Alfamega has addressed recent rumors which claim his recently released "I Apologize" song was directed towards Grand Hustle leader T.I.
Speaking via a rep, Alfa addressed the newly released record.
"[It] had nothing to do with T.I. in no way, shape or fashion," the rep said. "'I Apologize' [was recorded] earlier this year before any of the current situations came about. Alfa is out [of jail]. He is still recovering from his injuries and working to the best of his abilities right now." (Miss Info)
The song landed online over the weekend and showed Alfa speaking on past mistakes.
"I beg every mother to forgive my sins," he raps. "Not once, not twice, but over and over again/I come to you humbly to make amends/'Cause I have destroyed, the sons and mens/My selfish ways has blackened their heart/Turned 'em into monsters, lurk in the dark...I destroyed so much, please forgive me lord/And listen your honor, it's not his fault/You can't blame him for that body he caught/He was just reacting to what I taught/So give me his life sentence, and let him walk." ("I Apolgoize")
He also released a statement which addressed the song's seriousness.
"This song, is an apology to anyone from age 8 to 80, that's affiliated with or in any gang," he wrote. "To every parent (mother or father) that has lost a child to gang violence, every sister, brother, aunt, uncle, cousin, partner or whomever that has lost a loved one or a friend to gang violence either by death or prison. Even if I never met you or have known you personally, I want to apologize for being the root of the evil that is plaguing the youth of today, & I beg you for forgiveness the same way i would beg GOD to forgive me for every sin that i have committed, because i am 37 years old now, & i have finally become to realize by watching my own children that i wasn't teaching something positive i was only teaching negatively."

Tip announced Alfa's departure from Grand Hustle last May.
"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." (File Factory)
