Miss Info: We survived #SummerJam2014! And it was a blast! Hopefully everyone who wasn’t at MetLife Stadium in person watched along with us on the live backstage webcast (it’s still replaying today). You can watch video of all the biggest moments here. But this year, we also teamed up with Eric and Jeff Rosenthal from ItsTheReal, gave them a camera, all-access badges, and sent them off to explore the realer side of the Summer Jam experience…
They went straight for the parking lot. Obviously. That’s where the twerkers are.
Watch ItsTheReal’s first annual “Summer Jam Parking Lot’s…Got Talent” after the jump…
It’s a proud moment when one makes the transition from MissInfo.tv reader to MissInfo.tv contributor. Hi, we’re Eric and Jeff Rosenthal and — for the past seven years — we’ve been making fun of (and with!) the rappers you know and love as the hip-hop sketch comedians ItsTheReal. Maybe you’ve seen our videos or listened to our podcast or retweeted our tweets or read our articles or heard our songs.
Yesterday, after interviewing everyone from August Alsina to Chinx Drug and Mack Wilds, Nipsey Hussle to Childish Gambino, we took our biggest leap of faith yet, diving into the wilds of Hot 97’s Summer Jam parking lot (an endless parade of moments you can never un-see). MissInfo.tv lieutenant Andy B. — visiting from Manchester — said, “There’s nothing like this in the UK!” to which we replied, “There’s nothing like this anywhere.”
And, with that, we’d like to present the first of what will hopefully be many editions of the exciting game show “Summer Jam Parking Lot’s Got Talent!” Don’t worry: everyone’s a winner and no one left with hepatitis. That we know of.
Look out for much more ItsTheReal x MissInfo.tv coverage of Hot97’s Summer Jam 2014 coming this week.
