Beatboxing has a wonderfully raw, human texture, one that Saul Williams used so transcendently in the 1998 singe "Twice the First Time."

When beatboxing reinvents itself in this direction, when it harnesses its originality, it might be considered the "fifth element." But until then, it will have to line up with the other unrecognized hiphop elements like fashion, hype marketing, and blunt rolling.

 Is Blake Lewis any good at beatboxing? - By Jonah Weiner - Slate Magazine
His love of this hip-hop-derived technique, in which you use your mouth to simulate a drum machine, a turntable, a sampler, or any combination of the three, was on display at his very first audition, when he decorated an already florid rendition of Seal's "Crazy" with some rhythmic stammers and feigned turntable scratching.
Beatboxing has been a part of Lewis' performances more or less every week since, and in an Idol season when gimmicks have often upstaged singing (see Sanjaya Malakar's hairstyles and Antonella Barba's soft-core-porn portfolio), Lewis' gimmick has proved the most enduring, and the most virtuosic.
For Fresh, beatboxing wasn't merely a way to mimic a drum machine—it was a way to create funkier percussion than a drum machine ever could.
