TMG in “Broke B*tch”

Tiny Meat Gang is the parody rap duo consisting of famous YouTubers Noel Miller and Cody Ko. While the music project began as tongue and cheek, their songs became non-ironically popular. Their latest hit, “Broke B*tch,” has been deemed one of their best with over 22 million listens on Spotify. Its music video garnered 9.4 million views, and has been highly praised for its concept and editing. Not only did Noel Miller rap and star in the video — he also directed it! The two comedians discussed their lyrics to “Broke B*tch” in a Genius Verified video, which is funny given they’ve poked fun at that series in their commentary collabs.
