Give the Drummer Some is the first solo record by blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. Barker had earlier announced that the album would be slated for a September 2010 release, but was later pushed back, with the album being released on March 15, 2011.http The album, released under Interscope Records, was produced by the drummer himself, alongside DJ Khalil, The Neptunes, Swizz Beatz, RZA, Pete Rock, DJ Premier, Chuck Inglish, Kool Kojak, Dr. Luke, Benny Blanco, Dr. Dre, Eric Valentine and A-Trak.
The album title itself, is a reference to a track by the Ultramagnetic MC's of the same name, which in turn derives from James Brown's "Funky Drummer".
It was first announced by Barker himself that the album would be of "no-one genre", indicating that the album wouldn't be based on hip hop, punk rock, unlike his previous remixes & collaborations with famous rappers/artists.
Guests to be confirmed to collaborate and featured are: Slaughterhousehttp, The Cool Kids, RZA, Ludacris, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, T.I., Game, Raekwon, Tom Morello, Slash, Steve Aoki, Pharrell, Clipse, Kid Cudi, Yelawolf, Snoop Dogg, Drake, Lupe Fiasco,http Swizz Beatz, Bun B and Tech N9ne.
Barker confirmed in an interview that there will not be any collaborations with Mark Hoppus and Tom Delonge from blink-182 as he thought it would be wrong to have the first new blink-182 song on his album, and that the song will be released separately as a single before the album is released in June/July 2011.
The tracklisting was revealed on February 25, 2011.httphttp
The bonus track included in the deluxe edition of the album, "Misfits" which features Steve Aoki contains a hidden track titled "RISE N GRIND" in between the silence-pause between 4:01 - 8:17 mins. The track can only be made audible by increasing its frequency.
