Love Travis Barker. Here's a recent update from The Fader.com:

How Blink-182’s Travis Barker became rap’s favorite drummer
The Blink-182 member talks about balancing life in a classic pop-punk band and producing for artists including 03 Greedo, Lil Nas X, and Playboy Cardi.


In a world of constant line-up changes, super-catchy hooks, and relentless dick jokes, Travis Barker is Blink-182’s renaissance man. His love of hip-hop has long been known: back in 2011, he released solo album Give The Drummer Some, featuring Pharrell, Snoop, and Kid Cudi among others, but in 2019 he’s been on a real hot streak. In the last month alone he’s produced a song on Lil Nas X’s debut EP [the spiky “F9mily”] and dropped a whole joint project with the incarcerated L.A. rapper 03 Greedo. Meet The Drummers is a trap-heavy release that acts as both a showcase for Greedo’s undeniable melodic talents, as well as Barker’s ability to produce outside of his pop-punk comfort zone.

Right now he’s on tour with Blink-182, a tour that hit the headlines last week, the night after this interview was conducted, when supporting act Lil Wayne said the crowd was “not my swag” and walked off-stage mid-way through a set (a representative for Barker did not respond to The FADER’s request for comment following the incident). During our interview, Barker discussed celebrating 20 years of Blink-182’s Enema Of The State and what it’s like being one of the very few people in music who can say they have worked with both Tom DeLonge and Trippie Redd.
