Safaree Says He Wants To Start A Reggae, Dancehall And Soca Record Label – DancehallMag

Rebel Nation | September 6, 2021


Jamaican American rapper and Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta (LHHATL) star Safaree Samuels announced in a tweet that he will be starting his own label, with focus on Reggae, Dancehall and Soca.

Emphasizing his vision, he wrote “I’m gonna start my own label!! But I only want REGGAE DANCEHALL & SOCA!!!! I don’t know how long it will take to do this but this is what I want to do!!” before closing off the tweet with an array of Caribbean flags.

Resharing his tweet on Instagram, Safaree captioned the post, “Teamwork makes the Dreamwork

The rapper was supported by thousands of fans as well as Dancehall deejay and producer Red Rat who responded, “It’s only right for you to do it bro.”

Safaree, who started his musical career as a member of the group, the Hoodstars, alongside, the then-unknown, Nicki Minaj, Lou$tar and Seven Up, gained traction from his writing credits on several of Nicki Minaj’s songs and his role on the reality tv series, LHHATL.

While dating Minaj, in the early 2000s, Safaree co-wrote the single Did It On’em which appeared on Nicki’s debut album, Pink Friday. He also appeared in Nicki’s music video Stupid Hoe and was credited for the writing of six songs on her second album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.

However, after their 2014 breakup, Safaree attempted to sue Minaj and accused her of not crediting him on her third album, The Pinkprint.

Safaree’s controversial character on LHHATL surrounds his family life with his now-estranged wife, TV personality and actress, Erica Mena. The union which led to two children may be coming to an end, as Mena has officially filed for a divorce from Safaree according to TMZ, in May of this year.

In August, Safaree, who was born in the US to Jamaican parents, also announced that after working with the Jamaica Tourist Board, he’s very much interested in becoming an ambassador for Jamaica.

Celebrating Jamaica’s Independence in 2018, Safaree shared a picture of his Jamaican Passport on Instagram, making it clear that he is a Jamaican citizen.
