As rap-rock team-ups go, the pairing of bros-in-tattooed arms Yelawolf and Travis Barker is promising: The Alabama MC and Blink-182 drummer are fleeter and slipperier than your average rap-rock lunks. Their EP has its moments: "Funky Shit" is funky indeed, with Yelawolf drawling, "Not a frat boy/I'm a rap boy/In Hollywood/Like Aykroyd." But in "Push 'Em" and the ill-conceived reggae turn "6 Feet Underground," Barker and Yelawolf can't transcend the essential gaucheness of the genre. Seems they are a bit frat-boyish, after all.
