Detroit rap newcomer Dej Loaf recently shared her thoughts on the music industry, notably the state of women holding things down in hip-hop.
In Loaf’s perspective, Young Money’s Nicki Minaj has already reached legendary status.
“She’s one of the very few female rappers who actually makes good music, you know what I’m saying? She’s stamped. And when I say stamped, I mean she’s good—she’s already a legend, she can sit down today and never do nothing again and people will remember her forever. A lot of female rappers, I don’t know… I always say they come in the game and they expect a lot.” (Billboard)

Loaf also talked about how much love female supporters give her.
“Definitely. I get more love from the girls—I’m not gonna say more than the guys—but the girls definitely going crazy and it’s always good to see. That’s my thing, ’cause a lot of guys don’t listen to girls’ music. They’re not gonna ride around in the car listening to certain females. So I try to make music that the guys can ride along too, the girls, you know. Just kind of keep a balance.” (Billboard)
Dej appears on rap star Eminem’s new “Detroit Vs. Everybody” song.
