Travis Barker’s Daughter Alabama Barker, 17, Criticized After Previewing New Rap Music
Alabama Barker is making headlines after teasing new rap music.
During a recent TikTok livestream, Alabama, daughter of Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, gave her followers a taste of what's to come from her own music career.
During the stream, Alabama lip-synced along to her unreleased hip-hop track.
"He told me I'm not gonna make it / I told him he crazy," she rapped.
"I did write this all by myself in my room," the 17-year-old shared when someone in the livestream chat asked her.
Listen to a snippet of the track below:
Online, people swiftly shared their mixed reactions to her rap song.
Some believed she was putting on a "Blaccent" or "trying to be Black" on the track. Others criticized her for rapping about overcoming struggles as she is the daughter of a wealthy, famous musician.
On the other side, some defended her as she is only 17 and argued she can make whatever kind of music she wants.
However, the majority of reactions were negative and she received quite a bit of backlash on Twitter and other social media platforms.
Many people seemed to expect her to perform rock music like her father, comparing her to him in the process.
Alabama previously clapped back at someone who criticized her for lip-syncing the words, "I used to f--k your homegirl but it ain't like that," in a TikTok video.
"What am I saying in the video besides singing a song?" the teen questioned in a response TikTok video.
"On top of that why are you worried about someone that doesn't ... concern your life whatsoever. I don't know how me singing a rap song on TikTok is disrespecting myself or how gross it is," she continued.
