Nothing like catching up with old friends
So much for a 10 round fight. TSG just laid the knockout blow on Alfamega by unearthing the official transcripts from his snitching days. Ain’t no letter Alfamega can write to come back from this.
We hate to pile on poor Cedric “Alfamega” Zellars, but when the rapper recently surfaced to claim that a TSG story about his previous work as an informant was wrong (and maybe even based on fabricated documents), we decided to revisit his days as a government snitch. The 37-year-old Zellars, a protégé of T.I. (real name: Clifford Harris), was ditched by the superstar rapper after our May 5 report about his dealings with the Drug Enforcement Administration and testimony against Ali Baaqar, an Atlanta drug dealer.
The transcript also shows that Zellars’s testimony was briefly halted when he was stricken with a stomach ache. When his cross-examination resumed, the convicted drug and weapons dealer spoke about his efforts to contact the FBI. “I had people calling, and I was writing,” testified Zellars, who was then serving a nine-year prison sentence. When a defense lawyer asked him about providing information to the government, Zellars noted, “I been asked for information. They picked some of the guys up, but it didn’t do nothing to help me. I just gave it.” Asked why he cooperated, Zellars answered, “Because they asked me.” In return for his snitching, Zellars had 18 months shaved off his prison term.
While mace has no apparent effects on good ‘ol Alfa, the thoughts of being labeled a snitch for life at least made him have second thoughts. “TSG ain’t nothin’ to eff with… TSG ain’t nothin’ to eff with.”
