His 2019 collaboration with three other rappers on the single Wip Wup has raked in nearly 260 million views on YouTube. He’s also founded his own company, Pok 9 Entertainment, which produces online content and videos for his music. Patasarakorn can often be found on his YouTube channel, Mindset TV, with lighthearted reality shows featuring his wife, actress Rasri “Margie” Balenciaga Chirathivat, and their two children. His YouTube channel and Facebook page each has over 2 million followers. In five years, Patsarakorn sees himself continuing to perform, but also doing more behind-the-scenes and management work. “What I love most when I perform is when the audiences sing along with me. It makes me feel like my hard work has paid off. I would not be here without the support from my fans.”
