Is there still a growing contingent of female beatboxers? I def need to know if young girls are telling their mothers: I'M NOT FINISHING LAW SCHOOL, MOM, I ALREADY TOLD YOU I WANT TO BE A BEATBOXER!! I would be the dad who says you have to let her spread her wings and fly. Or her lips and make beats. Erm. Whatever. But seriously, if it's plateaued, ok, but if there's still a cresting wave of feminine spittle short circuiting mics around the globe I, for one, would like to read that trend piece immediately.
So I got put on to some of the pioneers of the caucasian beatbox renaissance, and turns out when you get sent one beatboxer there's thusands more behind the walls of youtube. So here's another young, white, aspiring Doug E Fresh:
So that's cool. I know what you're thinking though, young white boys doing hip hop stuff is whatever whatever at this point. But did you know the ladies were getting down also? Honestly, show me an assimilated negro whose melanin doesn't flare from excitement at the thought of white-girls-gon'-wild-beatboxin' and i'll show you ... i don't know, but it won't be me because as soon as SaRa turns of age we're getting married and doing our vows beatbox styley. Maybe I'll even make the ring pop out of the back of my throat:
word. and as we see here, they're working at it diligently ...and look ma, it's not just hip hop tunes anymore:
as soon as she turns her head right side up, she'll be ready for primetime.
But just when you think it's a black and white thing, the Asians are like yooooo, we got this too, son!
Btw, what does this girl know about "Push It"? You know your hip hop song is classic when young asian girls are beatboxing it...
of course amidst all this oral drum machine assimilation, we shouldn't forget that black people are still the pros, only we can give the smooth polished performance, with a white blazer, in a concert hall full of seated caucasians:
word. make that music with your mouth, kids.
next up .... Obama? You know he wants to.
