Say 'wassup' to Blaring Boomboxes the playful noisemakers who just can't stop rockin' to the bang beat boogie that blares from their speakers day and night. Obsessed with old-school tunes, they love sharing their music with other Moshlings. Just make sure you don't press 'record' as this causes them to lose their memory. Oops!

Retro, noisy, funky.
Skipping rope and bustin' rhymes.
Flat batteries and MP3s.

HipHop is more or less a sidekick character to Blingo and is unable to read the situation where their music is wanted or not.
Blingo is a bit "playful" with HipHop as he tends to be with anyone he is close with. HipHop is part of Blingo's crew, often accompanies him and blares a part of Diggin Ya Lingo. Blingo imitates it as "pleh pleh pleh".
During the bit where they customize Blingo's newly bought car from Sly Chance, HipHop merely carries fuzzy dice as a tool and proceeds to not even hang them up as they are shown tied to HipHop's handle once they sit in the backseat.
HipHop is shown carried around by Blingo in Head Over Heels, who proceeds to head over to Zack Binspin's bin and uses HipHop as a bat against the bin. Zack Binspin is nothing more than a bit alarmed while HipHop is shown in the background having trouble to stand on their legs after the collision.
HipHop is designed after a Boombox, which is a portable music player and tape recorder introduced in the late 70s and is often associated with the 80s. It has a carrying handle, big buttons to eject a tape on top, a signal receiver (the pole with the ball) and the speakers function as eyes. HipHop runs on batteries.
HipHop's singing/speaking voice in Diggin Ya Lingo has been altered with a vocoder and is refered to as "The Cher Effect". It is more emotive and high pitch than "robot voices" tend to be done. When HipHop's mouth moves to produce his singing sound, it is displayed as soundwaves.
- HipHop was first seen in Zack Binspin's song, "Moptop Tweenybop" during Blingo's rap. HipHop was later revealed to be part of Blingo's crew in the song, "Diggin' Ya Lingo".
- HipHop was used as a close up on The Daily Growl on Monday 5 November 2012.
- Their dislike of MP3s refers to boomboxes themselves becoming obsolete with MP3 players replacing them.
