“The R.E.B.E.L. (Real Educated Black Enlightened Leader)” is the third album from ‘Da Capt.’ D.R.Universal and promises to deliver more of a direct message to the listeners than his previous releases. This album speaks to a variety of social topics from single motherhood (MAMA) to racial inequality (The Actual) but is also balanced with head nodding beats that display D.R.’s trademark lyrical delivery (Second Wind). On the last album 5 different producers contributed tracks but this time around D.R. only chose to work with his closest 3 in order to give it a more personal sound. The features were also carefully selected, with an appearance from J.Elise who blesses the hook with her soulful melody on a track (Everyday). Also, for all those who love the lost art of storytelling, Warning gives you a taste of what you’ve been missing.

“The R.E.B.E.L.” is a free download on D.R. Universal’s Bandcamp page, there is no charge if you enter your email address but you can also make a donation of any amount if you choose. This album was almost three years in the making; as soon as ‘The Sequel 2 The First’ was released in August 2011, ‘Da Capt.’ starting crafting this project carefully to make sure every verse in every song had the meaning needed to complete the theme. He wanted this album to be the music you can listen to when you need to smile, or when you have things on your mind, or when you just want to chill; basically this should be the soundtrack to your life.

This one is for the people! This is for all who want to listen to music with a meaning! This is for all who want to have balance in their life! This is music for everyday people! This is music for you and yours!
Please support “The R.E.B.E.L.” and tell a friend to tell two friends…
