Travis Barker talks solo set with Lil Wayne, Rick Ross
Remember at the Grammys where it was Eminem, Lil Wayne, Drake and... Travis Barker? This is a little like that: the tatted Blink-182 drummer has opened his mouth about his first solo set, which will feature Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, RZA, The Game, Swizz Beatz, Beanie Sigel (and... Slipknot's Corey Taylor).
So what does a drummer's solo album sound like?
"I'm not singing or being an MC or anything," Barker told Spinner. "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... 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. It's been really fun and interesting up till now."
