With NBA All-Star Weekend in full effect, hip hop’s favorite drummer, Travis Barker, was busy shooting a new video.
MTV News was in Hollywood, CA on set with the Blink-182 drummer, frequent hip-hop remixer and collaborator, Travis Barker’s video for “Can The Drummer Get Some.” The song features the Game, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and Swizz Beatz and is the lead single for Give the Drummer Some, due in stores March 15, 2011.
In the clip, besides a surly dude with a megaphone asking people to move back to their posts, can be seen the Game, Swizz Beatz and Rick Ross while Barker can be heard off to the side, drumming. Although Barker has said that there will be no one genre on Give the Drummer Some, it is loaded with a who’s who of hip-hop guests. “I just love music,” Barker told Spinner.com last year. “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…” Only some of the rap acts appearing Barker’s first solo album include Drake, Kid Cudi, Eminem, Clipse, RZA and Beanie Sigel. “Everyone on the album is someone I was blessed to come in contact at one point or another in my life,” Barker told MTV News of the album that is at least two years in the making.
Another song from the project that leaked via behind the scenes footage from its video shoot is “Come N Get Some,” which features the Clipse. Earlier this week, Barker revealed to MTV News that a new Blink 182 album would be finished by early summer and hinted at plans to tour with Kid Cudi. There are also plans to release a Let the Drummer Get Wicked Mixtape via DJ Whoo Kid’s Radioplanet.TV website on February 21.
