The beef is real and the reaction is priceless.
The drama started when Minaj threw shade at her ex during an interview on Hot 97 radio earlier in the morning. The rapper expressed her frustration that Safaree and other male hip-hop artists don't respect her as a songwriter. She stressed that she's "always written" her own raps and is "over" Safaree trying to "tarnish" her image by taking some kind of credit for her work.
"You don't know the f--ked up shit he did to me," she said. "It don't give you a right to lie about someone's craft just because you know that they're a woman and people will believe you. So now years later you want to come back and say 'I lied' after you've tried to tarnish my image."
"I've gotten over it now because you can go and listen to 'Queen' and hear it for your motherf--king self," Minaj added. "I've always been adamant that I've always written my own raps and I want all women to write their own raps."
Minaj also alluded to catching Safaree stealing her credit cards and paying for prostitutes, all while she was taking care of him "for years and years." The former couple dated for 12 years before breaking up in 2014.
"For one person to do something like this to me out of sheer weakness and passive aggression and just hatefulness and vindictiveness because you got caught shitting on a person who was taking care of you for years and years?" Minaj said. "Because you got caught shitting on a person who was taking care of you while you were paying for prostitutes and stealing their credit cards?"
"How dare you bite the hand that feeds you," she added.
Safaree responded on Twitter by suggesting his ex either "still cares" about him or is "holding on to a lot of hate."
"How many times have I said I never wrote ur raps (sic)? Nobody even talks about that anymore," he added.
Minaj clapped right back in a series of tweets about their relationships, including taking a dig at Safaree's hairline.
U stole my card & told me you thought it was an account with “free money” that I didn’t know about. On God. God will strike you down & more for lying. Ha! Stop saying u packed & left ! On Jesus u came to my house CRYING BEGGING to go w|me to Europe to the EMA’s. I said NO DUMMY— QUEEN (@NICKIMINAJ) August 14, 2018

Safaree came back with multiple tweets as well and made sure to clarify that he and Tyga don't attend the same hairline treatment doctor. In addition, the hip hop star claimed that Nicki once cut him so badly that he "almost died."
We know each other inside out. Everything there was for us. I didn't use your card for prostitutes. We both didn't trust each other. You did shit I did shit. You said you were messing with meek a few years b4 y'all got together and I'm not mad at that.— @IAMSAFAREE (@IAMSAFAREE) August 14, 2018
Towards the end it got toxic and I just packed up and left. I did things for spite and so did you. I don't wish you bad and I don't want us back together just like I'm sure you don't. I don't need you you don't need me but we will always be linked in the public no matter what.— @IAMSAFAREE (@IAMSAFAREE) August 14, 2018
Remember the night you cut me and i almost died the police and ambulance had to take me out the crib on a stretcher and I had to lie and tell them I was trying to kill myself so they wouldn't take you to jail. When things like that start happening more Than once it's time to dip.— @IAMSAFAREE (@IAMSAFAREE) August 14, 2018
And you know what I still don't have no hate for you cuz I'm happy in my own mind now. Enjoy your album dropping. And stop letting these ppl see you sweat. This ain't you. You too big to act the way you be acting. No1 on ur level acts like that. Period— @IAMSAFAREE (@IAMSAFAREE) August 14, 2018
How was I begging to go to Europe with you and you were in a full blown relationship towards the end of ours? I knew it a wrap. I still have the email when you hit me saying let's spend Christmas together and work things out so please stop.— @IAMSAFAREE (@IAMSAFAREE) August 14, 2018

Nicki Minaj is really keeping my TL busy this good Tuesday. Paid $10K for Safaree’s hairline, had to get his private pics of his junk back for him, exposed him for lying on her for years. Whew... pic.twitter.com/Zz3mhdwnuA— Kels Kels (@Kelsie_G18) August 14, 2018
