If you used to frequent college hiphop shows in NYC during the late 90’s and early 00’s it’s very likely you’re familiar with Afra. He was the extremely polite Japanese beatboxer that would get on stage and people would be like “Who the f*ck is that? Where’s Kweli!?” But then everyone would shutup once this kid started beatboxing. He’s really impressive live. I’ve always enjoyed his performances way more than Rahzel or even Scratch. I stumbled onto some videos you can check out. I know I put up too many but if you’re going to check at least one out, check out the bottom one, about 25 seconds in, he starts recreating the beat to Lumidee’s Never Leave You (Uh-ooOh). I would have never imagined that was possible.
