Safaree shows Mona Scott-Young some love.
Safaree Samuels has had his share of up's and down's over the course of his career, but yesterday, the rapper/TV personality took to Instagram to give thanks to a woman who he says is "saving lives."
Samuels singled out Mona Scott-Young for helping give his career a much-needed boost in what he called one of the "darkest times in my life" and even went so far as to say that "this is our Oprah." Scott-Young is the person responsible for casting Samuels on Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood, the successful reality show that has since become the catalyst for further opportunity in the industry for Safaree, who is now prepping his own show.
Check out Samuels' Instagram post below.
When I had the world against me without even knowing who I was you were the only person who gave me a fair shot.. didn't judge didn't assume didn't care who I was with or not. Had to be 1 of the darkest times in my life.. imagine helping build an empire walking away from it with nothing and having everyone shun you just because you're not the bigger star. IDGAF what any1 has to say @monascottyoung you are out here saving lives and entertaining millions across the world.. how could you hate on a black woman for doing that!! This is our oprah wether you wanna admit it or not!!! Take it how you want.. it's facts!!! *sidenote* I'm booked and busy.. love you!! #stuntgang
