Breaking News T.I. Speaks On Alfamega Controversy, Boots Rapper From Grand Hustle


As DJ Drama promised, T.I. has just released a statement about Alfamega, essentially disassociating himself and his company from the rapper in light of reports that he was a former informant for the DEA.

“I am stunned and totally surprised about the news about Alfa (Ced Zellers),” he said. “Even though all of our artists and employees are asked by us to be honest and open about their past history, at no time did Alfa disclose to me or Grand Hustle what has now appeared in the media. He essentially deceived us by failing to fully disclose the truth about his past and there is no place in our organization for this kind of misleading behavior. This is our way of saying you must take responsibility for your own actions. We at Grand Hustle can not support or condone blaming others for our own mistakes. I hope and pray to God bless his financial plans but I don’t forsee me or my company playing a role in his personal or professional business.”

The Smoking Gun reported earlier this week that Mega was a government withness and worked with the DEA. According to the site, the artist, who calls himself the Grand Hustle Muscle, copped a deal with the government in order to shorten his 1995 jail bid in on federal gun charges. TSG obtained legal documents showing that the rapper testified against a known heroin dealer and several other criminals to have 18 months subtracted from his 110 month sentence.

T.I., who is expected to turn himself on his own 2007 federal gun charges by May 19, has a history with informants. His former bodyguard, Corey Williams, got caught buying weapons, and the government gave him a deal to turn on Tip. This lead to the King Of The South’s arrest.

    WHHOOOAAAA!!!

    What in the world is going on over at Grand Hustle?

    Since I’m not a street dude, I won’t even speak on it. Ya’ll just keep putting out some music that I can kinda listen to.

    …but damn!!!

    • Must be Two Sides!!!!

      here is my question for T.I…if alfamega would hav been honest, would he have hired him still? That answer would be “NO”!!! But he has a show about change and telling people to do the right thang, and alfamega did the right thing, he got a drug dealer off the street. I dont condone SNITCHING, but in the civilian rules he benefited the community by getting a drug dealer off the street!!! So TI is a hypocrit. He playing both sides. Rappers are gangsta all day behind the mike and fake in the steets…T.I. is just trying to wipe his jacket clean. I think Snitch-Squad-Click is says it all!!!!

    T.I.’s Comment was real smart and logical from a business & street point of view. Grand Hustle.
    So Long Alfa,He Doesn’t have a Career, Back Up Plans,nor History in The Streets unlike Rick Ross, Had History & Logical Reason.

    Ross Did Say He Took The Job as a C.O. as move for the OGs in the hood.

    • Jamal7Mile

      I’m not exactly sure what’s going on over there in ATL streets, but in Detroit (any hood) Alfamega would have serious problems keeping his head in between his shoulders!

      Once again, I’m not in the streets like that, but I have seen HORRIBLE PERMANENT SHIT happen to people for waaaay less.

      Since he already told, he need to think about a witness protection program… or whatever.

      • DV8

        Alfa-Mega isnt from Atlanta he is just signed to a label based there. I believe he is from Mississippi.

    it can be true this is my big homie i never new this shit woooooooooooooooow i hope and pray this shit is no true damn yo yyy

  • fedup

    I seen this coming i think everybody did it a shame and i think this is what is truly destroying hip-hop not down loads its fake ass people, people are tired of being lied to a c.o.
    a snitch fake gangbangers, thugs these are the weak individuals that need to be weeded out if your not strong enough will to be your self mistakes insecuritys and all then i dont think you should be a rapper or at least rap whats real to you like i’m a cop but i would want to sell and be hard, i dont feel bad for mega he made a CHOICE to live that lifestyle and couldnt play ball you gotta be a man first, and word to the wise to all the other rappers your not fooling anybody people arnt as stupid as you think they are

  • Mutada al sader the king

    Damn that nigga ALF must feel terrible right now. He was obviosly getting a monthly check, from grand hustle for probably 3-5 thousand dollars as a monthly stipend untill his album came out. He may have been able to do a few shows, off of the grand hustle name. But now the dude is done. Sad

    • Detroit Draper

      Whats sad is the known heroin dealer who got ratted out…its no tellin how much time he did based on the grand hustle mustle’s testimony. Fuck Alpha’s bitch ass career I hope he gets whats comin to him out there in them Atl streets.

      • Corbin

        ya because heroin dealers are great people in the community and need to be looked out for not put away for destroying lives for profit.

  • http://www.msn.com west philly’s finest

    Damn that’s crazy this nigga on suicide watch but I dont feel sorry for him though. Snitching is letting somebody manipulate you and use you and at the end of the day you still really dont gain nothing. And all of that for a year and a half.

