Travis Barker in the remix – Los Angeles Times

The Los Angeles Times has a little piece on Travis Barker’s new gig.  For those of you who don’t know/remember him, Barker was once the drummer of Blink 182.

I know, tons of street cred, right?  But seriously.  He’s always been a talented drummer and recently has gained some notoriety for having survived a plane crash with his musical partner, DJ AM.

As well, he’s been slowly been getting more and more into hip hop.  Besides performing as TRV$DJAM, Barker has become the latest YouTube celebrity.  What all started as his jamming along to Soulja Boy on the drums (terrible choice, I know) and innocently uploaded has become a huge hit.  The video, posted below, has 20 million hits. That’s just absurd (nothing compared to the 100 million views this unrelated video has), but just goes to show how much the internet has changed things.

Since this video came out, he’s been approached by other big hip hop stars to ‘remix’ their songs by drumming along to them.  He’s done it for Flo Rida, Busta Rhymes, and Rhianna.  Only one out of those is someone I’d consider hip hop, but that’s besides the point.
