"I am stunned and totally surprised by the news about Alpha 'Ced' Zellers," T.I. said. "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."
According to documents found by website The Smoking Gun, Alfa gave the government information regarding a known drug dealer in 1995, in exchange for a shortened prison term after being sentenced to 110 months after selling weapons to an undercover agent.
This shocking disclosure brings much into question for Grand Hustle, whose members have had many well publicized legal problems of their own, from T.I.'s similar weapons conviction to DJ Drama's mixtape bust in 2007.
"We at Grand Hustle cannot support or condone blaming others for our own mistakes. I hope that he prays to God bless his plans, but I don't for see me or my company playing a role in his personal or professional business," T.I. concluded on the radio.
No word as to the status of Alfamega's frequently delayed Grand Hustle debut 'I Am Alfamega,' though the rapper is said to be recovering in an Atlanta hospital, following an altercation with police.
