Genre-defying artist Brady Watt and Dipset legend Jim Jones have released a new single and video for “Godspeed.”  “Godspeed” is co-produced by Heatmakerz.   You can watch the new video for “Godspeed” below. 

Brady Watt continues to captivate audiences and push musical boundaries with his groundbreaking “Bass & Bars” series, which has now garnered over 100 million views.  Recent episodes include collaborations with Freeway, Melle Mel & The Furious 5, Large Professor, The Pharcyde, Trinidad James, Lord Finesse, and AZ.

Beyond his series, Watt has recently performed at prestigious events such as the Montreal Jazz Festival alongside DJ Premier and headlined the Rotterdam Double Bass Festival. He also opened for blues and guitar legend Gary Clark Jr. on his U.S. tour and capped it off with a remarkable performance at Radio City Music Hall.

Watt’s journey to creating “Godspeed” began at Heatmakerz’s studio, where he sifted through approximately 20 beats before selecting one with a vintage gospel sample, that was mixed with rock and roll and street elements that immediately resonated with him;  inspired Brady quickly crafted the hook and refined the track by adding bass, synths, and keys from Carlos Homs.

“I’m a lifelong Dipset fan,” Watt shared. “Over the years, I’ve developed a friendship with Jim and Heatmakerz. I’m always making beats, but I wanted to see what would happen if I used someone else’s production while still adding my instrumentation and bass.”

During the recording process of “Godspeed,” Watt was deeply affected by the loss of a close friend’s father. He channeled his emotions into the song, turning his sadness into a positive message about gratitude, alignment with destiny and God’s timing.

“With Dipset already on my mind, we reached out to Jim Jones, and he miraculously came to the studio a few days later,” Watt recalled. “Jim did the verse on the spot and brought everything to the next level. Thankfully, my cameraman was there to document everything.”

 “Godspeed” is now available!
