Top 10 Best Beatboxers of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Adam Rupp

Without a doubt, Adam is the best at performing a cappella 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 where Adam simply sings 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!

It is totally awesome that Adam Rupp is the world's number one beatboxer. There's no one that can ever come close to what Adam does. His solos are amazing and beyond belief. His range of beatboxing far exceeds everyone else's. Adam is a gift from God to this world. He is a true Minister of Music and is not to be confused with a music minister. Two totally different things. Of course, when Adam does sing, he has a beautiful voice and harmonizes perfectly with the rest of Home Free. We are so blessed with the gift of Adam Henry Rupp.

2 Hikakin

I love Reeps One, but boy, this guy is awesome. I have one of his beats in my head RIGHT NOW!

He has sicker beats than anyone else I have ever heard.

In my opinion, he may be the best beatboxer in the whole world!

3 Daichi

I don't understand why he's so low on the list...

Yes, his beat is very good, but why is he ranked so low?

Amazing. Just so amazing.

4 Joseph Poolpo

Is the greatest.

5 Kevin Olusola

Perhaps his all-round music skills mask his extraordinary skills in beatboxing. Yes, he plays cello (and cello boxes!). And he sings occasionally. He even takes the place of the trumpet when needed. But beatboxing is his thing, and he's awesome. He finds all kinds of different beats, effects, and styles to fit a wide range of covers and original music with Pentatonix, plus his own music. Clearly number one in my humble opinion.

Kevin is the most talented person I've ever seen or heard. He is so inspirational while being efficient at beatboxing. He gives so much effort into everything he does and is so wise. He is very humble and encourages others to try new things. His KO Corners are very inspirational as well. He can do many things, like speaking Spanish and Mandarin! He's very smart and is always so kind to others.

Likely the most successful of the contenders, Kevin Olusola is a Grammy winner and has a #1 Billboard debut album with his group Pentatonix. He is a classically trained musician who invented Cello-boxing. Not only is he already amazing, but he is also constantly coming up with new sounds and beats to improve himself and his group. It's noteworthy that he's also becoming quite an amazing singer.

6 Skiller

Skiller is known as the fastest beatboxer in the world. He won the 2012 World Beatbox Battle Championship, with the final battle against Alem. His beatboxing is unique. He has his own style that no one can copy and is able to perform some of the hardest beatboxing techniques in the world. He is very entertaining and just knows how to battle.

How original are you as a beatboxer? How do you push the limits of the voice? This Bulgarian embodies all of this. Amazing...

He is the world champion in beatboxing! I think that his beats and skills are better than Adam Rupp's. Skiller should be in 1st place! I'm really proud of him.

7 Kenny Muhammad

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

He is literally a god rapper!

8 Beardyman

I don't understand why he is so underrated. 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 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.

Sorry, but for raw close sound, I think he's the best. Beardyman is a genius at using his beatbox for composition.

9 Rahzel

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

If Your Mother Only Knew, and that's all I've got to say.

Old school, who deserves a lot of respect!

10 Eklips

The best, best flow.

The Contenders
11 Tom Thum

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

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

He shows a unique and brilliant understanding of sounds and can take vocals to levels one can't even imagine. From a sitar to a didgeridoo, this guy can mimic everything. Plus, he is a good showman. He definitely needs to be at the top.

12 Napom

NaPoM is cleaner in most of his battles than Reeps One, so he should at least be above him. Though Adam Rupp is really good, he doesn't know as many sounds and isn't as fast as some of the others. Also, Adam Rupp is just a band performer!

Napom should be number 1 because his beatboxing is not just fast sounds like most of the beatbox that I have heard. His beatboxing is heavy but AWESOME! And I have never heard something that sounds better.

Definitely one of the most composed, structured, and melodic beatboxers, with filthy bass that'll make your bones thrum.

13 KrnFx

He can go really fast and is so cool and has fresh sounds. Sometimes he even sounds like he is rapping and beatboxing at the exact same time!

This guy is just crazy. His style is pretty sick, and his sound effects just make it even better!

