While serving his seven years imprisonment, which started in 1995, he completed seventeen hundred songs, three screen plays and penned a non-fiction book.

Career

After being released in 2002, he took the 1,700 songs he wrote while incarcerated to a family friend, Beanie Sigel. Sigel was interested, he offered Alfamega a recording but couldn't seal the deal. Six months later Alfamega collaborated on a song with David Banner which led to a deal with Universal Records.

Industry insiders are comparing Alfamega to the late Tupac Shakur and The Notorious BIG., because of lyrical content, style and the fact that all three share the Astrological sign, Gemini.

T.I. Drops Rapper Alfamega From Grand Hustle Label

He booted fellow rapper Alfamega from his Grand Hustle Records following a published report by SmokingGun.com that claims Alfamega was an informant for the drug enforcement administration during a trial on a heroin trafficker: [5]

"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 have always said, you must take responsibility for your own actions.

We at Grand Hustle can not support or condone the blaming of others for our own mistakes.

I hope and pray to God, bless his savings plans, but I don't foresee me or my company playing a role in his personal or professional business."

T.I., born Clifford Harris, said during an interview on Atlanta’s 107.9 radio station.

Social Media

He has a YouTube channel with 827 subscribers and 478k views. Most of his videos are made available to watch on his channel.[2]
