The YG'z was an American East Coast hip hop group that recorded the EP Street Nigga on 1993.
The group is not to be confused with the popular hip-hop group by the same name that is more commonly known as Young Gunz.
The group was from Mount Vernon, which was also home at one point to not only Pete Rock's extended musical family, but also to hip-hop artists Heavy D and P Diddy
Four out of the six songs on Street Nigga were produced by the infamous producer Pete Rock, who took the group under his wing and helped them get a record deal with Reprise/Warner Bros. Records, a sister label of Elektra Records within the WEA family, to which Pete Rock was signed.
The group was a featured guest on the song "Death Becomes You" by the hip-hop duo Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth on the Menace II Society original soundtrack.
