It’s finally here!! The labor of love that is AREALLIFEREBEL’s “DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR.” Rebel started his artistic journey almost a decade ago. Since then he has experienced many losses and setbacks along his musical journey. In 2016, Rebel had an epiphany that he wanted to leave something musically great to the world as he contemplated giving music up altogether.
Through telling lucid stories of his upbringing, family life, religion, with pain and loss; “DELUSIONS,” is a triumphant realization that whatever you dream can be obtained through persistence and hard work. The 5 song EP solidifies Rebel as a strong force to be reckoned with as he shines through his lyrical prowess and ability to paint vivid pictures.
Make sure to go and download and stream “DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR,” available on all steaming platforms and iTunes. Get to know AREALLIFEREBEL!
DreBlackSoFresh was created back in 2010, with the intention to stay informed and updated on Pop culture and all the hottest stories, news, and gossip that would break the internet. This blog site has covered it ALL! However, in an age where information is literally at the tip of your fingers; you can find the latest tea or breaking news instantly as it happens via TMZ or the Shade Room. There are more than enough blogs and media outlets for that and I no longer have an interest in providing that content on this website.
Moving forward DreBlackSoFresh will focus on stories of substance that affect our (Black) community with an emphasis on black entrepreneurship, mental health and education, local/national underground artists, and highlighting various organizations and people who are actively involved in the community in hopes to create a better one.
Thanks to everyone who has continued to follow and support this site without constant updates and posts. The best is yet to come!!
Bruno Mars teased earlier yesterday that he would be releasing a new single “Finesse,” featuring no other than hot Femcee at the moment, Cardi B. The single which was released on Thursday at 12 midnight and then the video shortly after; seems to be off to a good start. With generally positive reviews; Cardi has really been taking the music world by storm. This week she became only the third artist in Billboard history to have her first three singles all hit the Top 10 of the Billboard 100. Her new single “Bartier Cardi,” debuted this week at number 14. If enough sales are garnered for “Finesse,” Cardi may very well have a fourth Top 10 on the way.
Check out the video below, which is an homage to “In Living Color.”
This week the organizers of COACHELLA released the official line up for the big festival going down in April. As previously reported Beyonce will be the first Black woman to headline the festival.

Mike D’Angelo is taking the DMV by storm. He is a thriving Hip-Hop artist pushing the limits as a community leader and activist and lyrical MC. He recently won “Breakout Artist of the Year,” at the DMV’s Annual Titan Awards, where the winner is based off of a voting system. Mike also recently held a benefit concert for the family of James Anthony Smith, a local teenager killed in SE, Washington, DC over a pair of Jordans, that his mother bought him as an early Christmas present.
Back in August, Dre Black had the pleasure of spending some time with Mike, where they went back to Mike’s childhood neighborhood located in Edgewood NE, Washington, DC. From there they went on what was supposed to be a 15 min interview to a 4 hour day of great footage of Mike in his element.
