T.I. has embarked on a sporadic tour with his Grand Hustle Entertainment roster including Young Dro, DJ Drama and newcomer rapper, Alfamega.

The series of dates kicked off earlier this month and will end on August 31 in Seattle. The run coincides with the rapper's completion of 1,000 hours of court-ordered community service before serving one year in prison stemming from federal gun charges.

In other news, Grand Hustle brokered a joint venture deal with Capitol Records/EMI for Alfamega. The MC's debut release, "I Am Alfamega," is slated for September 16, led by the first single "Uh Huh" featuring T.I. and Nitti.

"Alfamega is not only a good story teller," says T.I. "He has a unique story to tell, not many people have experienced or have walked in the shoes that he has."

Releasing music on the Atlanta scene since 2002, Alfamega reached national recognition last year as a feature alongside Busta Rhymes on T.I.'s single, "Hurt."

T.I.'s upcoming album "Paper Trail" hits shelves on August 12.
