Amazing G-Funk Beat-Boxer!

Every so often Youtube serves up some real slept on talent.  The homeless beatbox king “Red” turned up behind the Heavyweight Art Gallery in December and has been an internet phenom ever since.

According to his latest video on Youtube he is getting his shit together and has a single coming out in February.  Put me down for an album.

Listen to this one with your headphones on and the volume up:

Unbelievable how a homeless person has way more talent than most of today's popular hip hop artists! After someone posted this video to YouTube he was picked up by HVW8.

More info on Red and HVW8 at

Here is the remix of that video in song format:

If you like the remix you can get a copy of the MP3 HERE:
