Nicki Minaj Announces New K-Mart Collection, and Hit with Lawsuit by Ex – “Tha Wire” [VIDEO]
TMZ reports the you know what is about to hit the fan between Nicki Minaj and her ex love, producer/rapper Safaree Samuels. Dude is not only bitter, but he's going after the rap femcee's bank account now. Samuels career began rapping in a group with Minaj, called The Hoodstars in the early 2000s. The two dated for a few years and after a few years their high profile relationship came to an abrupt end.
It's been straight drama ever since then, with the two taking constant shots at one another on social media. Safaree even dropped a track throwing shade at his ex and her Boo Meek called, "Lifeline." Check his track below and see what ol' "SB Stunts" is working with.
Soooo, whatcha think? I must say, he and Nicki do have a similar delivery. On the track he claims he was an unaccredited songwriter on Nicki's The Pinkprint, Pink Friday and "Roman's Revenge." Safaree also says he was the Young Money rappers ghost writer and he's responsible for her hits like “Only,” “Feeling Myself” and “Flawless (Remix) and more.
Speaking of which, TMZ reports "SB Stunts" just filed a lawsuit based on those alleged facts and suing to cash-in all the profits from all three albums. That's not, he wants a portion of the royalties from the mega hits he's claims he wrote.
AllHipHop reports the Brooklyn native did indeed play a role in her music making process and just may have Nicki Minaj against the wall this. Though Samuels complains about not getting his props for songwriting, he was credited as the executive producer for Pink Friday and The Pinkprint.
That may be all Safaree needs to collect a ton of loot. To further help his case, dude reportedly has a slew of evidence to prove his allegations such as a boatload of video footage of him and Nicki in the studio, plus various voice memos from studio sessions, not to mention multiple witnesses to validate his contribution to her music.
On this I'll keep you posted, but it sounds like he's gonna put a choke-hold on her wallet.
In other news and speaking of Nicki's wallet, the rap star continues to collect from other business ventures outside of music. The Queen Barb recently announced she's going unveil some new items for her fashion line at K-Mart on Black Friday. In addition, she's also premiering a limited edition couture line that wont be on K-Mart racks.
