Musical Youth is a Grammy Award-nominated British-Jamaican pop/reggae group. Formed in 1979 at Duddeston Manor School in Birmingham, England. They are best remembered for their successful 1982 Grammy-nominated single, "Pass the Dutchie." Some critics and fans say the group was inspired after New Edition and The Jacksons.

The group featured two sets of brothers, Kelvin and Michael Grant, plus Junior and Patrick Waite. The latter pair's father, Frederick Waite, was a former member of Jamaican group The Techniques, and sang lead with Junior at the start of the group's career in the late 1970s. They received a Grammy Award nomination for Best New Artist on its 25th Anniversary on February 23, 1983.
