Alfamega Breaks Silence On Daughter's Stabbing

Atlanta rapper Alfamega has confirmed that his son and daughter were involved in a violent altercation inside of T.I.'s Club Crucial in Atlanta.

Alfamega told AllHipHop.com that his daughter was involved in some sort of altercation inside of the club, which resulted in her being stabbed multiple times.

Alfamega’s son was also beaten and suffered from a broken jaw, when he tried to intervene on behalf of his sister.

"I had a talk with Tip’s uncle Derrick, who co-owns Club Crucial," Alfamega told AllHipHop.com in an exclusive interview. "I was like ‘my daughter got stabbed up there dog and my son got his jaw fractured. He ‘was like huh? I didn’t know that.’ They didn’t know, they people they got into it with didn’t know they were my children. I was told that my children wasn’t in the wrong. The girls and the dudes attacked her and stabbed her and basically my son jumped in cause they were attacking his sister and somebody hit him from the blindside.”

His daughter suffered from three stab wounds in addition to one collapsed lung. 

She was released from the hospital and is currently recuperating from her injuries, as is the rapper’s son who also suffered multiple contusions, in addition to the broken jaw.

At press time it is not known if anyone has been charged in the assault.

“He [Derrick] called the guys who supposed to run the little crew they got into it with and they didn’t know it was my children either," Alfamega told AllHipHop.com. "They were really shocked and remorseful. And I told they the only reason I am going to give them a pass is because they didn’t know. And I don’t want to take it there because I still got a little situation. I don’t want it to be deeper than what it is. I am glad that both of my children are still living.”

The incident occurred on Christmas Eve (December 24), just two days after T.I. was released from a low security prison facility in Arkansas, after serving less than a year for possession of machine guns and silencers.

Alfamega had a falling out with T.I. and the Grand Hustle camp in 2009, after thesmokinggun.com revealed that Alfamega had served as an informant in a drug case.

The rapper was quick to point out that the incident had nothing to do with his feud with T.I.

Alfamega stated that the perpetrators of the crime had no idea that the people that they assaulted were his daughter and son.

“I straight up told the dudes there wouldn’t be any street retaliation behind it, even though there might be others that don’t feel the same way I do that surround me," Alfamega told AllHipHop.com "And at the end of the day, it’s all about what I want to do. And I don’t want no street retaliation of violence. It’s a new year. And all in a nutshell they didn’t know. I would look at it different if they knew they was my children. And I don’t wish that upon nobodies children.”

Instagram Testing Feature That Hides Number Of “Likes” From Users

Instagram could be gearing up for a permanent change that would allow users to focus on content instead of the number of likes that each posts receives. The Facebook-owned social networking giant is testing a tool that hides the number of likes that each post receives and video views., making them only visible to the account holder.

“We’re currently running a test that hides the total number of likes and video views for some people,” the company announced on social media Wednesday (July 17). For now, Instagram is running the test in Australia, Canada, Brazil, Japan and three other countries.

“We want your friends to focus on the photos and videos you share, not how many likes they get. You can still see your own likes by tapping on the list of people who've liked it, but your friends will not be able to see how many likes your post has received,” the company explained in a series of tweets.

We’re currently running a test that hides the total number of likes and video views for some people in the following countries:

✅ Australia ✅ Brazil ✅ Canada ✅ Ireland ✅ Italy ✅ Japan ✅ New Zealand pic.twitter.com/2OdzpIUBka

We’re looking forward to learning more about how this change might benefit everyone’s experience on Instagram.

Jan Wong, an app analyzer who scopes out hidden codes from your favorite apps, discovered that the company was toying around with the feature in April. “Instagram is testing hiding like count from audiences,” Wong tweeted at the time.

The change could make for a big adjustment for social influencers who seemingly depend on numbers to measure their engagement. The same goes for general users who could potentially feel less pressure to garner a certain number of likes for each post.

You know you that bitch when you cause all this conversation 💁🏽‍♀️

A post shared by MOSTHATEDCARDI (@iamcardib) on Jul 17, 2019 at 7:01pm PDT

Trump targeted Omar, and other women minorities in Congress in a weekend Twitter rant. He also stood silently as a crowd chanted “Send her back!” during his North Carolina rally Wednesday (July 17).

When asked if she was “scared” for her safety Omar replied, “What I am scared for is the safety [of] people who share my identity. When you have a president who clearly thinks someone like me should ‘go back.’ The message that he’s sending is not for me, it’s for every single person who shares an identity with me, and he’s telling them that this is not their country. What we tell them is that this is [their country] and they are welcome here.”

The Somali refugee who migrated to the U.S. at age 12 and became a U.S. citizen by age 17, is the first muslim woman elected to Congress and the first Somali American legislator in the U.S. When asked about Cardi’s endorsement Omar told TMZ, “It’s really amazing to see what that message means for everybody who is listening and paying attention.”

Omar also reacted to a reporter questioning if Trump’s taunts were actually racist. “The fact that you’re still asking that question is what’s wrong,” she said. “We have said this president is racist. We have condemned his racist remarks.”
