Former Grand Hustle associate Alfamega has responded to T.I.‘s recent explanation for severing ties with him.
Alfa who is rumored to have been a government informant says the truth has not been disclosed to the public yet.
“A lot of my people seen it and I heard it,” Alfa said referring to Tip’s recent DJ Envy interview. “I started laughing — how could you confront the truth? You can’t confront the truth, you can only accept the truth. If you don’t put out a pretty lie — if you ever done something wrong, had an argument with your friend and you wanted to apologize because you knew you were wrong, you want to apologize but don’t know how to do it. You ever have that before? That’s how he feels…I haven’t seen the tape but my people say it looks like it’s edited because it didn’t mention my name but everybody in the interview talking about me, big up to DJ Envy, it ain’t no beef with him, period and it ain’t no beef with Tip, period. My thing is, it’s time to let the truth out. It’s time for the truth to come out, let everybody know what the f*ck’s going on, shawty.” (XTX2XG)
In the video Tip said, he ended his relationship with Alfa to help protect his brand.
“I can’t afford to really be associated with that,” Tip said in an interview with DJ Envy. “That ain’t in ‘my’ best interest. Either way it go, it’s kinda like they only thought about themselves. Never mind how it affects you, never mind how it could fall back on you. ‘It’s all about me.’ So if that’s the take on it, I have no choice but to separate myself just due to what’s best for me and mine.” (DJ Envy)
Last April, Alfa said T.I. was not fully responsible for ending their relationship.
“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 in May 2009.
“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)
