Since then, he has gained nearly 3.5M subscribers to his main YouTube page, and is pushing 700M views. His online popularity helped propel him to a recurring role on MTV’s improv series Wild ‘N Out. Whether he’s recording a self-roasting diss track, taking Beyoncé’s advice to see if “Good D= Red Lobster,” or traveling through time in a food truck on his new video series Thai Machine with fellow YouTuber Ricky Shucks, Tim is always having a DeLaGhetto blast.
