“The name Wake Self may not resonate with people like the names Drake or Kanye West, but 2016 could be the year that changes. With an official cosign from J Dilla’s mother, Ma Dukes, the Albuquerque, New Mexico-based emcee’s new concept video for “Still Love Her” pays tribute to the pioneers who paved the way for Hip Hop culture.”

“Featuring an official co-sign and intro from Ma Dukes herself, Albuquerque, NM's Wake Self formally introduces himself to the DopeHouse denizens with an interesting conceptual video for his new single, "I Still Love Her." Sample provided by Hiatus Kayote, trumpet by Miles Bonny, produced by DJ Young Native, live drums by Emilio, mixed & Mastered by Per C Wells and written by Wake Self.”

“Albuquerque, New Mexico emcee Wake Self pays tribute to classic hip-hop artists and albums in a new video for “Still Love Her.” The track, which is off his upcoming album, Malala, features J Dilla’s mother Ma Dukes opening the track by telling listeners to “educate yourself/be about it.” It then fades into Wake Self twisting the titles and lyrics of revered hip-hop classics into every verse.”
