No Vacancy: New video released in support of Wake Self’s posthumous album Ready to Live
Albuquerque, New Mexcio-based rapper Wake Self passed away back in November after sustaining fatal injuries in a car accident which a Santa Fe man was eventually charged for. The untimely death occurred while WS was preparing for the release of his Ready to Live album which was originally scheduled for Nov. 7, 2019. The fatal crash occurred Nov. 3. Wake Self was just 30 years old when he passed.
The Ready to Live album was eventually released almost two weeks ago on Jan. 3, 2020, and today Wake Self’s estate has dropped visual support with the new “No Vacancy” video.
Directed by Alec Brown and conceptualized by Noor-Un-Nisa Touchon, the video for the Smoke M2D6-produced “No Vacancy” puts a New Mexican spin on a classic mobster tale.
“Wake, who was all about his red, green and Christmas chile, is on a mission to get the best stuff around. But he has some bad guys on his tail. With the help of two tiny bandits, he’s able to complete his mission and bask in chile glory.”
You can find “No Vacancy” and the rest of the Ready to Live album on various digital streaming platforms including Apple Music and Spotify via A OK ALL DAY.
