Timothy DeLaGhetto aka Traphik is a Thai American rapper, actor, writer, designer, comedian, and singer (in the shower) who has been entertaining people since he was 5 years old. In school, he discovered his love for hip hop and began writing his own rap lyrics. Gaining popularity, he was frequently challenged to rap battles. A steady collaboration with friends Pedro Flores (PDFlo), Eric Ochoa (SuperEEEgo), and Rick Carter (RickyShucks) led to the formation of PDFlo Films, which later went on to create classic viral video classics like the “Kings of Myspace” and the “Kings of YouTube.”
“I've been an entertainer ever since I was a little kid. I linked up with a few friends from my drama class in high school and we started making short films. We would enter those films into contests and film festivals,” said Timothy DeLaGhetto. “I started doing stupid videos for my Myspace and YouTube, and eventually more and more people started watching.”
On YouTube, Timothy created a channel that now boasts of over 1 million subscribers and over 300 million video views. His channel features skits, songs, and relationship advice. He follows what he calls the “Fresh Prince Format,” which is a goal to conquer music, television, and movies.
“MYX TV has always been about bringing the best of Asian American entertainment to our viewers,” said Miguel Santos, Associate General Manager for MYX TV. “Timothy DeLaGhetto is a leading online entertainer and we are proud to be the first network to put him on TV with his hilarious brand of comedy."
