Brady Watt releases “Body Snatchers” featuring Ransom.
Brady Watt is the living embodiment of a virtuoso, and his chameleon-like ability to mesh his instrumentation, production and artistry into any multi-genre setting with any artist he chooses is awe-inspiring.
Aside from his own solo work and collaborative endeavors, Brady’s contributions and production includes producing Jack Harlow’s hit single, “Same Guy,” featuring Maroon 5’s Adam Levine (which was punctuated when both artists performed the song on Saturday Night Live), the “Narcissist” which featured Westside Gunn and the iconic DJ Premier, and after a “Sunday Service” performance with Marc Rebillet went viral generating so much positive adulation, Brady Watt, DJ Premier and Marc Rebillet headlined a show in Central Park together last summer. Most recently, Brady released his “Nobody Home” single and video which featured the rhythm sections of Rage Against The Machine and Metallica and two trend-setting and legendary musical icons in Brad Wilk & Robert Trujillo.
Purveyor of the groundbreaking “Bass & Bars” series, after delivering a rousing performance of “Slam” with Onyx, Brady’s most recent episode featured him collaborating with multiple-time Grammy nominee Matisyahu; which further exemplifies Brady’s ability to both shape-shift and uplift any artist he works with.

Now, with his new single, Brady is snatchin’ bodies with the rapper’s rapper Ransom. If you’ve been paying attention for the last few years, the run Ransom is on has been quite remarkable. One of the more technically skilled clinicians in the game, Ransom recites his raps with an eloquence that is virtually unparalleled. Over the last two years alone he has unleashed a slew of stellar solo and collaborative projects and guest appearances.
With “Body Snatchers,” Brady and Ransom recorded the single in a dystopian, ‘Blade Runner’ esque state of mind. “Ransom, who is, in my opinion, the best wordsmith on the battlefield, we made this together during COVID amongst really dark times in New York City” Brady Watt declared. “Initially, I wrote the hook but felt it needed even more of a storyline to connect it. I also wrote a verse but was going to scrap it and just have Ransom on this, but he insisted I keep it, which was the highest honor to me because it’s my first official rap verse.”
While you can always count on top-notch bars from Ransom, Brady and Carlos Homs airy production extends a broader and larger, stadium feel to Ransom’s surgical precision. “This record is a genre-bending phenomenon” Ransom concurs.
