Nicki Minaj’s Hypeman Scaff Beezy Drops New Song

Whether he’s Nicki Minaj‘s boyfriend, as rumors suggest, or merely her hypeman, Safaree, aka Scaff Beezy, has evidently found a way to get paid. On his new ‘Count It Up’ single, posted Monday (Jan. 9) on Funkmaster Flex‘s website, the aspiring rhymer gets on the mic and chats extensively about a couple of favorite subjects: cars and jewelry.

The track opens with a beeping noise, and as the music kicks in, Scaff explains the strange sound.

“That was my diamond tester,” he says, referencing a device that, if his bragging his true, must ding constantly when he’s in the room. “It just went off in the booth. Sorry.”

That spoken-word bit might be the song’s best punchline, although he gets in at least one more semi-clever line a few bars later.

“Yeah, I’m in the nice cars and a lot of jewels,” he raps. “I heard you a Pisces — you an April fool.”

The chorus — “All these cars, all these bars, all these stars” — is pretty standard hip-hop fare, and the only moment that’s even remotely shocking comes toward the end of the song, as Beezy makes the violent claim, “I’ll slap the s— out of you, tie you up and then f— your cousin.”

He quickly explains that he’s “just playing,” but in light of his alleged physical altercation with Minaj in July, when police responded to a 911 call at a Dallas hotel, the line leaves a bad taste. Dude’s diamond tester may be fully operational, but his tactfulness meter is out of batteries.
