Houston's own Paul Wall recently talked about working with Travis Barker on his upcoming album and how he says, Barker is great at hip hop production. "That's what a lot of people are assuming [as it being rock], but his Hip-Hop production is amazing," he said in an interview. "You wouldn't even guess that the worlds most popular/talented drummer is producing these tracks. Since he plays the drums, I think he has a different perspective on production. His style is definitely very unique. But I really don't feel that there is a rock sound in the tracks he produced for my album. There is one song called 'Heart of a Hustler' that does have it, but the other six songs he produced don't."
