Hundreds Of Mourners Flood Albuquerque's Civic Plaza For Wake Self's Vigil

#DXCLUSIVE: Green chile por vida.

Albuquerque, NM – Hundreds of people flooded Civic Plaza in Albuquerque, New Mexico on Wednesday night (November 6) to pay tribute to their fallen friend and brother Andrew “Wake Self” Martinez.

The New Mexico Hip Hop staple was struck by a drunk driver in Santa Fe on Sunday night (November 3). He later succumbed to his injuries at Burque’s University of New Mexico Hospital at 2:48 a.m. local time on Tuesday (November 5)..centered-ad {

As part of the vigil, several Native Americans performed a traditional Nahua send off, ushering him to the next chapter.

“Andy ‘Wake Self’ Martinez was family,” longtime friend and collaborator César Montaño told HipHopDX. “He meant so much to the New Mexico and Southwest Hip Hop community. I will cherish the memories we had together and continue to try to carry on his legacy in this world. Skull Control Por Vida.”
