This rapper drops unexpectedly into your browser sessions, streams into Festival screenings, and pops out of walls and magazines in augmented-reality music videos.

About the Director
Yung Jake came alive on the Internet in 2011, where he released his first rap video, “Max Moyer,” on YouTube. Since then, he has been shamelessly attempting to gain a following by using video and other forms of digital communication. Most recently, with the help of programmer Vince McKelvie, he broke though the third wall of Internet user experience with E.m-bed.de/d. A very recent Cal Arts graduate, Jake continues to create stuff on the Internet.
