But things took a surprising turn in a conversation where MajahRaised a man who took care of his family. Majah stated:

“… Because guess what? We glorify the fact that a nigga can go to jail, spend 10 years in prison, and then come home. We glorify the fact that “Oh he kept it real, he did 10 joints. He’s a real one.” A real one to me is a nigga that stays home, that stays out of jail, that takes care of his kids, that provides for his family. A nigga that is successful. That’s not even a nigga to me, that’s a man.”

“My first day on set, who was with me all day and we were there scouting the scene… This is not a trophy for social media, my kids are with me in real life.”

“You see these baby seats in the back? Like, come on, son.”

His future podcast costar said that he didn’t have to prove anything.

With the faint pleas of MajahFor SafareeTo change the conversation so that it does not become a spectacle SafareeHe decided to keep going, because he seemed to have a lot to share with the audience as he recounted a story about a street encounter he had.

“Yo, I was walking [with]The double stroller and this lady spotted me. She was like “Oh my God, he really do be with his kids” I wanted to say “Yo bitch!.. I wanted my baby to go with me and my baby boy. Like what?” 

His laughter was a result of this humorous statement. MajahWho said it?

“This the type of shit that you be saying that be fucking putting you on The Shaderoom. You can relax, bro. What you mean you wanted to take the baby out and hit her with the baby?”

“No, I wanted to take the baby and just swing his feet. And just like, swing his feet to hit her, like “What are you talking about?”

The conversation was lighthearted and well received by all who saw the life. However, it seems that the 34-year-old is not quite as happy. Erica MenaAfter hearing the news, I was not laughing Safaree’s words. Twitter was used by her to raise concerns Safaree’s notion that he is an active part of his children’s lives with the following statements
