As most of you know, Grand Hustle artist Alfamega didn't make the trip to Miami for T.I's going away festivities because he was terminated by the diminutive rap boss for lying on his job application.
Here's what was told to me by an inside source: It seems that Alfamega got pinched by the feds back in the 90s for pushing weight in Florida (for real, unlike Rick Ross who lied about being a coke dealer). Alfa ended up doing way less time than he ought to have done because (allegedly) he started singing like a caged bird.
The song he was singing must have sounded like music to the feds' ears, especially when he started crowing about the celebrities he was dealing coke to. Next thing you know, Alfamega is a free man, but still living large on his federally funded lifestyle (allegedly).
In short order, Alfamega started kicking it with rap crews again. Recording rap demos and partying hard with individuals who apparently were too dumb to notice anything odd about him, such as where he was getting his ends from. And why his associates were getting busted around him while he remained unscathed.
So fast forward to the early 2000s, and Alfamega sets up shop in Atlanta where he hooks up with Atlanta rap crews, including T.I. at Grand Hustle. I don't know why "Block" of Block Entertainment's name keeps coming up in all of this. But they say that Block did time with the same bodyguard who is responsible for T.I.'s gun troubles. That bodyguard was supposedly referred to T.I.'s camp by Block.
In light of all this recent drama, people are now saying Block is a federal snitch. But I don't believe that for one minute though. Peep what Block's disgruntled artist Yung Joc -- who is suing Block for past due royalties -- had to say about him in an interview with AllHipHop.com yesterday:
A lot of people don’t like to do business with him. Block don’t even go out in Atlanta; a lot of people don’t even know his face. And when you’re trying to do business, you can’t be a boss if people don’t f**k with you.
Now they say once a federal snitch, always a federal snitch. Soon after Alfa's arrival in Atlanta, certain rappers and industry execs started getting busted by the feds left and right, and no one was the wiser. Especially T.I., who seems to be a very trusting sort. Bless his heart.
Anyway, now that Alfamega's cover is blown, AHH's purveyor of gossip, Ill Seed theorizes that the feds had to ghost Alfa out of town expeditiously. So Ill Seed claims the feds concocted a scheme to bust Alfamega publicly so he could go deep under cover into the witness protection program. Ill Seed's theory sounds reasonable to me. That's exactly how they do it in the movies.
