Rapper Alshawn Martin is said to have been the only artist who was truly signed to TreWay Entertainment. TreWay is owned by Shotti, whom is currently incarcerated and facing serious time in the same RICO case that “Dummy Boy” rapper 6ixNine is up against. Alshawn recently stated that Shotti had lawyers pull some of his music off of SoundCloud and called him a “hater”. He says that he wants off of TreWay in order to continue his career, amidst the legal battles that Shotti is facing.
Alshwan has released a diss record towards Shotti titled “Call From Shotti”. He warns Shotti that he knows things and that he’s not even try to expose him completely. However, he makes what’s on his mind known. #PRESSPLAY

If you didn’t know, Cormega is a hip hop artist that could be classified as “a rapper’s rapper”. Even prior to his deal with Def Jam Records in the late ’90s and his short stint with super group The Firm (which featured Nas, AZ, and Foxy Brown. Nature replaced Cormega after his departure from the group), the Queensbridge hustler turned rapper was regarded by many as the best out of the same neighborhood that produced the likes of Nas, Mobb Deep, MC Shan, and Roxane Shante. Over the years, Mega has has continued to work independently and solidify himself as solid emcee.
