Who is Safaree? Can the $3M worth rapper get Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion's attention with his WAP remix?
Besides being known as Minaj’s hype man, Safaree gained popularity by participating in the reality shows ‘Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood’ and ‘Sacred Famous’
Behold! If you thought Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s latest drop WAP was a bit too explicit to wrap your head around, American rapper Safaree Samuels has gone one step ahead and released a remix version of the above song titled ‘BAD’, which is all the Internet is talking about. The 40-year-old singer/rapper took to Twitter to share the audio track of BAD along with the poster, which reads, “SAFAREE B.A.D BIG A** D%@K REFIX” and features Cardi B’s picture with Safaree in the background.
Similar to WAP, B.A.D boasts some raunchy lyrics as well, which has sparked a conversation among music fans, who seem to be debating over liking or dissing Safaree’s remix. The ‘Love & Hop Hop’ fame, who was pretty much MIA for quite some time, is now trending on Twitter, thanks to his new track that has tongues wagging. While BAD has definitely put him in the spotlight, Safaree is long-known for reasons unrelated to music.
Who is Safaree and how much is he worth?
Safaree made an advent into the music industry by joining the group called Hoodstars, which was formed in the early 2000s and consisted of Nicki Minaj, Lou$tar and Seven Up. However, after the group fell apart, Minaj focused on her solo career, while Safaree worked as her hype man. Rumors were rife for a long time that Safaree was penning down Minaj’s songs. He co-wrote ‘Did it On’em’ with Minaj for her debut studio album ‘Pink Friday’ and appeared in her music video ‘Stupid Hoe’ in 2012. He also has writing credits on some of her songs.
However, more than their professional relationship, Minaj and Safaree were known for their romance, which reportedly lasted for over a decade from 2000 to 2014. Reports suggested that Safaree was “uncontrollably jealous of her success, success he wanted for himself”, stating that as one of the reasons for their breakup. He is now married to actress Erica Mena, with whom he welcomed his daughter in February 2020. Besides being known as Minaj’s hype man, Safaree gained popularity by participating in the reality shows ‘Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood’ and ‘Scared Famous’. He’s allegedly worth $3 million according to celebrity net worth.
Will Cardi B and Stallion notice his B.A.D?
Ever since Safaree dropped BAD the Internet hasn't been able to stop themselves from talking about it. While the lyrics of the track has definitely turned heads, fans are dragging Cardi B and Stallion into the conversation to know their opinion. And some have reacted to the latest song with the funniest of tweets. One Twitter user wrote, "I'm going to reserve my comments until Safaree drops the video for BAD. It better have more meat than Arbys!" And one fan joked, "Nahh why safaree remix WAP. Somebody lock that man up"

And some Internet users are of the opinion that Safaree shouldn't have ever made the remix. One tweeted, "I Rolled my eyes so hard asking myself why was SAFAREE trending because I just knew it was gonna be for some stupid ass reason and well...here we are ..."
