New Music: Brady Watt f/ Clifflight “Roots Around My Ribcage” (Statik Selektah Remix)

RAMR Statik Remix Final

Mass Appeal Premiere

Brady Watt wears many hats--aside from being “Nyce On The Bass,” he holds residence in DJ Premier’s “The Badder Band” (Watt also plays in Talib Kweli’s band and produced the “Intro” and “Outro” on Kweli’s recently released The Seven EP with Styles) and he also writes, composes and produces; his esteemed resume includes collaborations with Joey Bada$$ (most recently “500 Benz”), Styles P & Talib Kweli, Curren$y, Melanie Fiona and Statik Selektah (Brady appears on the lead-single, “Man Of The Hour,” featuring 2Chainz and Wiz Khalifa from Statik’s forthcoming 8 album) .

After graduating and moving to NY, Brady received an invite to a party, after being promised a free drink, some girls to talk to, and networking at best, Brady decided to attend Dame Dash’s DD172 compound and with his bass on his back he encountered Ski Beatz. The hit-maker for Jay Z, Camp Lo, and Fat Joe saw the instrument and invited Brady to plug into his MPC sampler. Around the party, Jean Grae was penning a verse, Ski was tapping out beats and Brady was going in on the bass. Along with the partygoers, Ski was impressed. Soon after, Brady and Ski began a string of celebrated releases including Curren$y’s Pilot Talk 1 & II, 24 Hour Karate School, and Murs’ Love & Rockets; all of a sudden he was Dame Dash’s musical director and playing alongside the likes of Mos Def and Jay Electronica. Then things opened up.

Upon the release of his lead single, “Youth In Revolt,” (which was premiered by XXL) featuring Michael Christmas, DJ Premier announced that he had signed Brady to a deal to become the first producer he has ever signed to his TTT (To The Top) imprint; where Brady will be releasing his forthcoming new project To Get Back Home.

Today, Brady Watt reconnects with Statik Selektah, who adds his flavor for a remix of Brady’s “Roots Around My Ribcage,” which was exclusively premiered by Mass Appeal. “When I sent Statik song options to remix I was hyped he picked this one; and excited to see what he'd do with it. I asked him to switch it up as much as possible and he really put it in a whole new lane” Brady commented to Mass Appeal. "I wanted to add my touch to this record the second I heard it” Statik emphatically stated. “It's my first time remixing such a pop sounding record; but it got soul.”
