Safaree Samuels and Nicki Minaj are no strangers to throwing shade at one another since calling off their longtime relationship last year, but it appears Safaree is reigniting his ongoing diss war with ex-girlfriend Minaj in a new track, titled “Shade Room.”
Just weeks after Safaree blasted his nearly 12-year relationship with Nicki Minaj in a scathing diss track, “Lifeline,” Samuels continues to make headlines for his freestyle raps that are often aimed at Minaj and her relationship with Philly rapper Meek Mill.
Safaree’s new track features an appearance from Philly Swain and will be a part of Samuel’s upcoming mixtape, titled, It Is What It Is Vol. 2, Urban Islandz reports.
In “Shade Room,” Safaree Samuels takes aim at Nicki Minaj by calling her “the black Britney Spears” before explaining that he couldn’t be like Spears’ former partner, Kevin Federline.
“I entertain, I’m so set / Y’all n****s starve, I’m so fed / I used to have the black Britney Spears / But I couldn’t be the black K-Fed.”
Samuels and Minaj ended their longtime relationship in 2014, just months before Nicki began making headlines for her rumored romance with Meek Mill.
While Safaree has taken several jabs at Minaj and Meek Mill’s romance, oftentimes implying that Nicki gave up her longtime relationship with Samuels in favor of a more highly publicized relationship with Meek Mill, Samuels previously explained to Us Weekly that his intentions are never to publicly damage Minaj’s reputation.
“I would never do anything publicly to try and pull her down,” Safaree revealed shortly after Nicki Minaj released her latest album, The Pinkprint.
While Nicki Minaj claims that she ended things with Safaree because he was unfaithful in their relationship, Samuels slammed his ex by revealing that Nicki treated him “like an employee” rather than a partner after her status as a rapper took off.
“I just got to the point where the respect wasn’t there,” Samuels explains, noting that Minaj began to treat him as an employee rather than a romantic partner.
Safaree further alleges that Minaj was jealous over his desire to start his own rap career after serving as Nicki’s hype man for years, prompting the “Anaconda” rapper to blast Safaree on Twitter back in December.
“Wanted fame. I gave u my blessing. I still love. I still love. I still love. I’ll always love. So disappointed,” Minaj wrote on Twitter, referencing lyrics from her “Pills N Potions” track.
Despite the duo’s initially amicable split, Samuels took aim at Minaj and Meek Mill in July after rumors began suggesting that Nicki and Meek were secretly engaged.
In his diss track, “Lifeline,” Samuels raps about serving as Nicki Minaj’s ghostwriter before shaming her for trying to hide their longtime relationship for the sake of her career.
“What a shame / It took a split for them to know I was your man / Got so tired of hidin’ it / Head high with no pride in it / Guess I wasn’t cool enough cause in our pictures we hidin’ it / Twelve years up in flames / Thought you woulda had my kid / Year 3 got engaged / Now we movin’ out of rage,” Samuels raps in “Lifeline.”
While both Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj lashed out at Samuels’ ghostwriting claims shortly after he dropped the eyebrow-raising track, it doesn’t appear Safaree has any plans to put his relationship with Nicki Minaj behind him.
In addition to blasting Minaj on his new track, “Shade Room,” Samuels also takes aim at Meek Mill by implying that the Philly rapper has to dye his hair black in order to cover up emerging grey hair.
“No Mountain Dew, but it’s Code Red / No Skeletor, you a bonehead / Heard you dye your hair, you an old head,” Safaree raps, referencing slang from Meek Mill’s Philadelphia roots.
While neither Nicki Minaj nor Meek Mill have commented on Safaree’s latest diss track, fans have taken to social media to praise the Jamaican rapper for continuing to release new music.
