Graffiti Verite' 5 (GV5): The Sacred Elements of Hip-Hop Documentary Video Cover


Los Angeles, CA -- Long before (and after) the tired beat machines that used to crank out mechanical, predigested, synthetic, "soulless" percussive rhythms, there was the  singular and quintessential  “Human Beat Boxer.”


The “Human Beat Boxer” stood before and alongside the MC in the center of the Cypher  and mesmerized the faithful with his or her blended virtuoso street performance. Lying  within the magical toolbox of the Beat Boxer are an array of personalized and unique mixed bag of  clicks, drum sounds, scratches, bass lines beats, trumpets, cymbals, guitar riffs, screams and other  indescribable noizes..


The audiences' soulful head-nod is the first affirmation of the death-of-silence which is always the first casualty, whenever "Tha Show" is in effect.


Combining these dynamic throat-based effects is to create a “wall of sound” that pays a distinct & living homage to the sacred “Boom-Bap,” which is the literal  heart & soul, and the underbelly of ole' school Hip-Hop.


The job of  the Human Beat Boxer is to compose the flawless soundscape “the music"“ with which he and the  MC together can rock the mics  creating the perfect circle.


GV8 THE FIFTH ELEMENT: THE ART OF THE BEAT BOXER documentary is directed  by multi award-winning indie filmmaker Bob Bryan.


Take a glimpse at the art form & peep the  process from the humble master Beat Box practitioners.   It's their time to shine...
