Saturday Night
Beatrhyme Battle
A beatrhymer is a person who can beatbox and rap at the same time.
They combine beats sound effect and rhyme flow into one. This style essentially started with Biz Markie in NYC who is from Long Island with his hit classic "Make the Music with your Mouth Biz" in 1986.
27 years later beatrhyming is starting to take popular form within beatboxing.
Beatrhyme coined and popularized by beatrhyming pioneer Kid Lucky has been popping up in different spots all over America. This is the third year Lamama Theater recognizes beatrhyming as not a next step in beatboxing but a vocal artform all it's own. We promise you have never seen battling like this before!
