Nicki Minaj’s ex Safaree Samuel stopped at NYC radio show spilling ALL THE TEA about his messy break up after their 12 year relationship!
WHAT HE WAS TO NICKI:
Everything. Decisions weren’t made without me. That was my soulmate. That wasn’t like somebody I was just working with. People thought, ‘Oh I was just a hype man.’ No. We were calling all the shots.
HOW THEY CAME TOGETHER:
We were in a group together, called the Hood Stars. We did the group thing for about two years, it didn’t really work out. So she branched out and did her solo thing. We packed up two cars, went to Atlanta. We just started bubbling from there. We were friends for a year and a half at first and then a relationship started.
ON WRITING NICKI’S LYRICS:
“Don’t say ‘Oh, I don’t have no talent’ because every time it came to writing raps and doing music, it was me, her and a beat. She doesn’t do it by herself. It was me and her. Don’t discredit me on what I’ve done for you, that’s weak. I would never do that for her. All I’m saying is this is something me and her did together. That doesn’t take away from what she’s done. She’s at the top of her league.” read on below…

IF IT WAS HARD PUTTING HIS ASPIRATIONS ON THE BACK BURNER:
It wasn’t hard at all because I’m not gonna act like that’s what I wanted to be so bad. We were in a rap group together, yeah, I rapped with her, but I just enjoyed entertainment. So whether I was in the front of the mic or playing in the back with her, I just enjoyed entertainment.
WHY HE NEEDED TO SPEAK OUT AFTER SHE DISSED HIM ON INSTAGRAM:
I would never do anything publicly to try to like, pull her down. Whatever happens between me and her one-on-one, it is what it is. That’s personal and I would never put that out there. I could be out here telling a million stories and doing cornball sh*t like that but I’m not going to do that. I never would do that. I never plan on doing that. I just think it’s crazy for her to come out now and try to pull me down, try to say I’m corny. I don’t care who you’re with. I want you to move on because I’m moving on. I walked away from the situation. I’m not going to say I broke up with her, but I’m the one who packed up my stuff and I left.
WHY THINGS DIDN’T WORK OUT:
It just got to a point where the respect was gone. Everyone around her works for her. It got to the point where it was like, I’m your man, I’m the one you go to sleep with every night. I’m who you wake up with every morning. It got to the point where I was being treated like an employee instead of her man.WHY THEY KEPT THEIR RELATIONSHIP A SECRET:
I really don’t understand it myself. I used to be like, there’s no way people really don’t know. And if you don’t know it’s like you either want to be naive because you’re stupid, or you’re living in a fairy world. I just never understood that.
IF HE HAD A PROBLEM WITH HER BEING SO “FRIENDLY” WITH DRAKE AND LIL WAYNE:
As far as the “Only” song, that’s something that people on the outside take as disrespect more than I did. Maybe I’ve been dealing with it for so long that it seemed like the norm to me. I got numb to it. It was like…it is what it is. I could probably feel a way about it, but I’ll get over it, it is what it is and I’ll just keep it moving. I definitely feel like there was some stuff that didn’t have to be done. READ MORE at madamenoire
