The Fat Boys were the first group to release a full a cappella track consisting only of beatboxing and rapping. It is the sixth track on their first album Fat Boys (1984) with its corresponding title "Human Beat Box". The following two albums each contained a similar a cappella track, The Fat Boys Are Back with "Human Beat Box Part II" and Big & Beautiful with "Beat Box Part III".

The Fat Boys's popularity was very high in particular in the USA and Europe but also worldwide with the release of several singles, commercials, and even feature films etc. while in the beginning Doug E Fresh was rather limited to the US market.
