2 Y. 2 D. is the third track on Prince’s 39th studio album Hitnrun Phase Two. The title is an acronym for "2 Young 2 Dare" or "Too Young To Dare".

Basic tracking took place in early-to-mid 2011, most likely at Paisley Park Studios in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The original studio version of the track was played by DJ Rashida prior to Prince’s DJ set on 19 January 2013, Dakota Jazz Club & Restaurant, Minneapolis, Minnesota (along with The Breakdown). While the original version, as released on the album, is a horn-driven funk version, Prince and 3rdEyeGirl re-recorded the track in early 2013, also at Paisley Park Studios. This version was later described by Prince as "slinky rock", and remains unreleased.
