T.I. addressed the exposure of Grand Hustle artist Alfamega's past as an informant for the Drug Enforcement Agency [click to read] via statement yesterday.

T.I., who is the CEO of Grand Hustle, released a recorded statement [click to listen], saying the following:

"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."

As previously reported, The Smoking Gun revealed documents indicating that Alfamega, real name Ced Zellers, obtained a plea deal to shorten a 1995 jail sentence on federal drug charges.

The report shows that Alfamega testified against a heroin dealer, among other criminals, in exchange for having a 110-month sentence reduced by 18 months.

As of now, Alfamega has not released a statement on the situation.
