It seems to require the performer to possess a strong sense of time, internal rhythm and the ability to rap.
Share your favorite clips and your opinion on it.
I don't know much a bout the music biz application of beat-boxing, but I thing in general sense most drummers can vocalize drum sounds. I particularly good at it ( its so hard to be humble...). Its a fun thing to do and I've done a lot of it on many recordings, in bit and pieces.
For me though, its greatest application is to vocalize stuff I'm trying to do on the kit, and use it as a practice tool. Works great.
