Thursday, Apr 1, 2010 5:50PM
Former Grand Hustle associate Alfamega claims that industry politics led to him being kicked out of T.I.'s camp last year.
Alfa also said if Tip does not serve up an apology he would take matters into his own hands.
"Nah, it wasn't [T.I.]. Man, listen man, it wasn't Tip like I was told, man," Alfa argued claiming Tip was not the one who wanted him gone. "And I got like - I got tapes, homie. I was told that it was somebody bigger than Tip that told Tip to do it [and kick me out of Grand Hustle]. And instead of making a real n*gga move, he made a industry move. It made a lot of n*ggas around him fall-out with him too when he did what he did. I talk to a couple of dudes over there. This situation [can] always be resolved. I'm a grown man. He's supposed to be a grown man too. [So] the situation [can] always be resolved. The United States work out their differences with different countries. [But] they gotta do it before it goes to war. So it can be resolved. I don't want nothing but a apology. Give me a apology [and] I'm through, I'm gone. I'll let it be, if you give me a apology. If I don't get no apology [though], that means I'm coming at ya." (Hip Hop DX)
Tip announced Alfa's Grand Hustle departure 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)
Mega later made a video explaining how he lied, not snitched, on a former drug dealer.
"I ain't never snitched on nobody," Alfa promised. "A lot of people read, but they don't understand. They hear but they don't listen...Dude never had a heroin case, he had a cocaine case. So I know whoever sent that document out, somebody typed it up from something and put something together but I'm gonna give y'all the real deal of how it was. I didn't know Ali, don't know Ali to this day...Somebody put the pressure on me and it wasn't the government or nobody like that. They wanted me to basically lie on this dude, it was up to me to either play the hand I was dealt or fold. If I play the hand I was dealt, I'm looking at 30 to 40 [years in prison]. If I fold, that means I'm still in the game. So I went ahead and folded. From the time I did it, I was remorseful about it. It hurt me because I ain't snitched on dude, I lied on this dude....I was loyal to somebody that made me lie on somebody." (YouTube)
The rapper also tried to reach out to Tip by releasing an open two-page letter.
"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 hommie; 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)
