Nicki Minaj just dropped her long-awaited album Queen. On the album, Minaj name-checks a (very) long hit-list of fellow rappers on her radar. She takes aim at her ex-boyfriend, Meek Mill, saying “he still be in my [Instagram] DMs” and Young Thug, who’s “stealing dresses” from her backstage quarters.
Yesterday, Nicki further proved her ruthlessness in a blowout Twitter battle between herself and her ex Safaree. There were a number of blows dealt from both sides. Nicki attacked Safaree for stealing money from her, among other things. Safaree said a lot, but his biggest accusation was that Nicki cut him with a knife.
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.

“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,” Safaree tweeted on Tuesday. “When things like that start happening more Than once it’s time to dip.”
People couldn’t believe the “Chun Li” singer would do something that crazy, but today, a TMZ staffer named Van Lathan said that he saw footage of the incident.
“We’ve actually seen the video here at TMZ, back in 2014, that shows Nicki chasing Safaree with a knife,” Lathan told Power 106.
“Don’t know what happened after that. Couples get into it, sometimes things get heated. There’s no reason why you should be chasing someone with a knife, but we don’t know if Nicki actually stabbed him with a knife.”

We’re not sure if TMZ has plans of releasing the video, but Nicki would unlikely face legal charges at this point.
“It doesn’t seem that [Safaree’s] going to want to press charges,” Lathan said. “If he wanted to press charges, he would have pressed them then.”
