Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker has shared a new collaboration single with Lil Wayne and Rick Ross called “Gimme Brain.” The song marks the launch of Barker’s new label DTA Records, an imprint of Elektra.
“I wanted a label partner that I trusted with true artist development,” Travis Barker said of Elektra in a statement. “As an artist, it’s important to me that an artist’s vision is protected at all costs. It’s crucial that I’m able to look an artist in the eye and believe it when I say we can take them from a basement to an arena. Elektra’s track record and belief are proof of that, and I’m stoked to continue to build that legacy together through DTA Records.”
Barker will assist in both artist development and use the label as an outlet for numerous joint projects with other musicians. Check out the single below.
This isn’t the first time Barker has teamed up with Lil Wayne. He previously worked with Wayne and Rozay on his 2011 solo album Give the Drummer Some. The two also toured together this past summer for the Blink-182 and Lil Wayne North American Tour.
