Brady Watt is a bad-ass bassist and producer, known for playing with Talib Kweli and Ski Beatz, and now currently tours with the legendary DJ Premier, as the bass player of his band, The Badder.

Last night, as he prepared to head to Japan on tour with Primo, he came by Show # 73 and in a wide-ranging interview, we talked to him about his beginnings as a hustling musician in NYC, from playing live to session work, to his "Holy Mountain Spirituals" retreat in Malibu, to recording his first album Lifetronics in a Harlem brownstone. You can find out more about him and about upcoming live shows on his website, his Twitter, Instagram and listen to his original music on his SoundCloud.

Listen to our interview with Brady Watt, which starts with a hip-hop track he played bass on, "No. 99" by Joey Bada$$ and produced by Statik Selectah:
