The Game Teams Up With Travis Barker For AOL Sessions

by admin ·

The Game and Travis BarkerHe may not have the No. 1 album anymore, but The Game is still forging ahead by teaming up with former Blink 182 member Travis Barker for a hot AOL Music Session (see 60 second preview here).

Barker, with one fractured arm in a sling, acts as the music powerhouse behind Game’s Doctor’s Advocate lyrics as the two reinterpret the tunes from the set that opened at No. 1 last week. Ironically, well at least slightly, Barker’s new band +44 also bowed their new set, When Your Heart Stops Beating, at No. 10 last week as well.

Barker, currently on tour with his band, broke his arm wile shooting the lead video for the new release.

The Sessions performance is set to premiere December 1st on AOL. An audio version will also be available exclusively on iTunes on December 28th.

In related news, The Game, who has dubbed himself “the face of Los Angeles” is gearing up for a European tour set to kick off in Manchester on December 4 and hit other yet-to-be-confirmed major cities throughout the month.

Thanks to Matt Conway for the goods.

“Snoop is a rat,” Knight told Page Six. “He’s a police informer. This is the only guy who never goes to jail no matter what. I don’t like rats.”
