Rapper Safaree Sameuls used to be a lot bigger than he is now. He was dating Nicki Minaj for over a decade from 2002-2014, but after they broke up, it seemed like he fell off the face of the earth. He’s said himself that he had some very rough times in the past, but all of that is over now. He’s a star on the VH1 reality show Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood, and there’s no looking back for him now. After his recent career resurgence, he has no one to thank more but the show’s producer, Mona Scott-Young. However, he thanked her in a pretty controversial way…
Safaree Samuels gave some pretty high praise recently to producer Mona Scott-Young on his Instagram account. The Love & Hip Hop producer apparently gave him a “fair shot” during one of the lowest and hardest points of his life, so it’s no surprise that he would want to send some good words her way. However, he may have gone a little too far with it.
The star from Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood didn’t give too many details about his life, but he did seem to reference his heartbreaking split from ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj. The two were together for over a decade, so it had to hurt pretty bad when they split.
His Instagram post read: “When I had the world against me without even knowing who I was you were the only person who gave me a fair shot.”
He continued with:
“Didn’t judge, didn’t assume, didn’t care who I was with or not… Had to be one of the darkest times in my life… Imagine helping build an empire, walking away from it with nothing and having everyone shun you just because you’re not the bigger star. IDGAF what anyone has to say, [Mona Scott-Young] you are out here saving lives and entertaining millions across the world… How could you hate on a black woman for doing that!! This is our Oprah whether you wanna admit it or not!!! Take it how you want… it’s facts!!!”
