R.I.P Wreck from Wicked Minds

We heard about this sad news that Wreck aka Eddie Martinez, the founder of Wicked Minds, passed away on Sunday, October 28th. Wreck was one of the original pioneers of latin hip hop/chicano rap, and highly respected among fans and his musical peers. Everyone here at UKMG was saddened by the news, as Wreck was a very cool and humble person. Everyone has stories about Wreck, aside from his music, but the person he was. Always looking out for people, taking the time to give advice and knowledge through situations he has been through so others wouldn’t make the same mistake. May Eddie Rest In Paradise.

We are going to leave you with his story, written by the man himself, for his biography from his Facebook Page.

Wicked Minds is one of the pioneers of the Latin Hip-Hop scene. The first Wicked Minds album release occurred the night of Halloween, October 31st, 1996. Since then, Wicked Minds has continued releasing albums every Halloween. Alot of people have asked Wreck, what does the name “Wicked Minds” mean or stand for. Where did the name come from? The name “Wicked Minds” means, “What is misunderstood is feared” Ever since the beginning of time, when something was misunderstood, it was considered evil or wicked. Since the 2006 Halloween release of “The 18th Angel” on Thump/DefBoy Records, Wicked Minds has released “Illuminati”. This album introduces the newest artist to the Wicked Minds line-up, Lil Wreck, Baby Face. Halloween 2009 we dropped the newest Wicked Minds cd which is the reunion album titled “Legion” Wreck, BabyWicked, Mr. Chino Grande, and Cuete Yeska get back together to record this hip hop masterpiece.”Legion” also introduces the joining of forces by the Wicked Minds kids Lil Wreck(Wreck’s son) and Lil Bam Bam(Cuete Yesca’s son). Finally we have the” Compilation X” cd released Halloween 2010. This one features a gang of foos, you gotta peep it out. The last thirteen years have been spent performing on stages across the country with various artists. Some of these artists include such names as Ludacris, Cypress Hill, Xzibit, Baby Beesh (before he was Bash), Frost, Lighter Shade of Brown, Run DMC, SPM, Brown Boy, Cecy B, Nino Brown, Down, Mr. Capone-e, Lil Rob, Snoop Dogg, Warren G, Fat Joe, Stevie B, Chingo Bling, Knightowl, Brenton Wood, War, Tierra, Rocky Padilla, DJ Quick, Suga Free, and the list goes on and on.

Words Of Wisdom

Let me tell you something you already know, don’t ever ever let somebody tell you that you can’t do something. People look at life and do what they been taught is called perfect. As in what your are currently doing, is the ultimate thing you can do, and this includes me. But what I have learned  is, that in order to live a life like no other, you have to visit places, like no other. Hear music that you would of never heard before, like no other. Socialize with friends who have different backgrounds, like no other. Explore a side of your brain you would of never explored, like no other. Your brain does what it knows what to do. Show it different views, teach it different views, let it experience stuff like no other. Do stuff like no other and you will end up being no other. Imagine if you can experience the most beautiful things in life. Now stop imagining and go do it, because the ultimate thing you can ever do has not been done, or else it would not be ultimate anymore. Impress yourself, because if you can do that, then the world for sure would look amazed. Its time to advertise in your own brain and change the direction of your thinking. Its only ME vs Me, and guess who’s going to win? Call that a fight to victory, call that a XSetForLifeX experience in my brain. I challenge you to ask yourself “What did you do today to beat yesterday?” Now that is how you take charge to create to your own ambition. Say hello for me. #Swoosh
