Young Hawaii present
Friday, June 17
Blaisdell Concert Hall
“DEJ LOAF PERFORMING LIVE” will present Rapper DeJ Loaf, born Deja Trimble, grew up on the east side of Detroit, Michigan and started writing lyrics at a young age. In July 2014, two years after she released her first mixtape, she uploaded “Try Me,” a low-key, melodic track, which caught the attention of Drake, who referenced it on Instagram. The platinum-selling star’s acknowledgment increased DeJ’s profile exponentially and set off a wave of unauthorized versions from fellow rappers. (DeJ did approve of a version that featured a verse from Wiz Khalifa.) She signed to Columbia, released a second mixtape, and appeared on the Aftermath release “Detroit vs. Everybody” beside fellow Detroiters Eminem, Royce da 5’9″, Big Sean, Danny Brown, and Trick Trick. Columbia’s official release of “Try Me” reached the Top Ten of Billboard’s Hot Rap Songs chart. Second single “We Good,” was released as her second major-label single. After a handful of headlining gigs. In 2015 she issued the #AndSeeThatsTheThing EP along with the hit single “Back Up” featuring Big Sean.
