(AllHipHop News) After dropping the tracklist yesterday, Detroit femcee Dej Loaf releases her highly anticipated effort All Jokes Aside .
The project is a big one for Dej and her team as All Jokes Aside is a coming-of-age project according to a statement for the press.
“There comes a time in a girl’s life, where she becomes a young woman. It’s called growth, it’s called maturity, it’s called living life to the full potential and being true to who you are. That’s what I represent. I feel good about everything that I am doing right now, because it is what I want to do. Not what anyone else wants me to do; it’s what I want to do. I’m in charge. I run my show. It feels damn good,” said in a statement.
The cover art features Dej posing nude from the waist up and also incorporates artistic qualities, as the artwork is touched up with use of her signature color yellow.
Sonny Digital, Izze the Producer, DDS, KLVN and iRocksays round out production on the effort.
Dej also calls upon Silkk the Shocker for a guest appearance as the lone feature on the project. Silkk is known for his work on No Liimit and is still signed to his brother Master P’s No Limit Forever Imprint.
Dej tackles a host of issues on the project, but truly bears it all on “Chase Mine”
On the track Dej addresses writing her own music, her sexuality, whether or not she would have an abortion and of course getting back on her “rap sh*t.”
