Video Spotlight: Travis Barker's Crank That Remix

Soulja Boy's "Crank That" has been a huge hit for the last couple of months and has inspired numerous remixes from top-shelf artists in the hip-hop community like Twista and Jermaine Dupri. However, there is an official remix from Travis Barker that makes for the most unique version of the song.

The former Blink-182 drummer does well in providing a more-pronounced percussion influence to the track and, for good measure, adds rock guitar to make for a heavier remix than the competition.

In addition to his version of the song, Barker decided to film an informal music video. While not the most glamorous piece of film, it does do a good job of showing one of the best drummers in rock do what he does best.

If you enjoy this song, the remix is currently available for purchase at the itunes store
