Bio

Born and raised in the Steel City of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Trevor Weller epitomizes what the town is about.  Hard working with an understanding that you get in what you put in.  An emcee who has grinded in the local circuit performing alongside the likes of Immortal Technique, Brother Ali, Lil Scrappy, Wiz Khalifa, Mac Miller and countless others.  Real Deal is most notably known for a battle career that has spanned over 5 years.  Real Deal has traveled the globe butting heads with the worlds most respected battlers and coming out victorious more often than not.  Starting out with stage battles and the local circuit Real earned a name for himself in early 2005 while running through the competition.  Real Deal is a 4 time winner of one of the most grueling emcee competitions the city has seen "Rhyme Calisthenics".  In 2007 he decided to throw his hat in the legendary scribblejam and was eventually eliminated in the second round.  Real came back stronger in 2008 winning the scribble preliminaries in Cleveland but was once again ousted in the second round at Scribble.  All was not lost however as this would be the event where Real would get an offer to try his efforts in Grindtime, a relatively new battle league created by and ran by successful battlers.  Real debuted in November of 2008 in Indianapolis against a local established battle emcee, the rest was history.  In the 3 years since then Real has battled in 4 different countries and over 30 different cities.  He has gained national recognition as one of the top battle emcees and his city even awarded him with "Battle Rapper of the Year" in 2009.  Most recently Real Deal has proven his worth on in the legendary SMACK battle arena.  Musically Real combines raw lyricism with intricate song concepts and real substance.  Real Deal released his debut album "The Renaissance" in 2007 and his sophomore effort "The Working Mans Emcee" in 2010.  In August of 2012 Real Deal was selected to perform the intro song for Thursday Night high school football on ROOT SPORTS.  In March of 2013 he released his third album "Fight or Flight Mode".  In June of 2013 he was one of 8 emcees to compete on live television on BET for the Ultimate Freestyle Friday competition.  In May of 2015 he released his biggest album to date entitled "The Mountains and Molehills".  In May of 2017 he released "The Mount Oliver Project".  In August of 2019 he defeated Chilla Jones to become the King of the Dot Champion.  He successfully defended it again in November to retain the title.
