So two days ago, TI’s protégé, Ced Zellers -better known as Alfamega was reported to be a former informant for the Drug Enforcement Adminstration (DEA) and has reportedly ended all business ties with the rapper. Tip finally broke his silence about Alfa’s situation, and it’s safe to say that he’s really kicking Alfa out of his Grand Hustle label:
“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 dishonest and misleading behavior. As I’ve always said, you must take responsibility for your own actions, we at Grand Hustle do not support or condone blaming others for our own mistakes. I hope and pray to god bless his financial plans but I do not foresee me or my company playing the role of his personal or professional business.”
Court documents were leaked recently that Zellars worked with law enforcement officials after his sentencing in September 1995 to 110 months in a federal gun case. Zellars agreed to cooperate with authorities and was debriefed about the criminal activity of several individuals.
T.I. helped the rapper secure a deal with Capitol Records through his own label, Grand Hustle. Alfamega himself was preparing to release his Grand Hustle debut “I Am Alfamega” sometime this year. Well, guess that’s ain’t happening.
