New York rapper Safaree Samuels has cleared the air on rumors about being an uncredited writer for ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj.

Along with killing the ghostwriting rumor, Samuels also openly apologized to his former wifey.

Check out what backlash Safaree recently received right here…

New York radio station Hot 97 host Ebro slammed Safaree for speaking out on his relationship to Nicki publicly earlier this month.

“I spoke to Nicki yesterday and she was upset about all of this and I just told her to be patient because in a few weeks this will all be gone and no one will be talking about your ex and your old relationships, but she was most upset about the idea that someone else was writing her rhymes. He asserted that there was help. When you look at Nicki Minaj’s album credits, there’s a lot of people that work on albums… But when you assert that somebody wrote your rhymes – you know that’s Nicki’s thing. But I told you that’s why he did it, because he knew that would hurt you.” (Hot 97)

Ebro also questioned why Safaree did not take the time to venture out with his own business ventures.

“Like how you with Nicki Minaj and you can’t play the back my G? You know he was chilling get cars, motorcycles, living in the houses, all dat. You can’t just kick back, start a business? Buy a Dunkin Donuts, a Wing Stop, my G?” (Hot 97)

Samuels defended his decision to not bash Nicki in the media earlier the same week.

“I would never do anything publicly to try and pull her down. Whatever happens between me and her one on one, it is what is, you know and that’s personal and I would never put that out there. I could be out here telling a million stories and doing cornball sh*t like that, but I’m not going to do that, I never would do that and I never plan on doing that.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
