A snippet of the new tune, which was initially expected to premiere later this week, bubbled online hours prior.

Safaree’s song, “Love The Most” will be released at the end of the week, but we got hold of it, and he’s airing as much dirty laundry as he can in 5 minutes. At one point he says Nicki made him look like Bozo the Fool, rapping: “Had to watch you kiss Nas and pretend it’s all cool / Inside I was feeling like a motha f**king fool.” Their 12-year relationship ended in December, and Minaj quickly rebounded with Meek Mill.

New York radio station Hot 97 host Ebro slammed Safaree for speaking out publicly on his relationship with Nicki a few months ago.

“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)

Samuels defended his decision to not bash Nicki in the media days prior.

“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”)
