If you’re into the international battle scene, you’ve got to know about Real Deal. A Pittsburgh native, Real Deal has been growing his audience one cut throat line at a time for well over a decade. We got to know each other in the early 2000s when MySpace was king, and the contemporary Pittsburgh hip hop scene was developing in a hookah bar called The Hkan. We collab’ed on a song in 2008 called “Rush that Boy”, and have shared the stage at different venues throughout the years.
This Saturday at the Smiling Moose in the South Side of Pittsburgh, don’t miss the release party for Real Deal’s The Mount Oliver Project. I’ll be there to perform in support, as well as Jesse Mader. DJ BMW will be holding it down the entire night, with doors open at 9 PM. Must be 21 or older to enter. $10 at the door. See the event page for more information by clicking the flier below.
