Wake Self
Wake Self
IIt’s nearly impossible to describe the intense commitment and passion Wake Self has for hip-hop. Since the beginning of the new millennium, Wake has played an integral role in Albuquerque’s hip-hop scene, but now his sights are set on the world. With two European tours under his belt, he’s just begun to scratch the surface of what he can do with his music. For the past decade, he has worked tirelessly to establish himself among the hip-hop elite. From work with his hip-hop band, Zoology, to his recent solo ventures, Martinez always has both hands in hip-hop.

He’s shared the stage with countless notable acts, including Dilated Peoples, Blackalicious, KRS-ONE, Eyedea & Abilities, Chali 2na of Jurassic, De La Soul, Del the Funky Homosapien, and Souls of Mischief, DMX, Masta Ace, Mac Miller.

Wake’s debut solo album, The Healing Process,was released in 2013 and was met with endless positive accolades. It received over 50,000 hits online and was given a near perfect review in Ghettoblaster Magazine, and made album of the year lists on various blogs. He quickly followed up with his sophomore effort, Good Things Happen to Those Who Wake, which sold out of five physical pressings and resulted in thousands of copies sold. He’s been featured on The Source, Ambrosia For Heads, Sirius XM Shade 45 radio, Sway in the Morning, Ego Trip Land, 2DopeBoyz, HipHopDX, B-Real TV, MTV.com, Respect Magazine, Chuck D’s RAPstation and URB magazine. Provides the Entrance music for MMA Invitica sports fighter Amber “The Bully” Brown. Video for the song “New Mexico” went viral on Facebook with over 25k shares, half a million views and counting. He tours all over the U.S., Europe, The UK and Costa Rica, and will be adding more countries to that list inevitably.

In addition to his music career, he’s also active in the community, especially when it comes to leading the way for the younger generations. He represented New Mexico for the international event “The Power Shift” in Washington D.C. amongst leading environmental activist, engineers and leaders of environmental technology and justice. He also provides workshops throughout the southwestern U.S. to help troubled youth and aspiring youth by teaching songwriting, recording and encouraging positive expression as an outlet through music and art.

“i can never find songs that say what I wanna hear or explain how I feel,” Wake says. “I think there are a lot of things that need to be said that I rarely find anyone talking about in hip-hop. I just feel it's important that I speak. I also make music to heal, whether it be myself, our planet, my community or someone in pain who needs to relate to a song.

“We gotta understand how powerful our thoughts and creations really are, examine our current music trends and examine problems in the world and you can see how intertwined it all is,” he continues. “I want show others who grew up on reservations, in small towns or rough environments, we can be great. We can accomplish our goals. Music keeps my soul and mind right. I create to remember why life is beautiful and to offer alternatives to what needs to be changed about our reality.”

Wake’s mission is clear: Bring light to the injustices happening and have higher standards for ourselves in a positive and progressive way. Stop going along with everything as it is and start questioning why it is this way. In short, “Wake Yourself.”
