Beatboxing

Beatboxing, a lesser known element of hip hop culture, is the production of bass, percussion, vocal samples and any other noise produced by manipulating your mouth to give the impression you’re producing an entire song without any musical support.

It is probably the least acknowledged element on the hip hop spectrum, although there is a growing community in the subculture if you know where to look.
