Dej Loaf Wants To Work With Missy, Nicki Minaj, Lil’ Kim, Remy Ma And Iggy Azalea

Dej Loaf discusses her dream collaborations, including working with Missy Elliott, Nicki Minaj, Lil' Kim, Remy Ma and Iggy Azalea.

Dej Loaf doesn’t plan on slowing down stopping anytime soon. The 23 year-old Detroit native has received major thumbs up for her latest single “Try Me,” and has collected stamps of approval for her mixtape Sell Sole.

Now, she has her eyes set out for a slew of major dream collaborations with some of the rap game’s most valuable players. In a recent interview with Paper magazine, Dej named all the artists she’d like to work with.

“I have something in mind for Missy Elliot, Charlie Wilson and DMX. People you haven’t seen in a while and who I grew up listening to,” she revealed. “I definitely want to work with legends.”

In addition to Missy, the Detroit freshman also expressed a desire work with other female emcees, despite the “catty” nature of the female rap lane.

“It’s hard, the whole beef thing and females’ catty attitudes. We only have Nicki Minaj and maybe Iggy. You don’t have many female hip-hop stars at all,” she continued. “And I think that’s the reason, because everybody wants to be on top, like how the guys do it. But there is room for all of us. That’s how I’m approaching it until problems are presented to me and I feel like acting on them. I’ll just do Dej. I won’t feed into it. I got love for everyone. I want to work with Nicki Minaj, I would work with Iggy, I already said Missy Elliott. I’d love to work with Lil Kim. I already worked with Remy Ma. Remy Ma is like one of my favorite rappers—female rappers anyway.” – Richy Rosario

Less than two weeks after becoming life partners with Hailey Baldwin, Justin Bieber returns to the studio where he's seen flexing his rap skills on his Instagram Stories.

The "Let Me Love You" singer rapped about his absence from pop culture, and his wife.

“Took a couple years off/Shed a couple tears, dawg/Been a victim of the system/I’m a Christian with a vision/My wife, yeah, I put her on a pedestal/My life is like a movie, The Incredibles," raps Bieber.

He also rapped about taking medication for his depression before borrowing a hook from 50 Cent's "Many Men."

“They put me on some medicine/Never thought that my depression would depend on it/Many men, wish death upon me/ Blood in my eye dog and I can’t see/I’m trying to be what I’m destined to be / And people trying to take my life away."

Tekahshi 6ix9ine Reportedly Signs New Record Deal Worth $10 Million

Rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine reportedly signed a $10 million record deal with his former label 10K Projects for two albums, TMZ reports.

It's said one of the projects will be in English while the other in Spanish. It's unclear what will happen to the deal if 6ix9ine is given less than the minimum 47-year-long sentence he faced before testifying against his former associates and Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods members.

Earlier today, Page Six reported that the rapper purchased new beats and plans to record music upon his release.

"It looks like he will be making music right away when he comes home," an anonymous music industry source told the outlet. "He already contacted a young NYC producer, and someone purchased two beats for him."

Last month,  it was reported that Tekashi denied witness protection after testifying against Anthony "Harv" Ellison and Aljermiah "Nuke" Mack, two Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods members, who have been found guilty.

The rapper born Daniel Hernandez pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy and eight other charges in January. 69's forthcoming sentencing is scheduled for December 18.

T.I. Calls Iggy Azalea's Music Career A Stain On His Legacy

T.I. isn't necessarily proud of his investment in Iggy Azalea's music career.

In an interview with The Root (Oct. 9), the Atlanta rapper revealed he's on the hunt to discover a new talented female rapper with bars so that he can undo the "blunder" of his former artist Iggy. The Dime Trap rapper added that the Australian rapper's career is a stain on his legacy as a label executive.

“I’m still actively looking for another female rapper who can undo the blunder of Iggy Azalea,” Tip said. “That is the tarnish of my legacy as far as [being] an [music] executive is concerned. To me, this is like when Michael Jordan went to play baseball.”

The Grand Hustle boss has not worked with the "Fancy" rapper since 2015. Tip signed the Aussie artist to his label back in 2011 shortly after she released her debut mixtape, Ignorant Art.

When asked about Xtaci, a girl duo Tip once worked with, T.I. said sometimes things get in the way.

“Sometimes people just grow up and find out that maybe their time, efforts and attention would be better applied elsewhere but, right now, we do have Tokyo Jetz.”  Jetz is a woman rapper on the Grand Hustle label. She is mostly known for her single "The One."
