Safaree has shared another reminder of just how far back he and Nicki Minaj really go, proving with a throwback video that theirs was more than just a romantic partnership.

The Love & Hip Hop star took to his Instagram Stories on Saturday (January 6) to share a video of the head Barb spitting a verse back in her days as a member of the group The Hoodstarz. Safaree, who also appears in the clip, took the opportunity to brag about his own skills on the mic in the video

“Safaree got bars,” read the caption. “We all gotta start somewhere.”

In the years since their 2014 breakup, Safaree has shared many throwback photos and videos of his time with the “Starships” rapper.

Back in 2022, the Brooklyn native seemingly acknowledged Nicki’s 40th birthday celebration by reposting a photo to his Instagram story from over a decade ago when the pair were romantically involved

The image — which was initially shared by rapper Loustar (another former member of The Hoodstarz) and reposted by The Source — captures an early studio session of the group clad in matching throwback jerseys.

Before re-sharing the archived, never-before-seen flick to his IG story, Safaree jumped in the comments of The Source‘s post and emphasized how important that moment was to him personally

A vital part of history,” he wrote. He then continued by comparing himself to embattled rapper and producer Kanye West while also making it clear he has zero reservations about that specific era in his life.

“I wouldn’t change anything about my past!!,” Safaree wrote in part. “I’m like Kanye I love everybody.”

During their nearly 15-year relationship, the rapper-turned-reality star allegedly worked on several of the Nicki’s albums including Pink Friday, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, and The Pinkprint.

In 2015, Safaree threatened to sue Nicki Minaj for royalties from the aforementioned projects which he said he was owed based on his contributions.

Despite their sour separation, which in years past Safaree has attributed to Nicki Minaj’s former ex-boyfriend, rapper Meek Mill, he has claimed on multiple occasions that Nicki was one of the best partners he has ever had.

Following an interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club in January of 2015, Safaree killed rumors that he was Nicki Minaj’s ghostwriter during their relationship and also expressed how grateful he was to have met her in a lengthy Twitter rant.

wanna say 1 thing cuz ppl like to take bs and run with it..,” Samuels wrote on Twitter at the time. “If there was anything in my interview that came off the wrong way towards nicki i apologize and want ppl to kno that she was the best thing that ever happened to me and is a great person inside and out and the most talented person i kno.. and i never said i wrote her raps.”
