DeJ Loaf and Big Sean Ask Haters to ‘Back Up’ on Rubbery New Song

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.
