Hip-Hop Loves Travis Barker

The Los Angeles Times caught up with Travis Barker to chat about his explosive entry into the world of hip-hop and remixes. In case you’ve been unplugged for the last year, it all started with a video posted on YouTube, a slamming version of Travis drumming to Soulja Boy’s “Crank That (Soulja Boy).” With 17.5 million views under his sticks, Barker has become the go-to drummer for other hip-hop-oriented artists as well, including in-demand turntablist DJ AM. The two have joined forces as TRV$DJAM and will be putting out an album (!) and touring.
