Greg Street, a local radio DJ for a popular Atlanta urban station staged an inflammatory publicity stunt involving violence against a prominent local businessman on the popular social networking/micro blogging site Twitter.com.

Street, who has fallen behind in the ratings to Hot 107.9’s Durrty Boyz Show, took to Twitter yesterday afternoon to announce that events promoter Alex Gidewon, of AG Entertainment, was bitch slapped by T.I.’s manager, Clay Evans, during a dispute at the Velvet Room nightclub where T.I. held his official after party for his farewell concert on Sunday night.

Street wrote:

@djgregstreet 6 o’clock News Reports: Clay Evans (TI’s road manager) slapped Alex aka AG Ent last night at Velvet Room.

Not only was the statement untrue and reckless, but Street’s odd stunt involved two local businessmen (Gidewon and Evans) who contribute directly to his employer’s bottom line.

Street’s perplexing behavior comes at a time when most radio stations across the country are reeling from the effects of the recession and making deep cuts to their staff. Street’s stunt was even more puzzling in light of the fact that Gidewon is one of V-103’s most prominent sponsors, contributing more in advertising revenue annually to the station than corporate giants such as Coca Cola.

Gidewon reacted swiftly to Street’s shocking allegation by reaching out to V-103 station management last night and threatening to pull his advertising from the station unless there was an equally public retraction from Greg Street on the air today.

Sources believe that DJ Greg Street fabricated the rumor about Gidewon in retaliation for Gidewon’s refusal to hold a mixtape release party last year at the Velvet Room for Street’s mixtape Sertified Worldwide, which Street released independently after Interscope Records refused to promote the project.

Street was also involved in a very public spat with music mogul Jermaine Dupri that led to Dupri quitting his Saturday night mix show on V-103. Polow Da Don also allegedly dropped Street from his Zone 4 Records label.

Street managed a half assed apology to Gidewon and Evans last night on Twitter, but it might be too little too late:

@djgregstreet: Ok alex, clay said [he] didn’t slap you. He just put his hand [in] yo face 2 let you know what it really could. we show luv.

  • uptopgrl

    Uggg Greg Street SUCKS!!!!! I always wondering how he got his job. He only plays local unknown talent don’t get me wrong I am all for people getting their shine but he plays it the whole 4hrs. Frank Ski, El Duncan and Greg Street are going to be the fall of V-103 if they haven’t fell already.

  • http://myspace.com/dannyblaq dblaq

    @zuley – No he doesn’t have arab money, he has all of the hip hop urban party goers money! that go and went to Velvet, Visions, Compound and every other party he does!

    Alex is from Eritrea (not sure if that is how you spell it) but he is a good example how family gets money together and how they stick with their own people! Oh one more thing Zuley I hope you are Eritrean because they do not marry outside of their race

  • Coo Coo Bananas

    Sigh.. Eritrean isn’t a race. It’s a nationality.

    I see public schools are still failing kids. J/k dblaq lol.

  • wiggy2272003

    Radio in general is wack now. Playing the same ten songs over and over and over. Payola is alive and well don’t care what nobody sez. This post was simply unnecessary cuz radio is sucks and nobody is checkin for GregStreet.

  • http://myspace.com/dannyblaq dblaq

    I hear what you saying but you might as well say race because even though it is a nationalty and used to be a part of Somalia, they are VERY adamant they make the distinction. Almost like calling a Puerto Rican, Mexican!

    So if your ass ain’t from Eritrea, you ass won’t marry Alex! But he’ll still would play on your playground

  • http://myspace.com/dannyblaq dblaq

    Paylo always been alive, it never died and its been around since the Saggy Bottom Boys

  • notnice

    but baby mamas are african american

  • pointhimout

    sandra, i thought you were going to name the ceo of coke or something. alex and ti’s manager. stop it i say. it was on twitter, so not sure how this will affect his radio career, or if it will. everybody has their time. that’s life. i just hate when society throws a person by the wayside when that time is up. nobody will be on top forever. you work the shyt out cha time and transition that success into something greater. greg aint hot any more cuz it’s time for him to move on to something else. moving right along.
