Faizon recently posted a photo of himself and notorious Harlem drug kingpin turned witness Alberto 'Alpo' Martinez, who was played by Cam'ron in Paid in Full. Faizon hinted at an upcoming project with Alpo with the caption, "Y’all not ready for Alpo and Faizon ...oh sh*t." Faizon later deleted the post after receiving backlash for posing with the controversial figure.
While Alpo was once revered in the streets, his rep took a huge blow when he killed his best friend and business partner Rich Porter in 1990. A year later, he was arrested in Washington D.C. for selling drugs. Alpo went on to testify against his alleged D.C. enforcer Wayne "Silk" Perry in open court to spare himself a life sentence, leading many to label him as a "snitch." For his testimony against Perry, who received five consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole, Alpo was sentenced to 35 years in prison. According to Vice, Alpo was released from prison in a little-known federal prison witness protection program called "cheese factories" on the inside in 2015.
