Eric and Jeff Rosenthal AKA ItsTheReal sat down with Joss live from their apartment in New York. Eric and Jeff have built a lane for themselves as two white  Jewish dudes who are extremely respected and embraced by the Hip-Hop Community. The Two are Industry Insiders, Writers, Hip Hop Sketch Comedians, Interviewers, Podcaststers, Live Performers and even dropped two fire projects as rappers, Urbane Outfitters & Teddy Bear Fresh


On the podcast we take a culture trip with the two brothers into their dense decade plus of existing in the Hip Hop scene from conducting Travis Scott’s first interview, hosting the 20-year reunion of Roc-A-Fella Records all while keeping up with the new names like Russ or Lil Uzi Vert. They dive straight into their meaningful career as storytellers and continue to gravitate in a route that has always been authentic and unique to them. Tune into this one of a kind episode and meet ItsTheReal on the other side of the table.
