@carrotisland: It was Darren “The Human Beat Box” Robinson. He was a member of the rap group called “The Fat Boys”. When Robinson was growing up, his family could not afford a drum set so he learned how to make percussion-like sounds with his mouth. That is where he got his nickname “The Human Beat Box”. He was also known as Buff Love, Doc Nice, and The Ox that rocks.
The Fat Boys were previously called Disco 3. While on a tour, the trio’s manager received a $350 hotel bill for “extra breakfasts”. He complained about the trio eating so much and told them they should change their name to The Fat Boys, so they did.
In 1995, The Human Beat Box was diagnosed with lymphedema. He died on December 10th of that year. You can view his beatbox videos on youtube.
