So aside from “Burner” what else can we expect from your EP?
There’s definitely going to be some personal stuff on there. That’s another thing, too. People are going to really be able to hear where I’m coming from. It’s not just going to be your typical rapper, I’m going to have a couple of things in there that’s going to be personal.
When people hear [my next song], they’re going to be blown away. It’s a really dope song. It’s called “Bruce Wayne.”
What is it about?
It’s about a guy who’s talking to a girl; he’s just telling the girl how he wants to make her feel good, but it’s in a sarcastic, funny way. Also just letting a girl know, “Hey, I like you but don’t get it twisted.” It’s a fun record. It’ll make sense for the spring time.
Can you tell me a little bit about your new music?
I’m Jamaican, so there’s some things in there of the Jamaican culture. There’s a big Jamaican influence. I’m from Brooklyn, I’m from New York, so they’ll be feel good N.Y. music. There’s going to be down South music.
I’m not your typical New York artist. I’m not out here trying to act like I’m a thug who’s going to shoot you and kill you. Because people that are shooting are not free doing music, they’re in jail. I’m not even trying to portray that.
Do you want to touch on Nicki at all?
They’ll hear it in the music coming up.
I get the vibe that you’re trying to distance yourself from the Nicki stuff and focus on the music.
I’m just working on myself. You work on yourself everyday, right?
Are you and Nicki on good terms?
We’re on great terms.
Anything else you want to add?
Health, wealth and positivity. You get what you put out.
Safaree also recently snagged a campaign with Karl Kani clothing and is gearing up to have the video for his single “Burner” debut on MTV Jams. Welp. Can’t blame dude for wanting to get on with his life, riiigggght? You can check out the full interview with XXL Magazine HERE.
Meanwhile, Nicki and Meek have already been spotted grabbing some grub together out in L.A. for Grammy weekend. Details & pics on the flip….
2015 Grammy-nominated rapstress Nicki Minaj is still riding high off of the success of her latest album “The Pink Print,” and despite her very public break up with long-time boyfriend Safaree hitting the news cycle in the midst of the new music, it seems the show must….and will…..indeed go on.
Nicki and MMG rapper Meek Mill have continued to fuel rumors of a brewing romance between the two of them with photos like these…..
….and they added even more fuel the fire last night when they were spotted heading to dinner together at BOA Steakhouse in L.A. for Grammy Weekend.
Hmmmmm. Meek is currently promoting the upcoming release of his new album “Dreams Worth More Than Money” and Nicki has also dropped hints that one of their two collabos on her album will be the next single, so it’s still hard to tell whether this is “the real thing” ….or just a way to gain publicity for their projects.
Do you think Nicki and Meek will pop up on the Grammy red carpet together?
