Brutha is a quintet of brothers who came together to form a R&B group showcasing song remakes. Their show, Brothers to Brutha, shows their transformation during and after they reached semifame. The brothers are signed to Def Jam Records, and their self-titled debut album "Brutha" was released in December 2008.

The group formed in 2002 and was discovered by Brian Mcknight, who introduced them on the 2003 ''Soul Train'' Holiday Special.

In 2007, their uncle Donny "Drano" Harrell, CEO of Goodfellas Entertainment, and Shakir Stewart, senior vice president of A&R at Island Def Jam, invited the group to Atlanta to do a filmed audition in front of Jermaine Dupri and a range of producers. It resulted in a one-hour original special TV show called "Jermaine Dupri presents: Brutha", broadcast March 24 on Peachtree TV. The group caught the attention of Jermaine Dupri, who signed them to the Island Def Jam Music Group.
