Published Jul 03, 2019Rap figure 03 Greedo has joined forces with punk hero Travis Barker for a new collaborative EP. The West Coast MC and Blink-182 drummer will deliver the five-track Meet the Drummers this Friday (July 5) through Alamo Records.
"A lot of people are gonna wonder if the EP is on some rock'n'roll or if it's taking me out my element, but it's kinda like Travis stepped into my world for this one," Greedo explained in a statement. "It's gonna shock a lot of people when they hear it. It's just about putting more great music out into the world. This is just a preview of the music Travis and I are about to start working on coming soon."
A first taste of the collaboration can be heard below with "Cellout."
Greedo added, "Recording with Travis was work just like any other time, with me going in on every song. Once we were done with the project and had a friendly relationship was when I really got to appreciate the moment [of working with someone I grew up a fan of]. It trips me out still when I talk to him while I'm locked up. He checks in on how I'm doing. It blew my mind when I put him on my visiting list to come see me."
Last year, 03 Greedo was sentenced to 20 years in prison on drug trafficking and gun possession charges. Earlier this year, he released Still Summer in the Projects.
Barker and his Blink-182 bandmates are currently on a summer tour. They've also shared singles "Happy Days," "Generational Divide" and "Blame It on My Youth" ahead of a forthcoming new album.
