Travis Barker may have spent a career drumming in the pop-punk band Blink-182, but he’s no stranger to hip-hop. He’s friends with artists from across the genre, as evidenced by his new single “100” featuring four of the West Coast’s hottest stars—Kid Ink, Ty Dolla $ign, IamSu!, and Tyga.
“100,” which hits iTunes on Friday, is the first single off Barker’s upcoming collaborations album. While premiering the song on Power 106’s “The Cruz Show,” Barker said that the project is about 70% finished and includes appearances from OG Maco, Vic Mensa, Travi$ Scott, and Nipsey Hussle.
“I’ve been blessed to collaborate with a lot of my favorite artists,” he said. “I don’t work with artists unless I love what they’re doing…I jump genres and that’s what keeps me happy.”
Music isn’t the only thing on Travis’ plate these days—he’s also working on a book entitled Can I Say: Living Large, Cheating Death, and Drums, Drums, Drums, about his time in the spotlight.
