Many fans of his work with Blink-182 have recently expressed that they don't particularly care for his solo work. Barker responded by calling his critics and saddened fans "closed-minded... Nazi bitches."
On his new album, Barker explored a new direction by venturing into hip-hop music. Among the hip-hop guests
on the album are RZA, Raekwon, The Game, Swizz Beats, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Pharrell, Lupe Fiasco, Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, E-40, Twista, Busta Rhymes, Lil Jon, Kid Cudi, Tech N9ne, and Bun B, among others
Travis had a few words to say about his fans' thoughts.
"I got people who were mad when I played the Grammys with Wayne, Drake and Eminem. That's one of the biggest highlights of my life, and they'll be like, 'Stop playing this rap shit!' You know what I mean? It's like, 'Fuck you, man!'"
Well said, Travis.
Perhaps his fans shouldn't be so picky and try to appreciate Barker's new material and open their minds to it.
