When asked by Williams to what degree he contributed to Minaj’s music, Safaree said he was an important part. “It was a collaborative effort. She doesn’t sit there and do absolutely nothing, but you know, I definitely was a helping force in everything that had to do with creating music,” said Safaree.
As to what percentage of her music he worked on over their 12 years together, Safaree replied, “Everything.” He added that he hasn’t been paid for his contributions because there was never any paperwork drawn up to define his compensation. Safaree said he had begun the process of filing a lawsuit, but pulled back from it.
He then went on to explain his relationship with Minaj fell apart because they grew apart. He blamed the split in part on Meek Mill, who Safaree introduced to Minaj.
When Williams tried to dig for clues on Minaj’s behind-the-scenes reputation as well as whether or not she’s had plastic surgery, Safaree stayed vague, but noted that Minaj’s camp attempted to block him from going on the show.
Rap lovers who are team Remy shouldn’t be too excited by Safaree’s interview with Williams mainly because his story on his contribution has changed repeatedly. Just two years ago Safaree was insisting on Twitter that Minaj wrote her own raps.
In a now deleted tweet, he wrote, “the witty and smart things that she says! i dnt kno about other ppl but i kno when it comes to writing flow n delivery she is 1 of the best.” Within the same series of tweets, he also wrote, “she is wayyy more than capable of writing a album on her own without me! shes not a dumb person, so its easy for smart ppl to come up with.”
The theory that he was a major contributor also falls apart when one considers Safaree hasn’t been able to build any musical success as a solo artist.
