Sometimes getting imitated is a sure sign that you've arrived. But in some music circles, you aren't legit until you get interviewed by the infamous Nardwuar the Human Serviette — which is where Detroit rapper DeJ Loaf finds herself.
The eccentric interviewer is known for his savant-like abilities to soak up random bits of information about his subjects — a list that reads like a who's who of pop music.
In his latest interview, posted Wednesday, Nardwuar quizzes DeJ on other "Loafs" in the music business. In typical fashion, he digs up something from his subject's past — in this case, DeJ's first song she posted to YouTube.
Leyland “Lee” DeVito is the editor in chief of Detroit Metro Times since 2016. His writing has also been published in CREEM, VICE, In These Times, and New City. He once asked porn star Stormy Daniels to spank him with an issue of Metro Times. She obliged.
