Drake may be releasing a remix to Detroit rapper DeJ Loaf's "Try Me" sometime soon.
Drake already has a handle on the rap game, but it seems he's really focusing on breaking artists these days. Over the last year or so we've seen him add verses to tracks from Migos, Soulja Boy, Tinashe, and most recently, iLoveMakonnen, often fast-tracking them to the big leagues.
While these co-signs generally come unannounced, we may have caught on to Drizzy's latest venture, a buzzing single from Detroit rapper DeJ Loaf. The hypnotically catchy street record, "Try Me" has been popping up all over Drake and his OVO buddies' Instagram accounts, from Drizzy quoting it in photo captions, to the label's resident tastemaker Oliver El-Khatib soundtracking a video with the record.
The most recent clue came when Drake followed DeJ Loaf, and later commented on her celebratory "Drake followed me!" post with what seem to be some bars written for the song. "Wearing all white when I'm feeling godly/ Free my nigga Baka, man he just called me", he wrote, interpolating DeJ's lyrics, and referencing a member of his crew who was arrested earlier this summer.
If Drake is about to add a verse to "Try Me", we're sure DeJ Loaf won't mind. Check out the original track below.
[Update: Wiz Khalifa Posts Remix Snippet]
Regardless of whether or not Drake will hop on the song, it seems Wiz Khalifa will definitely be contributing a verse. The Blacc Hollywood rapper posted a snippet of his own version of "Try Me" to Instagram last night.
It's unclear whether Drake and Wiz will appear on the same version (or rather, whether Drake will do a remix at all), but it would be a pretty big deal, particularly for DeJ, but also for the two rappers, who have never officially collaborated on a song before.
Watch the clip from Wiz below.
