Detroit native DeJ Loaf gained mass appeal last year with her smash hit “Try Me”. Since then she has been proving that she is much more than a “one-hit wonder”. DeJ’s EP #AndSeeThatsTheThing, which was released in July of this year, gave listeners a chance to get better acquainted with the double-threat emcee as she showcased her own R&B skills behind that soft voice. As fans await for a debut album by DeJ Loaf, she revisits #AndSeeThatsTheThing and delivers a brand new visual to “Back Up” featuring fellow Detroit native Big Sean.
In the “Back Up” video, you can find Loaf and friends hitting up a local roller rink and demonstrating some pretty dope skate-work. Be sure to keep an eye on this 2015 XXL Freshman as she continues to blossom into a Hip Hop vet.

“Trap Queen” hit-maker Fetty Wap has been crushing numbers and milestones all year. The New Jersey native was chosen as part of the XXL magazine 2015 Freshman Class, but he is doing things in Hip Hop most vets couldn’t achieve. He became the first male rapper with three songs in the top 20 spots on the Billboard Hot 100 chart since Eminem did so in 2013. He also became the first male rapper in four years to have singles reach the top 10 of the same chart at the same time since Lil Wayne did so in 2011. With his fourth single “Again”, Wap became the first act in the Hot Rap Songs chart’s 26-year history to chart his first four entries in the top 10 simultaneously.
Wap’s third single, “My Way,” peaked at number seven on the Billboard Hot 100. As of this month, the single has sold over 534,000 copies domestically.

It’s no secret that there is some bad blood between rappers Lil Wayne and Young Thug. It’s also no secret that they share a similar sound. But when it was made known that the Free Weezy Album and Slime Season would drop on the same day, the line between Weezy and Thugger was further blurred.
Well, the 4th of July came and the dueling debut never happened. Young Thug’s mixtape was repeatedly pushed back with no confirmed reason. Since then we have been hearing leaks and snippets of new music by Thug, but given no information on where this music was going.
Today we finally give listeners further evidence for the Young Thug/Lil Wayne comparison controversy, with the release of Young Thug’s Slime Season mixtape. Check it out for yourself below and let us know if you will “Pump It or Dump It”?
