‘You Have a Baby on the Way’: Safaree Samuels’ Fans Concerned After His Latest Wild Antic

It seems that Safaree Samuels has a lot of people wondering how focused he is on his new baby coming, because of something he did to promote his music.

Samuels and his wife Erica Mena are expecting a baby girl any day now, and on Thursday Samuels, who’s also a rapper, posted a video of himself standing next to a huge billboard in the sky. The billboard was put up in Brooklyn, New York, to market his new album that’s dropping on Jan. 24, and the 38-year-old expressed how proud he is of it.

“Respect the grind that’s all! Flatbush Junction in Brooklyn,” wrote Samuels next to the video. “I was raised here. So this one feels different. I could write a long speech but if you know you know…. BROOKLYN.. Jan 24th I’m independent so imma do what I gotta do‼️🔥”

But in a separate post that shows Samuels standing in front of two billboards, he did write a lengthy message and detailed how the billboards represent a full-circle moment for him. 

“Lemme tell you a story, Flatbush junction,” the New York native began. I went to Midwood HS I worked here at the Flatbush YMCA I worked at McDonald’s here I took the B41 to go everywhere, I took the 2 train to go to work I use to Drive dollla van here I use to go to get set and metro sports to get fly I use to play ball in vandeveer bag girls and all that.” 

“And today someone asked me ‘Safaree how does it feel’ & ‘forget the haters we love you’ and I don’t think it hit me until she said that and I just wanna tell y’all if you have a dream.. Chase it! I’m still on the grind! You gotta respect the grind! I’m independent and I got 2 of the biggest billboards in my hometown!”

In the comments below, many blasted Samuels and said he shouldn’t be standing a bunch of feet up in the air. Mainly because it’s unsafe and irresponsible, considering he has a baby coming. Others didn’t like how Nicki Minaj’s ex made such a big display of having his own billboards.  

“Get off that ledge fool! You have a baby on the way! Smh,” one person wrote.

“Stop being stupid u have a child on the way that’s dangerous,” wrote another.

“Oh my God you’re getting worse and worser what it is baby fever😁,” another person stated.

Plus, a fourth person wrote, “This man is the perfect amount of extra lol.”
