Travis Barker’s Famous Stars & Straps collaboration with Lasonic to create a custom Ghettoblaster has sold out and the limited-edition item is now going for close to $600 on eBay.
The tattooed rocker held a release party just over a week ago in Los Angeles at Central Hollywood with DJ Spider. Two days after the event the i931 Ghettoblaster sold out at Barker’s boutique store in California. The tech item was orginally priced at $250 retail. But the Famous Stars & Straps model of the popular player has risen in price as they’ve become hard to find.
Barker personally sent a few of the only 400 music players to artists like Rick Ross and Pharrell Williams, as well as The Game.
In related news, the former Blink-182 drummer is also set to work on a track by the Compton rapper. Barker has been working on a remix to the Game’s track “Dope Boys,” from the rapper’s forthcoming LP L.A.X. The drummer had success earlier this year remixing Flo Rida’s hit “Low” and in the past re- twisting successful hits by Pharrell and Rihanna.
Barker is currently working on producing tracks for Paul Wall and is mulling over the idea of compilation-styled solo album. –Jayson Rodriguez
