HIP-HOPPINGTON The skys the limit when it comes to daddy-daughter bonding activities, from ice cream dates to aerobatic plane rides.

For St. Louis artist Nicole Paris and her father, that bonding method is beatboxing.

It turns out Paris dad taught her everything he knows about beatboxing. But, as is often the case with parents and children, the younger generations tend to outstrip their parents eventually, whether its in smarts, skills, talents or any combination thereof.

To prove her superior skills, father and daughter set up two head-to-head beatbox battles. In the first part of the second video battle, its clear they both have exceptional talents using only their mouths and lungs. But its the second round that really sets Paris apart. I mean, you know she means business when the glasses come off.

Not only does Paris have more skills of the beatboxing variety, but she also injects so much personality in her performance, including mid-beatboxing trash talk, that its nearly impossible not to be completely mesmerized. Trust me, you will want to watch to the end. (If four minutes is too much for you, start at the 1:27 mark.)

However, I would argue that Paris beatboxing isnt the best part of the video; its her fathers obvious pride in his daughter. Just watch his face beam as she completely destroys him during the battle.

You can watch their first battle from last year here.
