Rap artist Yung Jake is Net art incarnate, flowing lyrics about tweet culture, datamoshing, hashtags, and memes as he blows up on Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr, and Instagram.
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.
