 BackgroundThe album title itself, is a reference to a track by the Ultramagnetic MC's of the same name, which in turn derives from James Brown's "Funky Drummer". It was first announced by Barker himself that the album would be of "no one genre", indicating that the album wouldn't be based on hip hop, punk rock,unlike his previous remixes & collaborations with famous rappers/artists.
Guests to be confirmed to collaborate and featured are: Slaughterhouse, The Cool Kids, RZA, Ludacris, Lil Wayne, Rick Ross, T.I., Game, Raekwon, Tom Morello, Slash, Steve Aoki, Pharrell, Clipse, Kid Cudi, Yelawolf, Snoop Dogg, Drake, Lupe Fiasco, Swizz Beatz, Bun B and Tech N9ne.
Barker confirmed in aninterview that there will not be any collaborations with Mark Hoppus and Tom Delonge from Blink-182 as he thought it would be wrong to have the first new blink-182 song on his album, and that the song will be released separately as a single before the album is released in June/July 2011.
The tracklisting was revealed on February 25, 2011.
