Safaree Samuels stopped by the Wendy Williams show to talk about his career, but people only care about what he has to say about his ex, Nicki Minaj.

Samuels, who is now a regular on Love & Hip-Hop Hollywood, has been trying to get out of the shadow of his ex-girlfriend Nicki Minaj by showcasing his own music. However, people are still very interested in the music that he helped make with Minaj that made her famous.

At one point, Samuels did plan on suing Minaj over work he claims he contributed to on her first three albums. While he has since dropped the lawsuit idea, he does still expect to be compensated.

Samuels tells Wendy, “As far as that whole process goes, it was a collaborative effort. She doesn’t sit there and do absolutely nothing but I definitely was a helping force in everything that had to do with creating music.”

Samuel and Minaj never signed any paperwork legally binding them as creative partners. Williams also advised Samuels that since they were never married or had any children, it’s going to be difficult for him to get whatever it is he’s asking for. Williams also rode Samuels for not naming a specific amount of money that he thinks he’s owed.

Later in the interview, Samuels opened up about the role he feels Meek Mill had in their break-up. He admits that he introduced to two rappers to each other with the intention of them making music together. But as we all saw, they would up doing much more than that.
