There’s something special about Dej Loaf – she’s immensely talented, bitingly original, and extremely attractive. She can rap her ass off wearing a Kangol bucket hat, ripped jeans, and sneakers or turn heads on the red carpet in a Vera Wang dress and matching heels. Versatility is the name of the game. She may not release as much music as fans would like due to her busy schedule, but she keeps the world watching on Instagram where she posts herself doing just about anything. Her 5.2 million followers can attest to the fact that she’s a thrill to watch.
With over 90 posts, sifting through them to find the best could be a daunting task. To save you the trouble, we decided to go through them and pick out the ones that you need to see. Take a seat, grab some popcorn and tune into the Best of Instagram: Dej Loaf.
Mary J. Loaf
Dej channels her inner Mary J here and does it better than the original. If looking at this picture gave you an urge to go listen to “Real Love,” do yourself a favor and turn on “No Fear” instead.
New York Fashion Week Loaf
Remember the days when she had the shorter hair cut? She looks great with the longer-do. Her jacket’s open enough at the top to have us guessing as to what lies underneath.
Nineteen Eighty Loaf
Is it the filter or the crazy assortment of colors that invokes a nostalgic feeling upon viewing this picture? Could it be the crouch or the confidence that make this photo not just one of Dej Loaf’s best, but one of Hip Hop’s best images of 2017? We’ll let you decide.
Just Loafing Around
Untethered, unbothered, and unwavering – Dej Loaf in the flesh. She’s even barefoot for people who have a slight foot fetish. It’s a shame this only received Instagram attention – she should have used this for actor headshots.
Enter The Loaftrix
Look, we know that black is Loaf’s color. Her shirt and shades make her look at home in any of the movies in the Matrix Trilogy. What do you think she’s looking at?
Loaf Me Home
It looks like Dej turned up nicely for her birthday. Her sexy ensemble looks even better compared to the serious look plastered on her face.
She wore a suit. She has on a tie. That means she isn’t playing any games. She also looks stunning in it, further making her case for being one of the most beautiful women to come out of Detroit.
This picture is clearly in homage to Missy Elliot’s “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly).” With near identical outfits and hairstyles, the two artists resemble each other to a certain extent. The image is tastefully done and she looks amazing doing it.
Lists: 4 Virginia Artists You Should Get Familiar With
Virginia’s a state that sits on the East Coast of the United States but draws inspiration from the best of the country’s current Hip Hop trends. D.R.A.M.’s the latest artist to break out of the state, but there’s a ton of talent that sits ready to unveil itself in due time. The influence of Virginia legends Pharrell, Missy Elliott, Timbaland, and The Clipse is evident in the outlandish nature of many of its artists’ styles and has drawn a spotlight to the state as of late. Guessing who’s going to blow up next is anyone’s guess.
That’s why we’ve put together a list of some of the biggest artists in the state. Whether they’re actually good or not is up to your discretion – they’ve captured the interests of people at a national level, so go figure. But if you’re not up to date on what’s happening in the Commonwealth State, take a gander at who’s who below.
Back in 2013 when Crazy released “Get Dumb,” it quickly went viral because of its guttural look into life in Norfolk. Since then, Crazy has consistently released the type of music that his growing base of fans want to hear. He’s worked with legendary producer Timbaland as well as opened up for Young Thug at NSU, promoted to main act when Thugger never showed up. He also recently connected with 40 VAN for a performance in Texas.
He’s poised for a quick takeoff sooner than later. It’s important to know that his success didn’t happen overnight – he’s been about this for a while now. Take a listen to some of his music and become a fan.
Standouts: “Lessons” and “Painter Clique”
When you think of atmospheric trap music in Virginia, Treez should be the first name you think of. He’s been on the scene for years, acting as a mysterious force that drops acclaimed projects that seem to come out of nowhere. He recently connected with the A$AP Mob and has become a member of A$AP Rocky’s AWGE collective. The future is bright for young Treez.
Standouts: “Watch” and “Not At All”
There aren’t many rappers nowadays that play live instruments on stage. A defining part of Masego’s persona is that he’s a master saxophone player – and it’s not an act. The release of his breakout hit “Girls That Dance” made him an overnight celebrity, serving as a culmination of years of hard work in the college circuit. Now, he amongst relocating to Los Angeles to perfect his sound, he’s been spotted with DJ Jazzy Jeff and J Cole.
Standouts: “Navajo” and “Send Yo Rita”
Have you ever heard of “Galaxy Trap?” It’s a genre that Levi Carter has created and perfected. His artistry has gotten him a deal with Roc Nation and he continues to release music, albeit slowly. He’s a breath of fresh air in the rap scene, with hard-hitting bars that pave the way for some serious growth potential. We can’t wait to see where he goes.
Standouts: “You Not Gang” and “Dear Mama”
Best of Instagram: Katt Leya
Katt Leya’s pretty mysterious for a rising model. Although you can easily come across pictures of her and videos of her dancing on the internet, finding out who exactly she is is a little harder. Here’s what we do know: she’s beautiful, voluptuous, and she likes anime. She also keeps it real on her Twitter account.
She’s also watches anime so if you’re into Dragonball Z, Hunter x Hunter, or One Punch Man, you may have a shot.
There’s one oddity about her: she eats fries with mayonnaise. So maybe she’s more off kilter than she lets on.
Regardless of her questionable food tastes, she’s someone that we can’t wait to see rise in the modeling and entertainment world. Her Instagram account features more of her pictures, giving more insight into who she is as a person. We decided to peruse through the account and gather some of the best posts four our latest Best of Instagram list.
What looks better – her or that slice of cake?
The cup looks like it’s empty.
Yellow is definitely her color.
Shades of Pink
Pink hair, blonde hair, hell, maybe even blue hair. It can all work.
It seems like she’s a fan of animal print pillows.
Pink and Orange
Pink and orange are her colors as well.
