    Default DR slang in fine form...

    This is some real Dominican slang. I have not heard this word/ expression used by other Latinos not even Puerto Ricans. There is a lot of slang cross over between the two nations but not this word as far as I know.

    Anyway to break it down:

    rebú- has several meanings one them being 'a fight' (big and out of control)

    rebusero- is one who always starts one of these types of fights that leads to total disorder.

    Dominicana On Line

    A more common (local) and equivalent word in Spanish in various countries would simply be 'trifulca'.

    Definition :

    trifulca s. f. fam. Discusión o pelea entre dos o más personas, generalmente con mucho ruido y alboroto.

    rebusero = someone looking to start something. Not a compliment.
