  • (Beatboxing)

  • (Beatboxing ends)

  • Are you ready?

  • (Cheers and applause)

  • Are you ready?

  • Ed Cage: Yeah, yeah, yeah!

  • (Beatboxing)

  • (Laughter)

  • EC: Y'all like that? Let me show you how we used to do it --

  • NP: Get it pops, go ahead.

  • EC: ... when I was growing up in the '90s.

  • (Beatboxing)

  • (Beatboxing ends)

  • (Laughter)

  • (Beatboxing)

  • NP: Pops, pops, pops, pops, pops, pops,

  • hold up, hold up, hold up, hold up!

  • Oh my God.

  • OK, he's trying to battle me.

  • Hold on, right now, hold on.

  • Do you remember when you used to beatbox me to sleep?

  • EC: Yeah, yeah, I remember.

  • That's when she was a little baby.

  • We would do something like this.

  • (Beatboxing)

  • NP: I remember that.

  • (Beatboxing)

  • NP: All right, pops, pops, pops, chill out, chill out.

  • Hold up, hold up, hold up.

  • EC: Y'all remember the video.

  • This is like a little payback or something

  • for 50 million people calling me the loser.

  • NP: Hold up, hold up.

  • But a lot of people out there don't really know what beatboxing is,

  • where it started from.

  • EC: Right, right.

  • NP: Where it came from.

  • So why don't you give them a little history --

  • just a tickle -- a bit of history of where it comes from.

  • EC: Beatbox started here in New York.

  • (Cheers)

  • That's right, that's right. New York, New York!

  • Everybody like, "Yeah!"

  • Well, we from St. Louis.

  • (Laughter)

  • NP: Now you can put y'all hands down.

  • (Laughter)

  • EC: But beatbox started here in New York.

  • What you would have is that, when we would go to parties,

  • you would have the DJ and you would have the rapper.

  • But because I don't have electricity coming out of me,

  • we had to emulate what the beats was doing.

  • So when you would see the beatboxer,

  • you would see us over to the side.

  • Then you would see a rapper, and when the rapper began to rap,

  • we would do a simple beat,

  • because back then the beats were simple --

  • (Beatboxing)

  • or --

  • (Beatboxing)

  • Those were simple beats.

  • But now, you got folks that want to do all type of stuff

  • with their beats now,

  • and they want to humiliate their father,

  • which is not right when you want to humiliate the person

  • that take care of you, pay all your tuition, (Nicole laughs)

  • especially when you have 50 million people

  • that just go around and call you "the loser."

  • Well, I'm taking that to heart.

  • But now we do something different in our house,

  • so we have these jam sessions,

  • and our jam sessions consist of us jamming in church.

  • You know, in church, we'll look at each other like,

  • (Beatboxing)

  • (Laughter)

  • and we'll text the beat to each other.

  • Or we'll be in the kitchen cooking,

  • road trips, airports.

  • NP: Standing right there in the corner, "Aw, Dad -- listen to that."

  • (Beatboxing)

  • Naw, I'm kidding. But you know what?

  • We're talking all about this jam session and everything.

  • EC: Yeah.

  • NP: Why don't we give them a little peek, just a tiny bit of our jam session?

  • NP: Y'all want to hear some jam session? EC: Y'all ready for a jam session?

  • (Cheers)

  • NP: Sorry? I can't hear you.

  • (Cheers)

  • Yeah! Kick it, pops!

  • (Beatboxing)

  • (Applause)

  • (Beatboxing)

  • (Beatboxing ends)

  • (Applause)

  • NP: I'm getting ready to go!

  • EC: Y'all ready? Everybody stand up! Come on, everybody stand up!

  • Get on up! Come on, stretch!

  • (Beatboxing)

  • (Beatboxing ends)

  • NP: That's it.

  • (Cheers and applause)
