For last week’s series premiere, our guy @Combat_Jack from The Combat Jack Show took the reigns of the @VH1GossipGame twitter account to steer some conversation around the show’s first episode. Who’s on deck to be the guest tweeter this week?
You probably know Jeff and Eric Rosenthal as the hip hop sketch comedy duo ItsTheReal who, over the years, have developed a strong online following for their LOL-beckoning skits and artist interviews. But in hip hop media circles, they have some serious cred as well; with a collection of bylines from major music and culture outlets and numerous rappers on speed-dial, the two brothers aren’t new to the rap-game rodeo.
After their videos landed them gigs with MTV.com and the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, the duo recently decided to hop a fence for grass that, from a fan perspective, very often seems the greenest: they became rappers. Kinda.
On April Fool’s Day, ItsTheReal dropped Urbane Outfitters Vol. 1, the first of a two-part comedy rap mixtape series that features verses from Maino, Bun B, and Freeway, and is hosted by DJ Drama. Constantly tweeting hilarious commentary from their Twitter account (@ItsTheReal), we’re excited to see what the they cook up during tonight’s second episode of The Gossip Game. Tune-in at 9pm ET/PT and follow @VH1GossipGame on Twitter to stay updated as scenes from the show unfold alongside the guys’ snarky play-by-play.