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

14 Reeps One

Hands down, one of the best beatboxers that will ever live. He has changed the beatbox scene, setting new expectations and heights to beat. He brought something new to the table with his Dubstep style of beatboxing. He is someone who cannot be compared. As of right now, I see him as the reigning king and the one that changed the game of beatboxing forever. Check him out!

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.

Why is Reeps number 11? He's literally one of the best around. He makes his own music in his head and vocalizes it out in his own, diverse way, and he's amazing at it.

15 Shawn Lee

Kick it up, Shawn Lee! Major drop for life. Loved the pestle and mortar too!

Shawn Lee is the best!

He's the best ever...

16 Codfish

Codfish literally won world championships for his beatboxing. The dude is crazy. Have you heard the low beats he can hit?

He is the best beatboxer I have ever seen. I always watch his videos. He is amazing.

The best of the best.

17 Alem

Consider this: Alem won 2nd place in 2012 at the 3rd Beatbox World Championship. He is now the current 4th Beatbox World Champion 2015, and the Beatbox Tag Team Champion 2015 with BMG.

Other Awards won:

- Grand Beatbox Battle 2013 - 2nd placer
- French Beatbox Champion 2013
- French Beatbox Battle 2011 - 2nd placer

A new generation/new school beatboxer, Alem brings different kinds of variations to his beat. I think he is the best, unlike other beatboxers like Tom Thum, Dave Crowe, etc. They often stick to old school styles, sometimes do not change their routines, and use mainstream techniques that are very predictable.

I just saw Alem in a battle. He is just amazing. He can definitely destroy anyone. He has all styles, and I think you guys will notice that he is different. He defeated Skiller and Napom because he is the beatbox god!

He's just amazing! Way better than Rahzel! No disrespect. I know he was a saint, but this is a new generation.

18 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 are 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 cords.

Dave Crowe is the best! He is the God of beatboxing! He deserves to be #1. He can do dubstep beatboxing without any machine, he's funny and brave enough to do street performances.

19 Dharni

This guy makes his own sounds and he's also called the Beatbox Professor. I'm pretty sure someone who's called that has got to be in the top 5 at the very least. He's won against many beatboxers, including some of the ones who are placed above him in this list.

Dharni at 21? Haha. The King of Musicality and two-time GBBB champion. I'm sure the person who voted for Adam Rutt and the other low-class beatboxers doesn't know anything about beatboxing.

This guy is really good!

20 Bunnyf1uff

This guy inspired me to become a beatboxer myself. I've grown a lot listening to his beatboxing. I haven't even met him, and he's done so much for me. Just THE BEST.

This guy is ridiculous. Give him a chance, and he will rip the stage.

21 Neil Rey Garcia Llanes

Amazing man! 10 beats at once.

22 Genesis

This Filipino beatboxing champion moved to Sydney from Manila, Philippines, without any knowledge of the English language. Having discovered beatboxing at a young age, he grew to be one of the best and became a finalist in Australia's Got Talent 2012.

"Just awesome."
- Dannii Minogue, Australian singer-songwriter, talent competition judge, actress, television and radio personality, and fashion designer

"I just don't know how you can beat that, how you can better that, unless you're blowing out of a lot of holes at the same time... I think it's total genius, what you can do. It's very impressive."
- Kyle Sandilands, Australian radio and TV personality

"Absolutely excellent. I cannot wait to see what you do next."
- Brian McFadden, Irish singer-songwriter

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 his performance in the finals. He can really dance! Who knew he could sing, dance, and beatbox?! Totally my favorite ever!

23 oZealous

This guy is a beast! He knows how to keep his rhythm going without fail. Knowing he can beatbox at rapid speed is amazing!

No one beats this guy. He's just mind-blowing.

Best and mind-blowing! He is amazing!

24 B-Art

His inward bass is incredible. Love his style!

He is so talented! His skills are awesome.

His inward bass is insane!

25 Doug E. Fresh

He put beatboxing on the map! One of the originals! "The Show" with Slick Rick was a hit back in the day and still is one of my favorite songs to this day!

Respect! Without the past, there would be no future. Without the old schools, there would be no cool new schools of modern beatboxing like today!

He has a good voice.
