Safaree Samuels is dropping major news today. Not only is the rapper dishing on how to date a strong willed woman, but Nick Minaj’s ex-boyfriend confirmed he is in the process of writing a book.
“Fyi i might as well tell yall now but i am writing a book and have been the past month. Thank you Ms.pie,” Samuels wrote on Instagram while promoting his new interview with Ebony.
In the article, titled, Safaree Samuels on How to Date a Strong-Willed Woman, the rapper says it comes down to being supportive and in so many words, submissive. “For me, support comes naturally. So if I have a ‘connect’ or can make a phone call to help someone out, I will in a heartbeat,” said Samuels, who dated Nicki Minaj for nearly 12 years before splitting with the female MC last year. “The same gesture applies to whoever I’m dating. Growing up, I wanted to be an MC. But I put my dreams aside to play the role of the supportive boyfriend.”
He continued, “To be a submissive man, you have to have a submissive bone in your body,” Samuels explained. “The relationship isn’t going to work out for the man who has a short fuse or can’t handle being told what to do. A lot of men look for women they can mold into what will fit into their lives, but you can’t do that with a strong-minded woman. If you’re going to be with her, you have to be okay with her running the show at times.”
And speaking of running the show, now that Safaree and Nicki are no longer together, it looks like the show is in Samuels’ hands.
Earlier this, reports surfaced that the rapper filed a lawsuit against Minaj for a cut of her albums, The Pinkprint, Pink Friday, and Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. Apparently, he also wants some coins for her singles including, “Only” featuring Chris Brown, Drake, and Lil Wayne, “Flawless (Remix)” with Beyoncé and “Feeling Myself.”
It is worth noting that the female emcee did give some credit to Samuels, who is also rumored to have ghost written for his ex. Nicki gave Safaree executive producer credit on her first two LP’s, Pink Friday and Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.
Netflix’s ‘Step Sisters’ Is ‘Bring It On’ … But Way More Woke!
Netflix is getting ready to “Bring It On” … in more ways than one. The streaming service’s new flick Step Sisters is reminiscent of the 90s dance film, but delves deeper into racial themes like cultural appropriation, tokenization and interracial dating.
In the film Megalyn Echikunwoke (Arrow) plays the president of a black sorority who is tasked with teaching one of the campus’ white sororities how to step for a charity competition. At first glimpse the film seems to be stepping into a can of worms — and had folks on Twitter up in arms, but the creators and cast told HipHollywood it isn’t about cultural appropriation but instead cultural exchange.
“There’s a strong political message, and there’s a lot of racial content,” said Nia Jervier. “But I think that the pill that may be difficult to swallow is dipped in honey, because it’s funny.”
What also helps is that producer/writers like Lena Waithe (Masters of None), Chuck Hayward (Dear White People) and Ben Cory Jones (Underground) are behind the project – so you know it’s woke.
“At the end of the day, Jamila the lead character in our minds she’s reaching over to show them a part of our culture. It doesn’t dilute our culture,” said Jones. ” And I love that we can take stepping and evolve that into issues of race and culture.”
Step Sisters begins streaming on Netflix January 20th.
