According to The Smoking Gun, T.I. protege/goon, Alfamega, was an informant for the Drug Enforcement Administration.

The site alleges the Grand Hustle artist made a plea bargain deal in order to ease his sentence for a 1995 gun charge. The Smoking Gun did a background check on Alfamega's birth name, Cedric Zellars, and obtained legal documents stating that he appeared as a witness against a heroin trafficker and several others, in exchange for cutting his sentence to 18 months from 110.

The expose on TSG claims Zellars "during his cooperation against [known heroin dealer] Baaqar, Zellars met with a DEA agent and a federal prosecutor, and subsequently testified at trial.

More information will follow, as Alfamega has yet to make an official statement.

Alfamega's debut 'I Am Alfamega' is nowhere to be found on Atlantic's release schedule.
