Dej Loaf

In 2011, Dej Loaf began her career as a hip hop artist. Her stage name is a portmanteau of a shortened version of her first name, "Deja", and "loafer", as she took a keen interest in Air Jordans when growing up.[4] In 2013, she released her first official mixtape, Just Do It.. That mixtape attracted the attention of a fellow Detroit-native rapper SAYITAINTTONE. She was later signed to his indie record label, called IBGM (I Been Gettin' Money) under his management team.[4] In July 2014, she released her track, called "Try Me" (produced by DDS) as a single,[4] which earned her viral popularity, after Canadian hip hop recording artist Drake quoted lyrics from the song in his Instagram post.[5] In October 2014, she signed a major record deal to Columbia Records. After signing a deal, she released her second official mixtape, called Sell Sole.[3] That mixtape was given an "A–" by music critic Robert Christgau, who wrote in his review for Vice, "What's irresistible is the form-content disparity—a rapper who brags so un-macho, a rapper whose greed is so explicitly for her family, a rapper who's 'Grindin' ' at music. Plus her flow is a brook, her producer respects her space, and her two sex rhymes are into it and into it more."[6] Dej Loaf rapped on the song "Detroit vs. Everybody" featured on a fellow American high-profile rapper Eminem's compilation Shady XV (2014). In 2015, she opened for Nicki Minaj during the North American leg of The Pinkprint Tour.[7] Later that year, she was chosen as part of the XXL magazine 2015 Freshman Class.[8]
