Hip-hop star TI has dumped rapper Alfamega from his Grand Hustle Records label following a string of allegations about the star's history as a police informer.

Hip-hop star TI has dumped rapper Alfamega from his Grand Hustle Records label following a string of allegations about the star's history as a police informer.

Alfamega was last week at the centre of allegations he passed information to the US Drug Enforcement Administration during the investigation of a heroin trafficker.

The reports were published by the Smoking Gun and have now led TI - currently serving a prison term over weapons charges - to ditch his protege from his music label.

TI insisted he is disappointed that Alfamega did not tell him about his background.

He said: "Even though all our artists and employees are asked by us to be honest and open about their history, at no time did Alfamega disclose to me or Grand Hustle what has now appeared in the media. - LR/WNWCBB/ZN
