Album: Give The Drummer Some (2011)


  • Travis Barker's address book appears to include a whole host of the leading lights of the Hip-Hop community and many of them feature on his debut solo album, Give The Drummer Some. This track features four of them - Yelawolf, Twista, Busta Rhymes and Lil Jon - and Barker told Musicradar.com how it came together: "This one was me and my engineer, Kevin Bivona, messing around with beats in Studio B of my place in North Hollywood. Busta Rhymes was the first one to rap on it. He did his verse and totally set the bar. Then I sent it to Twista and Yelawolf. I think I just had Busta's verse and Lil Jon came in and did his thing, made it happening. Lil Jon's like family, so it's always fun working with him.
    It's cool to have all of these people on the same track. It's not as complicated as it sounds, really. It's fun, and everybody feeds off of what somebody else does."
