The Outsidaz was a hip hop group from Newark, New Jersey, perhaps best known through their affiliation with fellow New York area rappers, the Fugees, and Detroit area rappers D12.



The group formed in 1991 after underground rappers Young Zee, met D.U. and Pacewon at a New Year's Eve party. At the time they met, Young Zee and Pacewon were rival MCs. Pacewon & D.U. were members of a crew named PNS, while Zee headed a crew named Skitzo. They decided to unite into one group, The Outsidaz, following a lengthy microphone battle that it was decided ended in a tie. Along with Pacewon, D.U. and Young Zee, The Outsidaz consisted of Axe, Az Izz,[1] DJ Muhammed, Denzy, Loon One, DJ Spunk, S. Coop, Nawshis, Rah Digga, the late Slang Ton, Bskills and Yah Yah.[2] The Outsidaz are affiliated with the Refugee Camp, and made their first commercial appearance as guest artists on the song "Cowboys" off the Fugees multi-platinum sophomore LP "The Score. They were also affiliated with Detroit's D-12, collaborating with them on different projects. Eminem shouts out the Outsidaz at the end of the song "Just Don't Give a Fuck" featured on the Slim Shady LP, in the beginning of "Cum On Everybody", also featured on "Slim Shady LP", and in the end of "Till Hell Freezes Over" which was supposed to be on "Slim Shady LP" too. They were also referenced twice in the song "As the World Turns", on the "Slim Shady LP". In 2009, Young Zee appeared on Chicago rappers Saurus and Bones' debut album Mind Like Mine on the song "Let The Trumpets Blow." In 2011, Young Zee and Pacewon appeared on the Jedi Mind Tricks album Violence Begets Violence on the song "Design In Malice."
