Yesterday’s “All Eyes On You” video must have been the last straw for Safaree, who officially took his grievances to the booth with “Lifeline.” Despite cringing with that opening chorus, the song improves as it goes along and Safaree definitely went in on that closing verse. This isn’t going to change the narrative since Nicki and Meek have legions of fans, but I respect Safaree for attempting to defend himself from the heapings of social media slander those two have inflicted on him.
Now the bigger question — buy or sell on the belief that Safaree was a ghostwriter for Nicki? Dude sounds exactly like her on this. Maybe he was doing it for effect, but this raises a few more interesting questions in light of the ongoing Drake fiasco.
Speaking of Drake, he should’ve given that “Charged Up” beat to Safaree.
