The O.D.: A Mixtape Daily Exclusive
Yeah, we just dropped that Lil Wayne exclusive Thursday morning (July 30), but we had to come back with another one. Everyone wants to know the about this new plot twist in the [artist id="1225081"]T.I.[/artist]/ [artist id="2340664"]Alfamega[/artist] saga. The latest development is a Mega song called “Round One” hit the Internet on Thursday. Because it comes less than a week after Alfamega sent several media outlets an open letter to his former boss, many are interpreting the track as a T.I. dis.
“Get your money up, let it pile up,” Mega raps with a sped-up flow. “Every other song, I’mma switch the style up.
“Committing treason, get more than 100 lashes,” he adds. “Drop your ass like Jay did Dame Dash’s/ Let me cool down before I blow a head gasket/ Slappin’ this bi—, put a ni–a in casket/ One phone cool do a ni–a something tragic/ Make your wife a widow and your son a little bastard.”
But in an exclusive interview with Mixtape Daily, Mega shot down the assumption that he is taking digs at T.I.
“The song was recorded when I was with Grand Hustle,” Mega said of the song, which was set to be included in a mixtape called 10 Round K.O. ” My mixtape was already recorded before. I been hitting people on my Twitter this morning saying only fake people feed into fake beef. [The mixtape songs were] recorded when I was with Grand Hustle. I’m on a different thinking level. I’m not into rap beef. Beef gets more attention than the positive stuff. I don’t wanna be put into that category of beefing with Tip, especially when he’s down. I felt bad when he did what he did with me when I was in hospital chained to the hospital bed.”
Mega said that an image circulating featuring Tip’s and Mega’s heads superimposed on the bodies of two pugilists was made by a fan. He insisted the mixtape has absolutely no dis records aimed at anyone in particular.
“It’s just showing a different side of being lyrical,” he declared. “It’s really like the game ‘Fight Night.’ It was recorded it in the sense of ‘Fight Night.’ Every song has a different round. I’m not dissing nobody, man.”
The mixtape was supposed to be released online soon. However, shortly after the initial conversation with Mixtape Daily this morning, Mega informed us that 10 Round K.O. will no longer be coming out.
“People are just going to misinterpret the project, and I’m going forward in another direction.”
In May, Alfamega was kicked out of T.I.’s Grand Hustle family in the wake of an article on the TheSmokingGun.com that said Mega was an informant for the government in the 1990s in a drug case against a defendant named Ali Baaqar.
On Monday, Alfa released a video claiming that the DEA documents the Smoking Gun posted were false. “Somebody typed them up.”
“I ain’t no snitch, I don’t work for the DEA or none of that,” Mega said in his vlog, adding that he was pressured to lie in his testimony against Baaqar to avoid jail time. “From the time I did it, I was remorseful. It hurt me. I ain’t snitch on this dude, I lied on this dude.”
In the video, Mega says he lied out of “loyalty” to an unnamed person. He also claims that T.I. knew of his shady past. “Tip might sit there and fake with y’all. Shawty knew what it was the whole time. I been told him this.”
