Conceptualized by Noor-Un-Nisa Touchon and directed by Alec Brown, the video for Wake Self’s posthumous single 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.
“No Vacancy” comes from what would prove to be Wake’s final album Ready To Live, which is available now through all major digital retailers and streaming platforms via A OK ALL DAY. Wake’s life was taken on November 5th, 2019 when he was struck by a drunk driver while promoting his album release show in Santa Fe. He was just 30 years old.
