Alfamega has addressed the claims that his song, "Round One," is a direct diss towards T.I., his former label boss.
According to Alfa, the rapper said he made the record when he was still an active member of Tip's label.
"The song was recorded when I was with Grand Hustle," Alfa explained in an interview. "My mixtape was already recorded before. I been hitting people on my Twitter this morning saying only fake people feed into fake beef...I'm on a different thinking level. I'm not into rap beef. Beef gets more attention than the positive stuff. I don't wanna be put into that category of beefing with Tip, especially when he's down. I felt bad when he did what he did with me when I was in hospital chained to the hospital bed...It's just showing a different side of being lyrical. It's really like the game Fight Night...Every song has a different round. I'm not dissing nobody, man." (MTV)
The song features Alfa making a reference to the beefing former partners Jay-Z and Damon Dash.
"Get your money up, let it pile up," Alfa raps. "Every other song, I'ma switch the style up...Drop your a** like Jay did Dame Dash's/Let me cool down before I blow a head gasket/Slappin' this b*tch, put a n*gga in casket/One phone cool do a n*gga something tragic/Make your wife a widow and your son a little bastard." ("Round One")
Tip severed ties with Alfa last May when documents leaked online which suggested Alfa previously was an informant for the DEA.
"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)
Alfa also inked a two-page open letter to Tip, who is currently incarcerated.
"On the real, I'm not coming to you as a disgruntled crying a**ed b*tch who's mad about being let go," Alfa wrote. "I'm coming to you as a man who is disappointed that he was publicly exiled by a friend. You've often said that you're a man of your words but homie; you are not being true to your words...I rode for you when there was no one else there to ride for you. 24/7, I was on call for you pimp. On many occasions, I sidelined my family choosing to risk my early demise for you. With a little cheddar, you can easily employ dudes to kill for you all day every day. Conversely, try finding someone who will put their life on the line and die for you...I was the first person you called when you got into that altercation in LA with Shaka's DTP people. Without any questions, I was right there ready to go to war for you...Time after time, I defended your honor because you were my dawg; if they disrespected you, they disrespected me...Once this is published, I'm giving you a week to call me. Should you choose to not call me within that timeframe, I'll know exactly where we stand. At that point, we'll separate...Hope you come home soon pimp, keep your head up and let all the bull go. Don't worry about propaganda, people always gone talk." (Down South)
