Dej Loaf Says She Didn’t Know Eminem Was Going To Be On “Detroit Vs. Everybody”
Girl power in effect. With Tink and Dej Loaf climbing up the ranks of respectability in rap, people have been monitoring their meteoric rise closely. The Detroit product has garnered a lot of recognition for her single "Try Me" and her new mixtape $ell Sole. She would then bolster her resume by hopping on Eminem's "Detroit Vs. Everybody", which features the heavy hitters of the D. According to Dej, she had no idea that Em was even going to be on the record. In an interview with Detroit Metro Times, she explained how Royce Da 5'9 pitched her the idea of doing the record.
“He was like, ‘I got this record,’ and I wasn’t sure if they were gonna make it,” she told the Detroit Metro Times. “He said it would be [a track] called ‘Detroit vs. Everybody.’”
Def agreed to be featured on the record but had no idea who else was going to join her besides Royce.
“I didn’t know it was gonna be Eminem,” she said. “What would you do?…How would you feel?”
On October 29, Dej realized she was alongside a bevy of Detroit rappers headlined by Eminem, after seeing the track-list for Shady XV. Shady XV drops next week.
