Get Acquainted - Jacob Rochester [Art]
My Name is Jacob Rochester
What inspires you ?
As cliche as it sounds, everything inspires me, my surroundings, random finings on the internet, people, the list is endless.
What is your favorite piece of work and why?
I have more like 4 favorite pieces, those would be the two Otis renderings, and the two jetpack illustrations I made. All 4 had 'fun' processes and I was anxious to get to the final result of each.
What does the hip hop culture and it's elements mean to you?
A year ago I hated all the trap music everyone was putting out, but I developed a tolerance for it lately. I'll listen to anything from MF DOOM to 2 Chainz. I think every element in hip hop helps it grow, whether it be a song with true, lyrical content or a song with catchy hooks. At the end of the day it's all preference from the listener.
How does hip hop influence you as an artist?
I always feel like as hip hop evolves, my work follows suit. It's always good to hear new music and new ways that rappers make their craft, I try to do the same with my work.
