Today (July 29) American drummer Travis Barker released a music video for “Let’s Go,” a song off his debut solo album Give The Drummer Some. The track features vocals by Yelawolf, Twista, Busta Rhymes, and Lil Jon and all of them appear in the auction premise based music video.

Despite Travis Barker prepping to release a new album with his band Blink-182, he is still going strong on promoting his own debut solo album, Give The Drummer Some. Not only did he open up for Lil Wayne’s spring tour, but he also recently released a music video for his song “Saturday Night” which features Transplants, and Slash. Barker’s music video for “Let’s Go” has a vastly different premise than his “Saturday Night” music video, which had a more carefree feel to it.
There are five separate artists featured on “Let’s Go,” and all of them are incorporated nicely into the music video. The premise revolves around an auction house that is holding what else but an auction. Lil Jon who vocally opens up the song, also opens up the music video by storming into the auction room with a group of men behind him.

The other artists are incorporated into the music video by acting as the auctioneers or a body guard. Busta Rhymes and Twista take turns performing their verses in front of the podium as if they were auctioning off items. Right as Busta Rhymes kicks off his verse a curtain opens up and unveils Barker on a revolving circular platform performing drums. Throughout the entire music video Barker is featured performing on his simplistic green drum kit in the revolving manner.
All of the vocalists featured on the track are dressed to the nine’s in the music video, including hip-hop artist Yelawolf, who lets face it, normally dresses in tank tops, or no tops. In the video Yelawolf acts as the look-out guy, and does his verse in front of the doors. When the cops try and break through the auction rooms doors, Yelawolf and his men are the ones keeping them shut. Since he is currently touring on the Vans Warped Tour, and none of his shots include any of the other artists in the song I wonder if he was actually there for the filming, or if his set was built and shot separately.
Mainly, the items that are being auctioned off to a very posh crowd include, paintings, music, and a car covered in what looks like graffiti. You can view screenshots from the “Let’s Go” music video by clicking here.