  • GINGABREADMAN

    smh…dro, b.o.b, n l.a. gon hold it down til tip get out

  • acb3000

    off topic but do u believe ross took his c.o job for og’s in the hood ? ross was no where near the hood until he turned 26 plus he lied about not knowing about the real rick ross when he used to be called teflon( c.o. vest) don then suddenly he changed his name to the name of a real nigger who still alive

When you don’t take responsibility for your own actions, sometimes the devil “blesses” you with say.. a record deal. Akin to the movie “Wishmaster”; u may get whut u want now, but in the end, guess whut.. a coward dies a thousand deaths, and Alpha is gonna have to deal with that, for his decision to bring someone else into a bed he made for himself. Man up, my niggaz – I repeat – Kharma’s real, and u will be held accountable for ur actions, wether now or Later, and the shape, form, and fashion it may come in, is the truly terrifying part, triLL taLk – one-hunned – http://www.YouTube.com/4ThaLuvTubehttp://www.Siege777.blogspot.com -

Fuck u and die slow

  • TUNED2IT

    ISH MAKES ME SIC…

  • Tre

    So my question is this, do you still think TI is a snitch? Answer and holla at me personally

    • Detroit Draper

      Yes T.I’s a snitch. He only kicked Alph out because his became public.

      • Greg

        honestly? T.I. said it best and this is proof. T.I. snitched. we’d have known about it because once you do, it becomes public record. if T.I. snitched there would be a record of it. But alfa did obviously snitch because it was nothin for TMZ to find his record. that shit cant keep hidden. and for all naysayers, the government dont have any reservations for keepin t.i. bein a snitch secret. im sure they would throw his ass under the bus jus as fast as they would throw him kail. im jus goin by whats public knowledge.

      • thabighomie

        first of all you don’t no “ISH” about goint to court or trial because if you did you would not that any thing you say would become PUBLIC RECORD so go and look up his agreement you dumb@$$

  • Curtis75Black

    Ya’ll saying “Damn !!” like you didn’t see this coming. They are gonna wash their hands with this situation. They’re not gonna hold him down. He’s on his own. Bound to happen.

    i definitly saw this happening still..the dude is waste product now, so TIP had to drop him..he wont be bringing in any income for TIP to eat off of so the nigga had to be dropped. This makes me think how many other rappers are out there on them snitching movements?

    “This is our way of saying you must take responsibility for your own actions. We at Grand Hustle can not support or condone blaming others for our own mistakes.”

    aka… Grand Hustle doesn’t condone snitching!

    he managed to say all of this without using the word snitch.. that’s smart as hell!

    I never wanna hear from Cedric Zellars the DEA informant again..

    and SMH at you lames talkin about this is sad..

  • RL

    Exactly what in the hell does this have to do with true hip hop?

  • swiff

    After all of those youtube videos he did backing T.i when Shawty Lo was attacking him, nobody spoke on it and tip was grateful for alfamega having his back. Now that he was known to tell on someone, tip has no love for him. if you ask me, this is all based on tryna make t.i look good infront of the streets. They all snitching if you look at the public files. their all open for you to check,

    I ADVISE YA’LL TO LOOK

  • ff1one@yahoo.com

    i agree with Rl what does this have to do with hip hop? its sad because a man lost his job on some bs. Nobody knows the entire story. What ti boy did who is an employee who snitched on him about them guns is snitching, plus its disloyal. If alfa was that dude in the hood at very party snitching randomly on people he did dirt with. Thas a problem. Hip hop and the world needs to reexamine this topic because the man is using it against us.

    • http://www.msn.com west philly’s finest

      This is not even the shit they caught Cam on like if a murderer lived next door.

      If you read the papers he got arrested first then he let the U.S. District Attorney know through his lawyer that he had information about other criminals he knew in Atlanta. So he probably thought it would help giving up a big heroine dealer. But it still didnt help him cause he was still charged with a 110 months and it was only shaved down after he was already locked up anyway.

      And on top of all that this nigga is like Deebo he way bigger than the average man in prison. If I was that big and going to prison anyway i would just shut the fuck up.

  • Curtis75Black

    @RL
    It has nothing to do with the music per se, just the culture Hip Hop has invested in for the past 3 or 4 years with those wack ass videos of emcee’s and their affiliates flashing cash, talking shit, spreading their business all over the web while “trying” to keep the “No Snitching” code up to par !! XXL is no different from any other magazine that has no choice but to talk and report this because they have to keep up with the times and keep the pressure on the other media outlets. Is the music getting lost in the sauce ? Yes but what can you do ? This something that was bound to happen and it’s funny how it’s these “white” companies wrecking shop instead of our own Hip Hop sites doing the damage to the fake emcees that front but the reason why they wont is because there’s money in the fantasy, not the real. Ever wonder why De La Soul, Mc Lyte, Q-Tip,KRS even Cube hasn’t graced the cover of this mag !!

