Happy Birthday, Doug E. Fresh! The Human Beatbox turns 51 years old today (Sept. 17).

Fresh is easily one of the most recognizable beatboxers of all time. What a beat machine could do with a few taps of a finger, the Harlem, N.Y. native could do with his tongue and voicebox.

And he's dropped classic tracks like "The Show" and "La Di Da Di," his collaboration with master storyteller Slick Rick. Then there are his solo efforts like "All the Way to Heaven" and "Keep Risin’ to the Top," a track featured on his sophomore album, The World's Greatest Entertainer.

The Human Beatbox is still gong strong. He's seemingly always performing, Doug E. is a regular fixture at festivals and awards shows.
