VIDEO: History of hip hop - beatbox style

Two words, simply amazing! French beatboxer (?) Eklips takes us through the history of hip hop in four minutes just using his vocal talents, and it's utterly stunning.

Recorded for Trace Urban TV in France, the way he manages to segue between clips and samples, including extraordinarily accurate renditions of the rappers, is worth the admission price alone.

And seeing as that admission price is absolutely free, thanks to the powers of the world wide web, we're very lucky people indeed.

Now, it's up to you to list all of the songs he features... That's a task and a half...

We'll help; there's definitely a bit of Jump Around by House of Pain and Cypress Hill's Insane in the Membrane. That should start you off.
