Douglas E. Davis (born September 17, 1966), better known by the stage name Doug E. Fresh, is an American rapper, record producer, and beat boxer, also known as the Human Beat Box. One of the earliest recorded beat boxers, Fresh is able to accurately imitate drum machines and various special effects using only his mouth.
He made his recording debut in 1983, as part of the Boo-Dah Bliss Crew (with Spoonie Gee and DJ Spivey) on the Top Flight Records single "Pass the Boo-Dah." He gained greater recognition the following year—appearing in Beat Street, backing the Treacherous Three. Later that same year, Fresh released his first records as a solo artist: "Just Having Fun" and "Original Human Beat Box."
