Since 2007, brothers Eric and Jeff Rosenthal, collectively known as the hip-hop sketch comedians ItsTheReal, have flooded the internet with viral sketch comedy videos, longform podcast episodes, and short absurdist interviews. In working with everyone from Stevie Wonder to Cam'ron, from Jojo to Pete Wentz, from Slaughterhouse to J.Cole, they've racked up millions of views, hundreds of thousands of followers, and a great number of ridiculous stories along the way.

And perhaps most impressively, ItsTheReal's original music has taken on a life of its own: their critically celebrated mixtape with DJ Drama, Urbane Outfitters, Vol. 1, put them on the front page of The New York Times' arts section, put them on stage at Bonnaroo, and put their music videos everywhere from Buzzfeed to Revolt TV. 

ItsTheReal is currently finishing recording their next mixtape, hosting a popular new podcast, and developing several TV projects.
