Dej Loaf may not be that old in the business yet, but in the music world, she is of great importance. The Michigan beauty is best known for her popular song Try Me, which put her in the spotlight in 2014. Dej Loaf’s promising music career was a childhood dream that she now lives in a world that has embraced her style with open arms. The rapper, singer, and songwriter has worked with many renowned artists such as The Game and Eminem. Apart from the fact that she killed him on the mic, there is so much to know about the Michigan rap icon.
Dej Loaf Bio (Age)
She was born on April 8, 1991, in Detroit, Michigan, the daughter of her parents Latrice Hudson and Sidney Fritzgerald Trimble as Deja Trimble. When she lost her father at the age of 4, the singer, who witnessed the entire episode, continued to listen to music with her grandmother while her interest in art continued to grow. Eventually, Dej, whose inclination to music was fed to excess, began writing songs at the age of 9.
She and her brother had moved in with her grandmother, as her own mother was still very traumatized by her father’s early death. Even after a few years, the shock was still felt in the lives of the family members, especially with Dej, who often kept to herself at school. She soon found expression by writing her own songs to let off steam and to better deal with her grief and frustration; she hardly knew that she was building up a portfolio that would soon form the basis of her fame.
Dej Loaf attended Southeastern High School and graduated in 2009 before going to Saginaw Valley State University, also in Michigan, to study nursing. However, her interest in music outweighed her desire for an education, and so Dej Loaf retired from college after three semesters to concentrate fully on her music career. Under her own stage name, she ventured into music in 2011.
After two years of struggle and searching for support, she released her first mixtape “Just Do It” in 2013. The success of the production attracted the attention of rappers like SAYITAINTTONE, who later signed her to his record label IBGM (I Been Gettin’ Money). Under her direction, she released her groundbreaking track “Try Me”, which became a massive hit and was Gold Certified in the USA in 2015. The song, which made it to the Billboard charts, was further promoted by Canadian rapper Drake, who released part of it on his Instagram handle.
On her way to celebrity status, Dej signed a record deal with the prestigious label “Colombia Records” and soon released her second mixtape “Sell Sole” which was highly praised by the critics. In 2015 she had a gig on Nicki Minaj’s “The Pinkprint Tour” where she was booked to rap at the opening of the show. When she gained ground alongside rapper Lil Durk, she released the title “My Beyonce” in 2015. In the same year, she released her first EP, which was a huge success. Dej Loaf released her third mixtape “All Jokes Aside” in 2016, in the same year her debut album “Liberated” should be released.
Her Net Worth
The net assets of Dej Loaf are estimated at $2 million. The talented rapper owes this sum to the musical efforts she has collected over the course of her career. The release of one gold and one platinum-certified single was not only a plus for the records, but also increased the income of the talented rapper.
Loaf, who is considered one of the most popular rappers in the industry, also earns a lot of money from her music tours and shows. According to analyses, her net worth of $2 million could become an insignificant number in a few years, considering the rapper’s rapid rise to fame.
Personal Life – Sister, Husband, Is She Gay?
A lot has been said about Loaf’s brother, but not much has been heard about her sister. The rapper let the world know about her sister, a hairdresser when she published her photo on Instagram. The caption on the photo, which highlighted the relationship between the two, said it all. The fans were also convinced of the resemblance. What we don’t know, however, is why her sister was not painted in the picture of her childhood.
There were various speculations about the sexuality of the rapper. Considering her alpha-female appearance and her musical style, some considered Dej a lesbian. This speculation was further fuelled by the public outcry with her alleged ex-girlfriend Aye Redd. After joining forces with her colleague Lil Durkin 2015, Redd had punished Loaf for pretending to have a relationship with the opposite sex just to hide her gay sexuality. The rapper refuted these claims, however, arguing that she dressed like a tomboy only because she loved to feel comfortable, adding that girls just love her.
It was conversations about her sexuality that prompted further discussions about her marital status, with many wondering if the rapper had a husband. But according to Dej Loaf, she is single.
Body Stats, Height, and Weight
Deja Trimble may not be the biggest, but she certainly has the right body to fit her career. She stands at an average height of 5’2 and 3 quarters (159.4 cm), which is proportional to her weight of 56 kg (123 lb). Dej and her beautiful body of 33-25-35 fit in size 6 (USA) or 36 (EU) for her dresses, and she wears size 13 (USA) for her shoes.
