Check out the newest video from the Grand Hustle camp, Young Dro’s “Take Off” featuring Yung L.A. The song’s title has taken on a different meaning in light of all that whole Alfamega/snitch controversy. Lately these A-Town streets have been buzzing about the whole situation. Word on the street is Alfa may have TAKEN OFF…right into the witness protection program:
Now they say once a federal snitch, always a federal snitch. Soon after Alfa’s arrival in Atlanta, certain rappers and industry execs started getting busted by the feds left and right, and no one was the wiser. Especially T.I., who seems to be a very trusting sort. Bless his heart.
Anyway, now that Alfamega’s cover is blown, AHH’s purveyor of gossip, Ill Seed theorizes that the feds had to ghost Alfa out of town expeditiously. So Ill Seed claims the feds concocted a scheme to bust Alfamega publicly so he could go deep under cover into the witness protection program.
I was just having the same conversation the other day. Having grown up here I’ve managed to experience quite a bit. Over the past few years, Atlanta has grown full of “transplants,” a ton of whom tend to make up their history. It’s amazing how people will just “appear” in your circle from God knows where. Not saying that I’ve ever *cough* kicked it with gangsters…but er ummm. Let’s just say them Feds are some sneaky momo’s…
Check out this fresh leak from DJ Drama’s upcoming Gangster Grillz: The Album Vol. 2 entitled “A-Town”. Tip raps about bankhead, MLK & Adamsville while Dro and Sean Paul cover the southside and college park. Dontcha just love all these Atlanta anthems? Just in time for summer…
After being outed as having once worked as an informant for the feds and being dropped from Grand Hustle for not disclosing that information…everyone in the hip-hop world was wondering where he was and why was he so quiet. Some speculated that he was in a witness protection program somewhere, but actually Cedric “Alfamega” Zellars was sitting in a hospital in custody of the Atlanta Police Department after suffering injuries during an arrest: Continue Reading…
Philip’s arena was jumping Saturday night as the Hawks met the Caveliers yet again. Keyshia Cole sang the national anthem while her bff Monica chilled on the sidelines. T.I., Nelly, Jermaine Dupri, Polow Da Don and Keyshia’s ex and my next boo JEEEEEEEZY also took part in the festivities. Unfortunately, the Cavs pounded that “A”zzz but at least A-town supported to the fullest!
Keyshia takes to the court…

Yet again, I’ve creeped over to my friend’s site and snatched up one of her good O.S.A.Ms (Old School Atlanta Memories). This week it’s the Youngbloodz. Remember them? You never really miss something until it’s gone and I realize I really miss these two together. The duo behind today’s “A” Pod classic jams “Damn” and “U-Way” have gone their separate ways, but are still quite active in the industry. And in honor of Flashback Friday, take a moment to reflect with my friend as she shares what she learned while working on the set with Youngbloodz and the attic crew:
It may not be headlines like when Jay Z split with Irv or Snoop with Dre but one of my favorite groups in Atlanta has always been the Youngbloodz and to know that they are not a duo anymore puts me in a melancholy state of mind. Now the fan in me is MAD AS HELL, I love their swag as a rap group, I knew they were having their difficulties but damn if Dre and Big Boi can do it then why not the Youngbloodz. The picture taken above was from one of their last videos Chop Chop, I was the assistant director and it was a long cold day but somehow, I just didn’t mind because I love these guys.
Finally one day I decieded to stop being selfish for one minute and was able to realize the SECRET TO THIS ENTRY, ITS VERY SIMPLE – FOR EVERYTHING THERE IS A SEASON.
Now I’m gonna take you back to a night I can recall at Club 112 a few years back; it was an album release party for Ludacris, and all of Atlanta’s royalty came out to support. The VIP was an Atlien who’s who list. I was sitting down near Michael Vick and my friends were asking me if was I going to follow them back to his house.
