DeJ Loaf Talks Detroit, Father's Murder & Big Break
Up and coming 'Try Me' rapper Dej Loaf sat down with VladTV correspondent Jenny Boom Boom and briefly discussed growing up in Detroit, losing her father at a young age and how 'Try Me' blew up after a few strokes of bad luck.Dej reveals that she grew up in a single parent home with her two brothers, raised by their mother after their father was murdered in the projects where they lived at the time. She says she greatly admires her mother who is one of the strongest people she knows and is her number one fan who's always supported her career ambitions.The Detroit native also spoke of working as a cleaner for Chrysler corporate offices, saying the last straw for her was scrubbing floors with a toothbrush. She then quit that job and began taking music seriously, without making much progress initially. She debated getting back to the job market, but instead recorded 'Try Me' and shared it on Soundcloud. The track immediately spread and now has labels bidding for the young star.
