An aspiring rapper called into The Breakfast Club to accuse washed up rapper Safaree Samuels of scamming him out of $1,000 for a feature on a mixtape.
The Breakfast Club radio co-hosts were discussing reports that comedian Kevin Hart was defrauded out of $1.2 million by a former employee.
They opened the phone lines to the public, and one man called in to say he was scammed by Nicki Minaj's ex.
The man said the scammer was Safaree (and not an imposter) because he DM'd the aspiring producer's blue check (verified) Instagram account.
"This how he got me. He hit me up first actually on Instagram," the aspiring rapper explained.
"He was like, 'Yo, your track is hot.' He told me that he could do a little promo for me, throw my track on Spotify, on the playlist for me and all that for $1,000. So, I paid him, and weeks and months go by. So, I'm hitting him up. He said, 'Oh, I forgot you on this tape so I got you on the next project.' It was supposed to drop in November. So, after November, he completely stopped responding and he basically got me out of $1,000, so I just have to take my L."
Safaree, like other broke artists who were hard hit by the pandemic, created an OnlyFans account to make ends meet.
Safaree did not respond to a blogger's message for a comment on the allegations.

Music critics have spoken, and they say Drake's latest musical offering, Dark Lane Demo Tapes, is the worst of his career.
To be fair, Drake probably produced and mixed all the songs himself while on quarantine at his mansion in Toronto.
The Pop Hob tweeted:
"Drake's newest mixtape 'Dark Lane Demo Tapes' debuted with a score of 56 on metacritic, making it the rappers worst project to date & earning its spot as the worst album released this year beating out Justin Bieber’s changes."
Rolling Stone magazine gave Drake's mixtape a 60 metascore: "The project, a grab bag of new songs, leaks, and material previously teased on Instagram Live, is often bittersweet and deeply contemplative, even by Drake's standards."
One metascore critic wrote: "For me, this album was a very easy way for Drake to drop something. Most of these songs aren't well executed and this album will probably flop..."
Another critic wrote: "Dull, boring, horrible, always the same, completely been done before, terrified to reference or not reference."
Drake enjoyed unprecedented success as a hip-hop artist after the release of his first album Thank Me Later in 2010, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard chart.
His follow-up albums Take Care (2011) and Nothing Was the Same (2013) sold millions of copies, as did his first commercial mixtape If You're Reading This It's Too Late (2015).
Listen to the mixtape below.
Rappers T-Pain and Li'l Wayne finally released their long anticipated joint mixtape, titled simply T-Wayne.
