Lil Nas X has another unexpected collaboration in the works with none other than Travis Barker.
In an interview SPIN published yesterday (June 12), Barker opened up about his own creative process while working with rappers like 03 Greedo. Later on, the Blink-182 drummer revealed that he will appear on the viral Country-Rap star’s forthcoming EP.
“I have a song with Lil Nas X that’s going to be on his EP,” Barker shares. “He came to the studio, and I played a couple [of] beats that I thought would be stuff he was into. Then I played something on accident where he stopped and was like, ‘What is that? I’ve got to have that.’ It was actually an idea I had for the blink album.”
Since his song began its climb to the top of the Billboard charts, Nas X has enticed the masses with his high-profile collaborations with Billy Ray Cyrus and Young Thug on the “Old Town Road” remixes. However, it seems like we’re getting a whole new wave of collaborative efforts on his upcoming EP, which may be titled 7.
“’7′ the EP! next month,” Lil Nas X tweeted on May 18.
Aside from the vague announcement about his EP, the Atlanta native doesn’t offer up any other details about the project. Nas X has been spotted a handful of major artists recently like Tory Lanez, Usher, YBN Cordae and more. However, the only confirmed guest so far is Barker.
Later on in his interview, the veteran drummer also reveals that he’s been working on a rock-based album with Trippie Redd. Read the entire conversation with Travis Barker here.
