Shyne Officially Deported — He’s Already Touched Down In Belize

Shyne was officially deported to Belize on Wednesday (October 28), taken directly from holding to the airport in New York, where he flew to his home country.

According to local outlets, he arrived in Belize around 2:40 p.m. local time on Thursday (October 28), escorted by a U.S. Marshall following his deportation.

He was processed by local authorities at the airport, then was welcomed by his father Dean Barrow, Prime Minister of Belize, his mother Imeon Myvett and other members of his family, as well as fans.

Shyne's team told media that he would now like to be called Moses Michael Leviy to reflect his conversion to Judaism.

"Shyne is home. He wants to say how happy he is to be home and to be a free man," said the rapper's uncle, Michael Finnegan, current Minister of Housing. "He would love to have a conversation with the media, but because he was legally advised by Professor Ogletree, he must not speak to the media because he doesn't want to prejudice his situation with the US government or with the Belize government. So he asked me to ask you that he does not want to disrespect you the media, but please to understand what is going on."

Finnegan also revealed that Shyne has been given an entire floor at the Radisson Fort George Hotel to give him some privacy, until his place is set up at his uncle's house, which will take around two weeks.

"He needs some privacy, he needs not to be around anybody, he needs just to sit down in isolation and contemplate his life," his uncle explained. "I think that we need to respect that. If you notice, he has lost an extreme amount of weight."

The rapper was set to be released earlier this month, but U.S. Customs officials delayed it while they decided whether he should be deported or not.

The decision has been made, but Shyne plans to fight the decision from Belize. But, in the meantime, reports say he'll work on new music while his immigration issues are hashed out.

    I hope the dude gets back to makin music soon, he has a ton of potential. On the other hand, the quote from his uncle about him needing isolation seems odd. You'd think he'd want as much contact with family and friends as possible after doing his bid.

  • Seereene1

    Shyne's father is the Prime Minister of Belize! Listening to his music, he made it sound like he was a struggling, stone-cold killer thug from the streets. What a fraud. Good riddance!

    He is wearing the shirt as a sign of gratitude to his lawyers. Prof. Ogletree is a crinimal law professor at Harvard Law School.

    Also, glad dude is out. When he got locked up I was a kid in the hood...since then I graduated from Harvard Law and have had several jobs. That's a lot of life lost in a box.

  • http://koncas.com Belize City Dude

    Shyne should just leave this rap stuff and just live his life in Belize. Start some business stuff and forget about living up to fans and haters standards. He should use this as a learning experience for his future plans. If he decides to pursue music I would still support him

  • OZone
