Nicki Minaj's ex-boyfriend is speaking out.

After months of dealing with a public breakup with the female rapper (which even took an ugly turn on Twitter at one point), Safaree Samuels decided to open up about everything that went down with the Barbz leader during an interview with Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club radio show this morning.

And he didn't shy away from any topic—even if he was a little vague about certain things (like who broke up with whom).

"I walked away. I'm not going to say I broke up, but I'm the one who walked away. I packed up my stuff and I left," he said, but did offer some more insight as to what the problem within their relationship was.

"I just got to the point where the respect wasn't there," he continued. "Everyone around her works for her, you know? So it got the point where it was like, I'm your man. I'm who you go to sleep with every night. I'm who you wake up with every morning. And it got to the point where I was being treated like an employee, instead of like her man."

And going back to the Twitter war fiasco, Samuels said, "I would never do anything publicly to try to pull her down. Whatever happens between me and her one on one is what it is, that's personal. I would never put that out there.

"I could be out here telling a million stories and doing cornball s--t, but I'm not gonna do that and I never plan on doing that. I just think it's crazy for her to come out now and try to pull me down and try to say I'm corny. I don't care who you with, who you with don't mean nothing to me. I want you to move on, because I'm moving on. I walked away from the situation."

So, is Nicki moving on? The female rapper was in the middle of dating rumors after being spotted out and about on numerous occasions with Meek Mill, and although she's denied that there's anything going on, Samuels gives them his blessing.

"If that's who she decides to move on with, it is what it is. I'm not mad, I'm not bitter because if I wanted to make it work, I could've made it work… He don't owe me nothing. He's not the childhood friend I grew up with."

Safaree also talked about Nicki's raps, explaining that she didn't do it all on her own.

"Don't say, ‘Oh, 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 was me and her. Don't discredit me on what I've done for you, that's weak. I would never do that for her. All I'm saying is this is something me and her did together. That doesn't take away from what she's done. She's at the top of her league."
