The Watts rapper is an essential piece of West Coast rap” – Pitchfork

Los Angeles street-rap weirdo 03 Greedo is one of the most exciting and inventive voices around right now, and he already released one of the best rap albums of the year” – Stereogum

The EP:

03 Greedo and Travis Barker share Meet The Drummerstheir new collaborative EP. Though Meet The Drummers marks the first connection between the two SoCal artists, Greedo and Barker are a compatible pair. Barker’s production, marked by bright keyboards and rattling bass, proves to be the perfect canvas for Greedo’s abstract, melodic warble. The 5-track EP’s title highlights a parallel between Barker and Greedo, playing off Greedo’s frequent shoutouts to his hometown Drummer Gang and Barker’s status as one of music’s most eclectic and productive percussionists. Featuring the recent single “Cellout,” Meet The Drummers is available everywhere via Alamo Records.

Growing up in extreme poverty in the Central L.A. city of Watts, 03 Greedo rose to prominence in late 2017 on the back of cult hits like Mafia Business.” Last year, Greedo’s unique sound reached a national audience, as he flashed his supernatural rhyming ability on the mixtape The Wolf of Grape Street and flexed his artistic muscles on the 27-track God Level, which boasts the Lil Uzi Vert-featuring “Never Bend” (Remix). In April, Greedo released the Noisey-produced documentary Project Genius: The Story of 03 Greedo, which chronicles his rise and his importance to his Watts community. Earlier this year, Greedo shared  Still Summer In The Projects, produced and executive-produced by Mustard, hosting two well-received singles: the Rolling Stone-premiered strip-club anthem “Wasted,” and the Billboard– and The FADER-premiered breezy windows-down jam “Trap House,” which Pitchfork called “a song that should have Greedo’s presence felt this summer.” Featuring appearances from YG, Shoreline Mafia, and TrillianoStill Summer In The Projects is available to stream everywhere via Alamo/Interscope.

Travis Barker, one of music’s most prolific names, continues to explore genres and mediums ranging from punk rock to hip hop and pop. Previously working with the likes of RZA, Ty Dolla $ign, Run The Jewels, Kid Cudi, Trippie Redd, Halsey, and more. He recently collaborated with Lil Nas X on “F9mily,” a track from the “Old Town Road” artist’s 7 EP.
