Why does he care?
Nicki Minaj isn’t exactly a straight-edge artist. She’s willfully admitted to smoking weed in the past — not that you’d be able to guess that from the reaction to a recent video of her partaking.
After a video of Nicki getting lifted made its way around the internet, folks couldn’t wait to chime in, and that goes double for her former flame Safaree. Nicki’s famous ex took a second to poo-poo her decision on social media.
While Safaree didn’t name Minaj in the clip, he was clearly talking about her as he looked sad into his phone camera and dropped some corny dramatic pauses into his interminable statement.
“If you wait until your mid-30s to pick up a bad habit and show it off to everyone like it’s cool, you need help,” he said in part.
Keeps On Talking
Safaree hasn’t exactly been shy about talking about his ex, considering it’s his only link to anything resembling fame. His desperate grabs have gotten more and more frequent recently, probably because he has a reality TV show to promote.
Though Nicki and Cardi seem to have steered clear of any beef — they’ve been choosing their words carefully so as not to ignite a war that the fans seem to want badly — Safaree had no issue saying that Nicki is hearing Cardi’s footsteps.
On a recent episode of Everyday Struggle Samuels said that he knows that Nicki is feeling the pressure from the “Bodak Yellow” hitmaker before adding that he liked Nicki’s sound better when he was a part of it.
“It’s very different. Like how she was before when we was doing ‘Roman’s Revenge’ and ‘Did It On Em,’” he said. “I know and understand people say you gotta grow and excel and change but I like the old her better.”
He also claimed that Nicki owed him big money for vague work he did on The Pinkprint:
“As far as that whole process goes, it was a collaborative process,” he told Wendy Williams. “She doesn’t sit there and do absolutely nothing, but I definitely was a helping force in everything that had to do with creating music.”

He also called out unspecified people involved with the creation of the album “crooked ass n*ggas” for what he sees as gaming him out of his cut. If that wasn’t enough, Safaree also got into his feelings over the summer. The rapper tweeted at Nicki Minaj saying that she was supposed to have a child with him after Nicki’s other ex Meek Mill called her “the one.”
“I really want a kid,” he wrote. “Nicki you were suppose to have my child.. I can’t believe this is life.”
Safaree quickly deleted the tweet. But the internet is forever. It never forgets. Fans were quick to call him out on his strange hot and cold behavior toward Nicki and clown him for being so publicly emotional over a relationship that ended years ago.
