The chapter is closed
Believe it or not, Safaree Samuels still has a pulse. After being annihilated by his ex-girlfriend, Nicki Minaj, on a multitude of platforms, you would have thought that his career was on life support. Well, on the contrary, he’s actually doing pretty well for himself. He tacked on a new role and is a member on VH1’s Love and Hip Hop: Hollywood. He also is aggressively attacking his rap aspirations head-on. In an interview with Billboard, he broke down his current standing on his fallout with Nicki Minaj and more.
Safaree and Nicki Minaj have finally…
Moved on. That’s right, the former couple have finally let go of any possible remnants of their storied relationship. “Yeah, we don’t have any relationship. We don’t speak. No lawsuits either,” explained SB during his interview with Billboard . He also mentioned how the media blew things way out of proportion.
Blame the Media
“That whole court thing got blown out of proportion because people wanted to react. But if there was a court situation, you guys would’ve saw it. There’s no hiding,” said Safaree. He also touched on the issue of ghostwriting in hip hop, something he and Nicki Minaj wrestled each other over in the past.
Safaree finds nothing wrong with ghostwriting
“We’re in the era now where it doesn’t matter who writes your stuff because when you really think about it, people don’t even care what the artists is saying,” he said.
“The old school era cares about what people are writing but they’re not even the ones buying records. It’s these young people who are buying records, and they don’t care who’s writing the raps. But in the business, it’s more of a pride and ego thing, where people are like, ‘Ain’t nobody gonna say they write my raps.'”
