Travis Barker Jams with RZA, Raekwon, Tom Morello in 'Carry It'
On Travis Barker's first solo album "Give the Drummer Some," the blink-182 drummer recruits a number of all-star guests, including Wu-Tang Clan's RZA and Raekwon, as well as Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello on "Carry It."

The video for "Carry It," released yesterday (Nov. 15), starts off with a low frequency recording that might make you check your speakers before a turntable scratch welcomes "Bobby Digital" rapping behind neon lights.
Travis Barker's drum roll-in between verses is reminiscent of Jay-Z's "D.O.A. (Death of AutoTune)," as Raekwon comes in making the comparison that he's the "John Bonham of Led Zeppelin."
Toward the end, Morello does an all-out guitar solo showing he's not just an innovative player but he can straight-up shred as well.
Other guests on the album will include Rick Ross, Swizz Beatz and Lil Wayne, who can now make an appearance in the next video for Barker's project -- if Barker's lucky.
"Give the Drummer Some," which Barker produced with help from the Neptunes and DJ Khalil, is slated to hit stores in February 2011 on Interscope.
