T.I. Ousts Alfamega From Grand Hustle After DEA Informant Records Leak
After news got out and around to rapper and Grand Hustle’s CEO, T.I., that his artist Alfamega born Cedric Zellars was a former government informant, T.I. dismissed him publicly on radio. The news broke on last week after the website Smoking Gun published a report along with legal documents revealing that the rapper was an informant for the Drug Enforcement Administration (D.E.A.) during a trial of a heroin drug dealer.
T.I. went on the Atlanta radio station 107.9 and read a statement which clearly spoke about Alfamega deceiving the company and how Grand Hustle was not not the place for someone like him.
“Even though all 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,” TI is quoted as saying.
The rapper went on to state, “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 have always said, you must take responsibility for your own actions. We at Grand Hustle cannot support or condone the blaming of others for our own mistakes.”
T.I. went on to say that he hopes that the rapper’s financial plans be blessed and he doesn’t see himself nor Grand Hustle taking part with Alfamega’s professional business or dealing with Alfamega personally.
Alfamega was expected to release his album on last year, “I Am Alfamega” under Grand Hustle, then possibly this year, but now that the rapper has been dismissed after being ousted as an informant, could this mean that the rapper may have now seen the “Alpha and Omega” of his career, the beginning and the end?
