Drummer and Blink 182 member Travis Barker has revealed to Spinner.com that he has secured a number of Hip Hop artists for his debut solo album.
When Blink 182 took a break from music several years ago, Barker began to work with a number of artists in the Hip Hop community and his penchant for Hip Hop will be quite clear when his album is released. Game, Beanie Sigel, Lil Wayne, and Rick Ross are just a few of the artists who will be featured on Barker’s solo album.
“I’m not singing or being an emcee or anything,” Barker told Spinner.com. “Over the last five years, when Blink wasn’t around, I played a lot by myself or did a whole bunch of stuff with just me. Whether I was playing with T.I. or doing whatever, it just opened another world for me.”
It is still unclear what Barker’s solo album will be titled or when it will be released.
“I’m rounding it out right now,” said Barker. “I just love music. The more I can be around it the better, so with my album it’s no one genre. It goes from everything from punk rock to Hip Hop to some electro stuff on there to a metal song with Corey Taylor from Slipknot. It’s been really fun and interesting up till now.”
