelientje" (little Wiwelien). Their producer is Bas Bron.

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

In July 2006, the group was featured on the song Poes in de Playboy ("Pussy in the Playboy") of the Dutch reggae/ska band Luie Hond ("Lazy Dog"). In May 2007, they released the single Shenkie.

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

The well known pizza delivery service Dominos did a promotion with the hit 'One Sentence Serenade' performed by Faberyayo, introducing various new words such as; 'berig' , 'luxueus' and 'sensationalistic'. Faberyayo currently holds 1.5 % of the Dominos shares in Holland.
