Blink-182's Travis Barker has slammed fans who criticise him for collaborating with hip-hop artists.

Snoop Dogg and Lil Wayne are among the rappers who appear on his solo album 'Give The Drummer Some', and he has performed live with the likes of Eminem and Drake.

He told Complex.com that he gets annoyed when rock purists hit out at him for his forage into the world of hip-hop, branding them "Nazi bastards".

"It seems like I have more in common – or hit it off better – with rappers than fools that are in rock music," he said.

He added: "Whenever I get an offer or hear a guy like Wayne shout me out on a mixtape, it's like, 'What the fuck!' I'm always flattered.

"I got people who were mad when I played the Grammys [in 2010] with Wayne, Drake, and Eminem. They'll be like, 'Stop playing this rap shit!'. It's like, fuck you, man! Open up your ears, you Nazi bastard. Don't be so closed-minded."

'Give The Drummer Some' is out on Monday (March 21).