  • tony

    In this dam world you don’t have no friends or real Families. That’s why I hang by myself. 50 precent Black people are weird. Always try to be something they are not. That’s why I stay away from Fuckers. Hang by yourself and get all the Money and Pussy. T.I. fuck his self in the azz on this one. Alf the reason why Drama went to jail. You learn by Experience!

  • FORTY

    FUCK ALFAMEGA!! I hate niggas like that with a passion. You chillin, Hustling and minding your own business then a snake ass nigga like alfamega comes along and gives up your whole operation! And For what!! 1 1/2 years shaved off his 9 year sentence….NOT 10 YEARS, NOT 20 YEARS BUT 1.5 YEARS!!!

    CALL THAT NIGGA “BUBBLES” FROM THE WIRE!!

  • Jriggs

    “T.I.’s Comment was real smart and logical from a business & street point of view.”

    True indeed. But, TI didn’t write that. His publicist wrote that shit.

    • Peanut

      Nah, T.I. called that shit into his people to release for him. They recorded that shit and released a copy of the recording to everyone. Go to http://www.thisis50.com. That’s where I heard it at… Get your facts right, TI is a smart mothafucka, real talk.

  • TxTitan

    I actually fucked wit Alfamega. Another example of how rappers are more actors than anything.

    I understand people most people have done some “non-street” sometimes but snitchin is one of them things that you cant overlook.

  • YeahI’mRight!

    Wait wait wait.. hes dropping dude? I thought snitches stuck together? :shrugs:

  • mob

    Ok let get this right…..people in the mafia are Gangsters and more likely if they ain’t the head leader and they get caught they gone be giving up some names….so why not comment on them to?

  • GI JOE

    Even though dude is an informant. I think Alfa aint gonna let this shit slide peacefully. Unless he gets paid some kind of change for his departure. I think he will do some harm to the ones close to TI.

  • Must be 2 Sides

    Snitch Squad Click!!!! I think TI is a hypocrit…and here is why…he has a show telling kids, do the right thing…stand up for your community…now im not saying the way Alfamega went about it was right, but he actually did a good thing. He got a drug dealer off the street, that was destroying the community…now i dont condone SNITCHING, but if you look at if from my perspective; he did a good job…So if Alfamega would not have been facing jail time at that point, told on the criminals,and he told TI from the beginning he snitched on some guys… would TI would have kept in Grand Hustle? “NO!!!” T-Lie and Snitch Squad Click is trying to play both sides of the field!!! Trying to look good for the streets, and look good for his investors and label heads…he dont care about his community or those kids…its a mixed message!!!!

  • Nate

    Now that’s GANGSTA!

    Good riddance.

    That crew tried for years to convince others how real they were. Only TI seems to be doing what he is supposed to.

    I’ll go back to listening to Bun B, Cham, Luda, Killer Mike, and Outkast for my Southern choices. Never was that big into “Grand Hustle” releases.

    This is a funny ass nigga.
    Some time ago he was with a camerateam walking through the streets of ATL interviewing ppl talking about if T.i. was a snitch or not.
    Too cut a long story short everyone(where he went) vouched for T.i.
    And he said i don’t fuck with snitches only real nigga’s and if T.i. wasn’t real the streets here would tell me.
    Why in the hell would he do that knowing he himself has some shit in his closet regarding snitching?
    Goddamn you can’t be that dumb can you?

  • jbird

    I don’t blame Alpha one bit. Ain’t no fam in these streets. Only keep my mouth shut for my blood and close friends. Anybody else is game for the birds. TI knew from the get go that Alpha snitched back in the day and it’s over now. It didn’t involve TI nor none his peeps so he don’t care. Alpha’s lawyer back in the day is TI’s lawyer now. Tell me how that is?TI got knocked so Alpha told him who the bomb ass lawyer was. But Alpha’s snitching got public and so TI had no choice but to ‘publicly’ seperate himself from Alpha. Not to say Alpha don’t write nothing or do anything now for TI. But how TI get off a mandatory gun charge? Ain’t no money get around the fact of law and the case being so big. Snitching is the way out and TI did it. The judge may say this is a new way he is trying to deal with cases such as these, but he won’t do this again for nobody else, I bet you! TIP snitch, Alpha snitch who gives a fvck? It don’t take nothing off my nor your plate, so why bother? If Ali Baqaar is your guy, then get at Alpha. But otherwise, I don’t give a fuck. Rap is fucked up now anyways. Only B.O.B. will bring it back!!! He raps bout rap, not the trap. If you ballin, go stand on the corner and get out the booth. Get this fake ass gangster persona out this rap game. Ya’ll been fags on that shit since Bling Bling.

  • Ramirez

    didn’t T.I. get out of some jail time a few years ago? didn’t he get released early? i wonder how, didn’t he recently testify in court? and now he is affiliated with and had snitches on his payroll, what does that say about T.I.? just remember that you can’t spell snitch without T.I.

  • Jason
