Travis Barker is going solo! This project has been in the works since August of 2008 (yes 2 full years ago), but as we all recall, he and the late DJ AM were in a plane crash that killed everyone but the two of them. So the delay is understandable!
Barker’s new solo album is sure to impress, and he’s called on the biggest rappers in town to collaborate on it: Eminem, Lil Wayne, Drake, T.I, Pharrell Williams, Snoop Dogg, Lupe Fiasco, and Rick Ross. That, according to XXL magazine.
Barker won’t be singing or rapping on the album—he’s sticking to what he’s good at—the drums. But he’s played on many of his collaborator’s songs and albums in the past. Here, he plays drums on a track for Wale’s 2009 Attention Deficit album. He also handled the percussion in The Game’s “Dope Boys.” And celebrating Famous Star and Straps tenth anniversary last year, he played behind Snoop and Pharrell. The album, which is still untitled, is due out in October.
We’ll be buying this simply because of the impressive lineup he’s recruited!
