In a video obtained by tmz.com, she said: "’Till this day I never stopped. See a bitch ass n**** can’t write my raps. You know why? You don’t have the heart or the mindframe or the motherf***ing intellect bitch n****. You don’t even know how to pronounce these motherf***ing words in my motherf***ing rap bitch."

In his track Lifeline, Safaree also dissed Minaj’s new love Meek Mill. The track also hints at Safaree’s sadness that his relationship with Minaj ended after over a decade.
