Travis Barker - Give the Drummer Some: No no no

Why in the name of Zeus' butthole would anyone let Travis Barker do ANYTHING unsupervised? Never mind brush his teeth or put his trousers on the right way around. Now he's made a (supposed) Hip Hop album? What is wrong with the world?
Blink 182 is not exactly the most hardcore of bands. Hell, they're not even the most hardcore of little-boy-punk-wannabe bands. They're a joke. At least when they started out they knew this. Now they want to be taken seriously and are off on their own missions, so we're stuck with the drummer in some sort of dream world where he's gangsta. Tattoos do not make you a gangsta. I have plenty, and I'm a lady.

Barker's tragic attempt (entitled Give the Drummer Some) is only marginally better than K-Fed's train wreck. It's embarrassing for everyone involved, since the man has managed to lure some pretty big names in Hip Hop to deliver lyrics for the tracks. 

Perhaps most tragic of all is the fact that he can't seem to shake the fact that he's a drummer, bringing it into lyrics, song titles and the title of the album. A departure this is not. It should be ignored, hidden, burned. But certainly not mar one's iPod playlist.
