Breath Control: History of the Human Beat Box

A definitive hip hop documentary classic.

The history of the art of beatboxing, from its early origins in the chants of African pygmies, through to its more contemporary urban manifestation, with interviews from exponents of the art such as, Doug E. Fresh, the Fat Boys and Biz Markie.

Due to 14 years of legal wrangling over music clearances and Fair Use briefs, the film is not commercially available.
