A crew of fellas at a Dyckman basketball game in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood weren’t very fond of Brooklyn rapper Safaree when he took the court for halftime.
In video footage circulating on social media, the Love & Hip Hop Hollywood cast member performed his “Hunnid” single with his entourage in tow. But the performance was cut short when a group of men from the bleachers began booing him, prompting Safaree to cut the music and address the disgruntled crowd.
Unfortunately, Safaree’s statement only ignited tension from them, and the boos became more ferocious as they tossed items at him from the bleachers.
For starters, Charlamagne began by explaining that Safaree’s song isn’t too shabby of a song, but it didn’t quite stick with the masses. He thinks that before 2018 is up, Safaree will get a hit, but “Hunnid” just isn’t it.
It’s not the booing that influenced Charlamagne’s choice to hand Donkey of the Day to Safaree either, he clarified, but for his Hollywood ego-charged response. According to him, flexing on an already hostile crowd about how much money you have or how many girls you’ve slept with only fueled the fire, and Safaree should have just bust out a dance move or one of his other entertainment knacks once he realized the crowd wasn’t responding well to the rapping.
“You’re already outnumbered, so you can’t win that one, Safaree,” he said. “Not to mention, that’s how you get robbed, or get into a physical altercation, or get shot at, and for what?”
To expand on his point, The Breakfast Club host flashed back to Safaree’s tearful moment on The Angie Martinez Show when he discussed being robbed just moments before arriving to the station. Charlamagne believes that in case something like that ever happens again, people won’t have so much sympathy due to his boasting. “Be humble, or be humbled my brother,” he reminded Safaree.
Afterward, Charlamagne said that both him and DJ Envy attempted to call Safaree a few times, presumably to get his side of the story, but he wasn’t picking up. They decided to ring him one more time, and when he didn’t answer, Charlamagne left an obnoxious message that’s probably certain to incite a call-back from Safaree.
“Booooooooooooo!” he hollered on the voicemail. “Aye this Charlamagne call me back!—Boooooooooooo!”
