T.I. hit the stage for another farewell concert this weekend but this time it was different. This show was held on Tip’s home turf, Club Crucial on Bankhead Donald Lee Hollowell and had a special surprise guest.
Nope…you eyes aren’t deceiving you! Shawty Lo joined T.I. onstage during his performance of “Big Thangs Poppin” and they both shook hands and finally squashed all the nonesense.
Dem Bankhead Boyz back together again!
Lo even took a moment to apologize to Tip’s boo, Tiny for all of the negative things he’s said about her. Is it me or does Lo strongly resemble Jeezy is this pic? On second look…Nah! I think it’s just my lack of nutrition today.

Grand Hustle’s Alfamega sat down for a little one-on-one with StraightFromTheA.com. The larger than life rapper, dubbed the “muscle” behind T.I.’s P$C clique got up close and personal about the 2008 Dirty Awards fight and it’s aftermath. Alfa discusses why he felt he had to defend himself and also reveals that it wasn’t he who started the fiasco. He talked at length about being maced and pepper sprayed by the police and cleared up any misconceptions about him being arrested that night. Alfa also expressed sincere concerns about the escalating drama between Grand Hustle and D4L and apologizes to Radio One and the fans of Atlanta for his part in the situation:
“Sometimes certain things must happen in order to make a right thing come about. God destroyed the world in order to make it back RIGHT again. It takes sometimes a disaster to make things right…”
Alfamega also took some time to answer a few questions from his fans. I sent out a Twitter Message asking readers what they wanted to know about Alfamega. Although some of y’all were tryna get me killed, I stood strong and asked the tough questions just for you! Check out Alfa’s answers to your questions (on tape) below (hilarious!) 😆 : Continue Reading…
Bankhead Beef has taken another turn this week. After the Dirty Awards fights, Shawty Lo hit up VladTV with an exclusive interview, straight from D4L studios. Lo takes the opportunity to speak about Big Kuntry King’s recent threat to release some taped phone conversations between the two of them. During his talk, he mentions how Kuntry is just all mouth and that he shouldn’t even be talking cause he’s one of the “lames” on the label. Lo spoke almost highly of TIp in the video above, he also recently told MTV news that he don’t know where Tip’s head is….but he ain’t the one to be disrespected:
“[Me and Tip’s conversation] ended on a positive note with the conversation,” Lo said. “I don’t know where he is [with the beef]. I guess he just be talking. One thing about it, Shawty Lo ain’t no punk. T.I. is just a rapper. He knows how to read a book good. Where I live is for real. I ain’t got nothing against homes. He’s got family, I got family. I’m not trying to kill him, he’s not trying to kill me. I got fans that love me. He’s not not gonna run all over me. I ain’t Lil’ Flip.”
Ummm….Ok. So who’s fighting now. Can somebody draw up a diagram or something cause I’m getting confused.
The 2008 Dirty Awards were held in Atlanta last night and the event, although star-studded, was less than spectacular. The show, presented by Radio One’s Hot 107.9, ended up being a Hot “A”ss Mess as police had to break up fighting amongst some of the performers. Prior to the fighting, several Atlanta A-listers like Goodie Mob’s Big Gipp + Khujo Goodie, Monica, Soulja Boy, Gorilla Zoe and more were spotted glammed up for the red carpet:
Monica was rocking the red carpet as usual! You go girl 🙂
The event was marred by a fight that broke out presumably between Shawty Lo’s posse and T.I.’s clique. Shawty Lo performed and I’m told his ad libs took jabbs at T.I. and his crew. Once Yung LA and T.I. took the stage to perform “Ain’t I,” T.I.’s ending message didn’t sit well with some of Shawty Lo’s Bankhead crew in the audience and bottles and fists flew. I’ve heard that Alfamega had to be maced and that Big Kuntry was also subdued by police. More flix + Video footage of the debacle below *Updated with Better Footage*: Continue Reading…
I can’t call it you guys. I thought the battle over Bankhead was over, but it appears it was just simmering. “Don’t I” a new song by some dude I’ve never heard of (Stuntman) featuring Shawty Lo is apparently a T.I. diss track aimed at Yung L.A.’s “Ain’t I“. The first time I heard “Ain’t I” I thought it sounded way too much like Shawty Lo to be a coincidence but who am I? All I know is…this ish could go on forever! If you desire to add this to your Bankhead beats collection, the download link is under the cut (don’t ever say I don’t give you anything!): Continue Reading…
