Yung Jake mixes wildly immersive digital art with rap. Via the paint-with-emojis site emoji.ink, he created celebrity portraits featured by MTV, People, and Time that inspired a Pepsi ad. In emoji portrait vids, Yung Jake tracks his creative process of depicting each given rapper / celeb / or internet personality using the app emoji.ink that was programmed by his partner, Vince Mckelvie.
