WHAT HAPPENED TO DEJ LOAF? Alleged Ex-Girlfriend, "Stolen" Flow, + MORE!
okay okay whoa whoa it's good to have you with us
what's up everybody welcome back to the golden baby Channel I hope you all are doing well during this time but today we're gonna talk about a seemingly forgotten talent in a female rap industry and that is - love - love is a very melodic rapper who'd hit big in 2014 with her song try me her style of rap was and is very much different than the mainstream female rappers of 2019 and 2020 that statement alone probably tells you a lot as far as why she isn't as big as some of the other female artists or why her career didn't last as long but we're still going to dig a little deeper into her career and see
loafdays was born and raised in Detroit Michigan as a small child she resided with both her parents up until when she was four years old her father was shot and killed outside their home leaving Dages mother no choice but to move - and her two brothers to their grandmothers house - Love has admitted that her grandmother was a drug dealer and in one of her latest songs she recalls being six years old and witnessing her grandmother deal with those substances as a child days used to always listen to music with her mom and her grandmother and even started writing her own music at age nine she also took a liking to basketball and said that everybody thought she would grow up to be a basketball player fast forward to her teen years stage graduated high school in 2009 and...
then went on to pursue nursing and university but after a year and a half they should quit school to pursue music in 2013 she released her first mixtape titled just do it that got her signed to label I BGM a year later in 2014 she released try me a song that she was skeptical about putting out at first but it ended up changing her life after she uploaded the track to SoundCloud it just took off from there try me is a successful record that jump-started Asia's mainstream career as of 2020 it's currently sitting at 93 million views on YouTube after try-me was released days later signed to Columbia Records in October of 2014 and also released her mixtape sells soul under her first label I BGM that same month she then released her first EP under Columbia in 2015 titled and see that's the thing which included tracks hey there backup and desire around this time rumors started going around that she was dating Chicago rapper Lil Durk the two of them were seen out together a lot and she was wearing his chain around her neck and it seemed as if the two of them confirmed their relationship with their collaboration on a song called my Beyonce days and Dirk quickly became relationship goes even if they never really confirmed or denied the relationship but this is possibly the first incident and Asia's career that may have offset her potential audience because up until this point most people believe that dais was not into men partially because of the way she dressed cuz...
stage is definitely
moreof a tomboy which is very stereotypical to determine someone's orientation based off of clothing but I guess is
whatit is but it wasn't just a choice of clothing it was also her demeanor and the way she answered certain questions so many people her demeanor was also a giveaway that she was in some women and when everydays was asked a question of her orientation she never directly answered she would skip around the question and only ever denied being a which no one wants to be considered as anyway you know do you think people think you are yeah I figure it out I'm not I'm not a saying anyway I don't I'm not none of it how's the love do you take girls guys I do you have a preference or is it just
whatever you feel like I don't great answer it also doesn't help that once news of little dark in days
loafpossibly being a couple made the headlines they just
girlfriendspoke up about dirt in Paige only being in a PR relationship store are you in days Lowe's together or not have you ever been together we definitely were together I think everyone knows that I see everyone in a city you know
whatI'm saying you got to be a blind you know a blind fool to not see that you know I was everywhere with there yeah I did everything with her I mean damn I was in there part of her team you know
whatI'm saying when it came to everything she was doing so you can you definitely knew I was literally broke up OKC...
broke up so are you friends now we were friends until the blogs see Charlie did you know she charges like that humiliated me publicly you know
whatI'm saying that's so like you came back and you tried to reconcile and you try to you know see my friend again only to do it again only to humiliate me publicly like all I did was make it look like I was a bitter ex who's jealous over a fake relationship between her and dark and that's not relationship with her in dark if he is that's ad because we were all in the studio not songs all three of us together so 9:30 in the morning she also stated that date cheated on her with Dasia stylist Karen or Cara of which the stylist boyfriend leaked text between the two as well basically trying to out them or put them out the closet now you may be wondering why I'm calling this an incident in her career well the truth is that first and foremost in this type of Industry you don't want to confuse your audience sure there are plenty of people who are a part of the lesbian community who rap and sing and have successful careers in their own path but if we're being honest unless you are a mostly feminine woman who goes both ways and you're leaning
moretowards men or you're seeing around
moremen you are likely to be boxed into a certain demographic and that could potentially put limits on your career it's a whole concept that some people probably would need
moredetail to understand but that's just...
another topic for another day but once again there's never confirmed or denied her orientation or her
girlfriendbut many people believe that her team and label were pushing her to be something that she's not and if that's true than
whatI just said holds a lot of weight as a new artist you don't want to confuse your potential audience and going forward in your career you don't want to be boxed in but moving along from that days in dirt eventually broke up or maybe they were never even together days posted that she was single on Instagram in late 2016 then released it makes April jacquees called fo friendzone which of course sparked
moredating rumors between those two however - completely denounced any relationship with anyone when asked about both Cui's am durk days claims to have been single for years somebody from Chicago yeah I won't talk about you can't but I've been single for like you know but you took to your your social media and you were like I'm single and then there was a response from jacquees which i thought was interesting because he was like okay you single now guys got a mixtape and the chemistry on that if a friendzone mixtape is it's very interesting so I want to know how that come about you working with Jack Reese and keeping it in the studio he's just a cool cool guy in early summer two thousand eighteen days released a song called liberated with Leon bridges which is about just being your's...
without fear of judgement at this point in 2018 day loves music was still wrapped but also a little pop with a lot of feel-good mood lifting tracks as well days was supposed to release her first official album also titled liberated in 2018 but it didn't make it out instead she released an EP titled gold age go under a label called yellow world which I assume is Dages label being that days never released an album under Columbia Records and that she was supposed to release liberated but it never saw the light of day it could mean that she possibly had some conflict with the label Columbia as many artists do that would also impact her career in late 2000 19 days hinted at her new official album sell soul - she confirmed this though after she dropped her new single called bubbly in February of 2020 she states that bubbly is a true reflection of her as an artist and as a person and it's a leading single from her new album she has also been featured on a few songs in the past couple of years by artists like Jada kids and tink so there really isn't an exact answer of why day's lows I guess you could say fell off another thing though is that she doesn't rely on her body and appeal to capture an audience and unfortunately in this society if you're not willing to do that to some extent there's only so many areas you can fit into also she's not very active or consistent she doesn't put out much music at a time and she's not really doing anything...
on social media once again with this society social media is big being able to relate to celebrities is big and for new artists if you can't microwave a hit song in a timely manner you risk being an afterthought so all of those things including the possibility of having issues with her label as well as her audience being come on her image seem to have affected - loath still though her cadence and style of rap is a popular sound many artists have been low-key accused of jacking days love style I think as an artist I mean I I don't go in the studio trying to sound like anyone like I'm already sure that before I even go like I hear
what's going on I hear - I hear the sound I hear
what's going on I'm always trying to just create new things and set trends and you know like I say that's why even today like that my melodies are still being used and yeah you got real-life singles and platinum records of my melody you know so talk yes so do you ever get something like say if you are in the same room with one of those people on a solo tip would you address it address it like
whatwhy you still must put the swagger jacket on Front Street I mean like I said I did I come I came to terms with it like y'all like people are gonna do it
whatI don't like about it
whatI don't respect about it is when people aren't honest about it you know I mean but that's me being humble and just not addressing it like you say like I don't really you...
know you don't hear about me just too much like yo he stole must a few years ago a boogie was called out by rapper Lil B for sounding too much like days
