If there is one thing that Pittsburghers are universally its good at its is talking shit, so its no surprise that Real Deal is one of the countries elite battle rappers.   What you may not know about him is that he is probably the coolest teachers a kid could ask for.  “Death of An Optimist” answers one of the questions Real Deal gets asked regularly; What it is like teaching and rapping and is the first video off of the upcoming album “Fight or Flight Mode”

“Death of An Optimist” features Vanessa Botti and was directed by Soberdash.  Watch for a little Blasfome love around the 2:30 mark.  Be sure to share the video too it will probably get you some extra credit.
