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…
After documents surfaced recently that Cedric “Alfamega” Zellars had once been a paid informant, T.I. wasted no time in hitting the airwaves of Atlanta radio station 107.9 to release the following statement…“You’re FIRED!” 😆 Just kidding. Here’s what he really had to say:
I am stunned and totally surprised by the news about Alfa ?Ced? Zellers. 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 can not support or condone blaming others for our own mistakes. I hope and pray that God blesses Cedric’s plans, but i don?t foresee me or my company playing a role in his personal or professional business.
Alfa is said to be incapacitated at an Atlanta area hospital and is severely injured from unknown reasons. I have so many questions right now. Who leaked those old “A”zz documents? Why now? Why is Alfa in the hospital? What does any of this have to do with him making music? We may never know the full story but it’s interesting nonetheless…
The KING, T.I.P. and his Grand Hustle Crew, which includes Young Dro, Bobby Ray (aka B.o.B.), Young LA, Big Kuntry, Killer Mike, Alfamega, Lil Duval and 8Ball & MJG all got together to participate in a photoshoot for The Source Magazine. The best part of this video for me was seeing Lil Duval walkin round with his laptop checkin his MySpace and Twittering (Twitter.com/LilDuval). When clowned about it, Duval responded that all of the crew were computer literate but none of em would admit it. 😆 All these dudes look like they ginuinely love and respect each other which hopefully will translate into some good music for them all.? Grand Hustle HOMIE!
Memphis legends 8Ball and MJG held a private listening party at Grand Hustle studios a few nights ago. From Suave House to Bad Boy and now finally home with Grand Hustle, the duo premiered several hot joints for the invited crowed.? The theme of the session was “Jury Duty” and 8Ball invited all to issue their criticism.? I arrived late (as usual) but caught a few of the songs.? I’ve been a fan for so long, it wouldn’t really have mattered much anyway, but the lil bit I heard I liked and judging from the clip below, I think Tip did too:
