[With his past run with Nicki Minaj behind him and a blazing “Burner” music video sparking attention, New York hip-hop free agent Safaree Samuels tells SOHH what he wants from an ideal record label situation.]

I definitely need my creative freedom. I can’t deal with someone coming on my back and saying, “No, you can’t do this. You can’t a song with this person. You can’t bring this person out at your show.” I can’t deal with that type of stuff.

That’s one thing that I’m not going to let happen to me.

I want to be able to have other artists. I want to be able to sign artists. I want people to be like, “That’s ill, too. You can spot good talent.”

I’m using this platform for myself to build myself up and then build up other people that are dope too.
