Travis Barker came through to the Power 106 Perrier® & Juice Studios with this family by his side to chop it up with The Cruz Show about the impact music has had on their lives and how Barker’s children are now entering the music industry.
Famed drummer of Blink 182 and with credits under his belt for collabs with Lil Wayne, Cypress Hill, Ty Dolla $ign, and more, Travis has positioned himself as one of the greatest in not only Rock music but in hip-hop as well. Introducing his family to the music industry naturally seemed like the next move as both of his kids, Landon and Alabama Barker, are now currently working on music projects.
At ages 12 (Alabama) and 15 (Landon) the mini Barkers are gearing up to be the next faces in music and it’s something that both of them are taking seriously. While their styles vary between the two, Alabama shares that she is a fan of all throwback slow jams made by the likes of Whitney Houston, New Edition, Mariah Carey, and Bobby Brown, while Landon shares that he was inspired by the late rapper XXXTentacion.
The Barkers also speak about some of the benefits of growing up in an unorthodox upbringing with celeb neighbors and famous close friends.Travis says:
I guess it’s what they’ve been around too since they were young. Touring with Wayne and Rick Ross at a young age, or Rancid or Blink. They’ve just been around the industry and then our neighborhood where we’ve lived for 15-16 years has now changed so much. And we do have like, you know, Kourtney’s [Kardashian] like a super-good friend, she’s right down the street from us. Khloe [Kardashian], Master P lives across the street form us and I’ve known P for forever.
Landon also states that he would like to collab with L.A. rapper Blueface and Alabama talks about the all-plant based and “non-homework” school that both Barkers attend.
