The song comes from Battles' latest EP, Until September, being one of seven tracks produced by J.Cuse on the project. The up-and-coming rapper from Indianapolis has been making a name for himself not only as a musician, but as CEO and founder of his own record label, Fly America.
"Be Real" vocalizes the strong lyrics of being yourself and staying true, over laid back beats.

According to his Facebook page, Battles' "desire [is] to properly represent his hometown with the production of effective music that listeners will not only appreciate, but also remember." The rapper begins his Until September tour July 10th.
Until September is now available on iTunes.
