Nicki Minaj responds to ex Safaree Samuels’ single “Love the Most.” On Wednesday, Samuels released a single in which he rapped about the demise of their 12-year relationship. “You ain’t do it all alone / We took ourselves up out the hood,” said Samuels in the song. “Yeah, we made it on the rise / Ain’t no green in my eyes / ‘Cause we both went to sleep in the same bed of lies.”

After a snippet of the track leaked online, Samuels rushed to release it on iTunes.

And while the former couple had us fooled about their head-over-heels status, Samuels claims his ex-lover was ashamed of their relationship. “What a shame / It took a split for them to know I was your man / Got so tired of hidin’ it / Head high with no pride in it / Guess I wasn’t cool enough cause in our pictures we hidin’ it,” he rapped. Later, he added, “Twelve years up in flames / Thought you woulda had my kid / Year 3 got engaged / Now we movin’ out of rage.”

Another bar called attention to Minaj’s kiss with Nas in her “Ride by My Side” music video. “I had to watch you kiss Nas and pretend it’s all cool,” he rapped. “Inside I was feeling like a motherf–kin’ fool.”

But he didn’t stop throwing Minaj under the bus there… In the third and final verse, Samuels rapped, “I ain’t playin’ tit for tat / I don’t wanna pull you down / I’m not into circus acts and I don’t even like clowns / I ain’t even gonna front like I never watch your show / And I’m still your biggest fan / And I don’t need a front row / Yeah, I know I’m not perfect / You was payin’ all the bills / You remember what you told me when you wasn’t on the pill? / If the shoe was on the other foot / I’d make sure you’re straight / I ain’t playin’ kiddy games / And I ain’t fallin’ for the bait / Tell your mama, tell your brothers, I still love them like my own / I don’t bother reachin’ out because it’s too close to home / But now we’re not together / I don’t feel you wish the best / Can’t believe we not friends / SMH, what a mess.”

He also slammed Minaj’s romance with musician Meek Mill. “That’s between me and you, it was always me and you / We ain’t do this off opinions / It was only me and you / Then you let somebody new come and whisper in your ear / Didn’t think he woulda told you that was my biggest fear,” Samuels rapped.

Hours following Samuels’ song release, the “Bed of Lies” rapper responded to her scorned ex boyfriend via Twitter. Hit the flip for her response below.
