Best Beatboxers of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Adam Rupp

First time I heard him I had to check to be sure there was no equipment like drums near him, this was in 2011. He is even more amazing now with the sounds he can produce and how he can keep preforming for 2+ hours. His solo is truly something to hear and be awestruck with his talent.

I have never seen anyone perform for two hours straight the way this man did, and never drop a beat! He is the best! Personality is a plus, his solo was the most amazing performance I have ever heard!

Without a doubt, Adam is the best performing in a capella in the US today. If you listen closely to most groups, you will hear beautiful harmonies with a nice beat and good, even great, percussion. Even so, you know you are listening to vocals only. Not so with Home Free, Adam is so amazing you have to stop and remind yourself that there are no instruments. The few songs were Adam does simply sing harmony are made even more special to fans of Home Free as we cherish those moments of hearing his voice. Though they are incredible recorded, you really must see Home Free, and Adam Rupp, live!

Adam is so amazing. I would love to see him up close just so I can See what he does because he is so awesome

He is the best and is even called the human orchestra

He is definitely the best beatboxer of all time. He can make multiple sounds at the same time. He is fastm, percussive, and is different from all these beatboxers. He is called The Human Orchestra for a reason.

3 Kevin Olusola

Likely the most successful of the contenders (Grammy winner and #1 Billboard debut album with his group Pentatonix). He is a classically trained musician, he invented Cello-boxing, and while he already is amazing, he's always coming up with new sounds and beats to improve himself and his group. To note he's also becoming quite the amazing singer.

Kevin's talent is unlike anything you have ever heard before. His music inspiration and fusion of hip-hop with classical music is what helps distinguish him among other amazing artists out there.

Beat-boxing is not his only talent, it just happens to be where he shines the brightest

He can play cello, beat box and sing AT THE SAME TIME. And he also graduated yale and can speak mandarin and Spanish fluently. Why would you not vote for this man?

He has made the most impact on current music by being able to broaden the amount of music that Pentatonix is able to perform. Without this ability, they would be far more constricted and wouldn't have the influence they do now.

4 Dave Crowe

Man can this guy dubstep. He starts off his show slow and I thought it wasn't so cool but then when he drops the beat he can do some amazing sounds that is entertaining to watch

Absolutely phenomenal! It's as if he swallowed Skrillex and is now producing dubstep-like sounds from some sort of machine in his vocal chords.

I checked out all of these beatboxers. The are all amazing but Crowe is my favorite.

Amazing street performer

If your mother only knew and that's all I got to say.

Old school who deserves a lot of respect!

The Godfather of Noyze, The Pioneer of modern beatboxing. Till date no one has the quality and clarity compared to him. He is the benchmark of beatboxing

7 Tom Thum

Tom Thum pushes the limits of the human voice to create incredible soundtracks of impossible beats and phenomenal sounds, with scratched vinyl, the Michael Jackson back-catalogue, the didgeridoo and an entire fifties jazz band amongst his vocal repertoire.

He's the guy. Tom has the ability to create such voices or, sounds that sounds fantastic, unimaginable, realistic, and sometimes hilarious. When heard, the music he creates sound just like those emitted from instruments.

It is like he ate a music band. totally awesome. you should be in I tunes

This guy is awesome and the best.I have learnt all his beats and my classmates are a fan of me.

The Contenders

11 Reeps One

For me he is the best nothing else!

Best technique, sound clarity and perfect flow. His sound is pure and really feels like real instruments. His flow is really smooth without mistakes. Also he is really skilled in performing mid and deep bass.

How is he not first? Check out Reeps One - Move on YouTube, then you'll see.

Reeps one is the best bro

15 KrnFx

This guy is just crazy his style is pretty sick and his sound affects just make it even better!

Incredible hip hop, dubstep and technicality skills. One of the best in the world currently.

Most sick boxer of all time first time heard him thought it was special affects

KRNFX is one of the best, for sure, especially with his sound spectrum being so wide, rich, and full

16 Beardyman

I don't understand why he is SO under rated. This guy can actually CREATE innovative music unlike most who just mimic the effects of a few instruments. And to top it off, he's got a great musicality too, apart from technicality. Immense respect for this man.

Beardyman is AMAZING. He makes sounds that almost no one else can, including an awesome guitar sound. He deserves to be in the top 3.

I believe he can make the sickest beat ever.

Just the best full stop

17 SoCloseToToast

I didn't expect SoCloseToToast to be this far down the list. I didn't expect him to be #1 though. But ToasterKing should be around the top 5

SoCloseToToast should be the #1 beatboxer in the world, I mean just hear him

Soclosetotoast is way better than lasvegasortiz. Bring up 2 tabs and listen to both of them beatbox #Soclosetotoast number 1 :D

This dude is awesome

Alem should be #1, not Adam Rupp. Alem could have easily smoked him in a battle.

19 Genesis

Why number 19? You should be number 1! It's so cool what you can do with your mouth. I've watched all his auditions, but I can't stop replaying him in the finals. He can really dance! Who knew he could sing, dance, and gearbox?! Totally my favorite ever!

He's the best beat boxer I ever heard in my life even though I beat box too he's really good

He's the best in the entire world. I can't stop replaying the videos!

20 Dharni

He simply holds the crown of beatboxing. Watch his battle with krnfx, he fucqd him @ semifinals

Dharni at 21? Haha. The King of Musiciality and two time GBBB champion. I'm sure the person who vote Adam Rutt and the other low class beatboxer doesn't know anything about beatbox.
