LOVE & Hip Hop star and ex-boyfriend of Nicki Minaj, Safaree Samuels has had a few bumps in the road carer-wise, but yesterday, the rapper/TV personality took to Instagram to give thanks to a woman who he says is "saving lives."

Samuels shouted out Mona Scott-Young for helping give his career a much-needed boost in what he called one of the "darkest times in my life" and even went so far as to say that "this is our Oprah."

Scott-Young is the woman behind the Love & Hip-Hop franchise, and the successful reality show has proven to become the catalyst for further opportunity in the industry - just ask Cardi B and Safaree, who is now prepping his own show.
