He stopped by The Breakfast Club this week to offer his side to their break-up, which has been in the headlines over the past several weeks. SB says he never planned on doing any interviews regarding their split, but had a change of heart, after Nicki publicly bad mouthed him.
“I would never do anything publicly to try to pull her down. Whatever happens between me and her, one on one, that’s personal,” he explained. “I would never put that out there. I could be out here telling a million stories and doing cornball sh*t like that. I’m not gonna do that. I would never do that. I think it’s crazy for her to come out now and try to be pulling me down, trying to say I’m corny. I don’t care who you with. That don’t mean nothing to me. I want you to move on, ’cause I’m moving on. I walked away from the situation.
“I walked away. I’m not gonna say I broke up, but I walked away. I packed my stuff and I left.”
According to SB, he and Nicki were a team, making all career decisions together… until she began treating him like an employee, rather than her boyfriend, putting a strain on the relationship, which ultimately ended.
“It just got to the point where the respect was gone,” he explained. “I don’t wanna get to deep into all that, but everyone around her, works for her. So, it got the point where… I’m your man. I’m who you go to sleep with every night. I’m who you wake up with every morning. It got to the point where I was being treated like an employee, instead of her man.”
Later, SB said that despite how successful he and Nicki became, the money and fame couldn’t buy happiness.
“Fame and money, you can’t put a price on piece of mind. People on the outside looking in be like, ‘You out your mind, you better get your girl back,’ ” he said, before clarifying that Nicki’s career was a team effort between the both of them.
“When you try to pull me down and discredit what I’ve done for you, like, that’s what’s weak to me,” SB said. “Don’t say that I don’t have no talent. Because every time it came to writing raps and doing music, it was me, her and a beat. She doesn’t do it by herself. It’s me and her. Don’t discredit me on what I’ve done for you. That’s weak. I would never do that to her.
“Of course,” he replaied when asked if he wrote Nicki’s songs. “Everybody gets help. There’s nothing wrong with getting help… All I’m saying is this is something me and her did together. That don’t take away from what she’s done. She’s still, like, the top of her league. Ain’t nobody better than her.”
