DeJ Loaf and Big Sean Ask Haters to ‘Back Up’ on Rubbery New Song
The Detroit rappers aren't fooling around, but they're certainly having a blast
DeJ Loaf’s opening Nicki Minaj’s Pinkprint tour later this month, but before she hits the road, she’s dropping new ones like today’s “Back Up,” a bump-and-grinder that features Big Sean. The song cops the rubbery “I Don’t Fuck With You” beat and screws it, tossing in clappier synthesizers and some off-beat slapping. It’s been exciting to see the young Detroit rapper climb to her rightful position among hip-hop’s reigning class, but here she is holding her own alongside Sean — here at his loosest, which is the best Big Sean — like they’re old friends.
